College Teachers’ Anxiety Towards Artificial Intelligence: A Comparative Study
Keywords:Artificial Intelligence (AI), Artificial Intelligence Anxiety (AIA), Artificial Intelligence in Education (AIED), College Teachers
Today’s technological development advances in the new form of technology that based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) which predicts the future nature of educational technology. These AI techniques are giving an opportunity to provide teaching learning process more flexible like anytime and anywhere. Since till now in education system teacher play a fundamental role, so cope up with this new AI oriented changing world where quality enhancement of whole system of education is prioritized, therefore technological acceptance and adjustment are two essential criteria. Thus, anxiety level of teachers is important factor for fulfilling these two criteria for using AI devices in instructional process. So, AI – Anxiety (AIA) of teachers play a vital role for proper application of AI technologies in the field of education (AIED). The objectives were to compare mean scores of AIA of College Teachers according to their Gender and Year wise teaching experiences respectively. The sample comprised of 113 college teachers selected through Stratified Random Sampling Method. Out of 113, 51 were males and 62 were females. Besides that, according to their teaching experience 55 were having 0-7 yrs., 28 were having 8-15 yrs., and 30 were having above 15 yrs., respectively. For the purpose of data collection Demographic Information Sheet and Artificial Intelligence Anxiety Scale (AIAS) were used and put to appropriate data analysis. The findings of the study were AIA of College Teachers did not differ significantly according to their Gender and Year wise Teaching Experiences respectively.
