[1] [Herald Interview] Minister turns to AI classes to cool competition in education

기사 요약: 이주호 교육부 장관, “AI 디지털 교과서 활용으로 주어진 문제에 대한 답을 하는 학생이 아닌 질문할 수 있는 인재 양성할 것”

Education Minister Lee Ju-ho is attempting to change the course of South Korea’s education system by adopting artificial intelligence technology in all public school classrooms, which the minister claims will transform the nation’s hypercompetitive education culture and make it the first country in the world to adopt such measures at scale.

* Attempting: 시도하다

* Adopt: 채택하다; 쓰다; 입양하다

* Transform: 완전히 바꿔 놓다; 변형시키다

* Hypercompetitive: 과도하게 경쟁적인

Calling it a “paradigm shift,” Lee said in an interview with The Korea Herald on Monday that the new plan of replacing paper-based textbooks with digital devices and AI-powered learning system, is aimed at solving educational inequality and reducing the heavy reliance on private education.

* Replace: 대신하다; 교체하다

* Aimed at: ~을 목표로 한

* Inequality: 불평등

* Reliance: 의존; 의지

“Students would connect to the cloud via electronic devices and access AI tutors for one-on-one personalized learning. Meanwhile, teachers would look after students’ social and emotional behaviors or offer a curriculum centering around active learning,” Lee said.

* Via: 통하여

* Access: 접속하다

* One-on-one: 일대일

When asked about his view on South Korea’s enduring education fever, wherein certain kindergarteners are sent to hagwon to prepare for medical school enrollment, the minister said that household spending on private education appears to have reached its peak, leaving no room for further expansion.

* Enduring: 지속되는

* No room for something: ~를 위한 여지가 없다
