The advent of artificial intelligence (AI) heralds a transformative era in education characterized by the integration of intelligent systems, including smart cities, schools, and classrooms. This paper explores the transition from traditional to modern educational paradigms, underscoring the need to redefine teachers' roles in the 21st century. In this context, educators are envisioned to leverage emerging information technologies, such as mobile internet, big data, and cloud computing, to construct a student-centric educational ecosystem that is accurate, personalized, flexible, and humane. This shift aims to facilitate the intelligent transformation of education, foster a symbiotic relationship between AI technology and educational practices, and optimally support students' developmental needs. Through this integrative approach, the paper illuminates the pathways for accelerating the progression towards an intelligent educational framework, thereby meeting the dynamic demands of contemporary learners.
