Artificial Intelligence in Education ~ Promise and Implications for Teaching and Learning ~

Session Description
Multimillion-dollar funded companies are increasingly selling their education-focused AI technologies into schools worldwide – despite limited evidence of effectiveness, and with little consultation or debate. The widespread introduction of AI in education needs to be subjected to critical scrutiny, and I will recommend that educators engage in early discussions with the AI technologists and entrepreneurs – all to ensure that the use of AI in classrooms is genuinely beneficial and that it always starts and ends with the learning.
