Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to address some of the biggest challenges in education today, innovate teaching and learning practices. AI has the potential to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. Today we would like to present some opportunities, how the educational sector tries to make the first steps of introducing AI into practice.
The workshop is organised by ETBI, Šolski center Nova Gorica, Sataedu, Chaire UNESCO RELIA and Le Laboratoire des Sciences du Numérique de Nantes, Nantes University.
Mr. Brian Hickey, ICT Projects Support Manager, FET, Education and Training Boards Ireland, introduces the event.
Mrs. Lidija Kralj, EUN Schoolnet: AI in education
Artificial Intelligence in Education is one of the currently emerging fields in educational technology. Whilst it has been around for about 30 years with high expectations about its potential, it is still unclear how it can impact on teaching and learning, and how to make pedagogical advantage of it on a broader scale. We will talk about current state of AI in education in EU, potential for further development and ethical challenges. Which learning outcomes could be in the curriculum focusing on AI, how teachers and students could learn more about AI and learn with the support of the AI.
Prof. Colin de La Higuera, University of Nantes: AI for Teachers
Artificial intelligence in schools, for schools, in and outside the classroom is becoming an important issue today. Teachers are going to be teaching skills which may seem to be no longer needed. They will be facing a less deterministic world where decisions can depend on what AI systems have to say. They are going to have to help their pupils build themselves in order to cope in this world, and before that are going to need to understand the topic to be able to use AI, advise about AI, know when AI is wrong, choose the situations in which it is interesting or not to adopt AI. We will advocate in favour of teacher training and try to give some examples of what the teacher should know about.
