The future of AI in education

AI is currently the biggest talking point in education at the moment. While some sources say it will change the face of education forever others say that it comes with great risk. In this presentation, we will explore the ‘big picture’ of AI in education including several key principles: 

– What is AI and how does it work 
–  AI ethics 
–  The role of the teacher with AI 
–  AI as a learning tool for students 
– The future of AI
