AI in Education: Innovations, Opportunities, and Ethical Perspectives

AI in Education: Innovations, Opportunities, and Ethical Perspectives
This webinar will delve into the increasingly prevalent role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in our daily lives and its potential in education. From adaptive learning systems to intelligent tutoring systems, AI is being used to provide personalised and engaging learning experiences for students. This session will explore the practical applications of AI in education, highlighting its ability to help teachers save time and enhance students’ learning experiences. The ethical considerations surrounding AI will also be discussed, including privacy concerns and the potential for biases in algorithms. In addition, we will explore the Erasmus project Artificial Intelligence for Teachers (AI4T), which is investigating the use of AI tools to support students’ learning in education as one of its project objectives.
