What’s in this episode?
Karine and Rose meet this week to discuss Ofsted ratings, how AI can transform teachers’ day-to-day tasks, and interview friend and colleague Dr Fiona Aubrey Smith on the recent publication of her book: From EdTech to PedTech: Changing the Way We Think About Digital Technology. Aimed at teachers and leaders looking to create greater impact on teaching and learning through the use of digital technology in schools, From EdTech to PedTech translates research on the effective integration of digital technology in education into relevant, accessible, and practical guidance for teachers and school leaders. This much-needed handbook bridges the gap between knowing ‘what works’ and knowing how to make it work for you and your learners.
Ofsted’s rating can be transformative and catastrophic. Given Karine’s experience as a headteacher, what does she think of its one-word proclamations? Also under discussion is the DfE’s call for submission of evidence regarding the opportunities and risks of AI in education, and their recently published report on generative AI, available to view below.
Material discussed in this episode includes:
- From EdTech to PedTech: Changing the Way we Think About Digital Technology
- UK Department for Education: Generative AI in Education: Departmental Statement
- Institute for Ethical AI in Education: Final Report
- OECD: Empowering Young Children in the Digital Age
- Machine Learning & Human Intelligence
