Delighted to launch this new 5-episode miniseries on AI in education, sponsored by Nord Anglia Education, host Professor Rose Luckin kicks things off for the Edtech Podcast by examining how we keep education as the centre of gravity for AI.
AI has exploded in the public consciousness with innovative large language models writing our correspondence and helping with our essays, and sophisticated images, music, impersonations and video generated on-demand from prompts. Whilst big companies proclaim what this technology can achieve and how it will affect work, life, play and learning, the consumer and user on the ground and in our schools likely has little idea how it works or why, and it seems like a lot of loud voices are telling us only half the story. What’s the truth behind AI’s power? How do we know it works, and what are we using to measure its successes or failures? What are our young people getting out of the interaction with this sophisticated, scaled technology, and who can we trust to inject some integrity into the discourse?
AI has exploded in the public consciousness with innovative large language models writing our correspondence and essays for us, and systems capable of generating sophisticated images, music, audio impersonations and video. Whilst big companies proclaim what this technology can do and how it will affect work, life, play and learning, the consumer and user on the ground and in the schools likely has little idea how it works or why, and it seems like a lot of loud voices are telling us one thing, and it’s only half the story. What’s the truth behind AI’s power? How do we know it works, and what are we using to measure its success? What are our young people getting out of the interaction with this sophisticated, scaled technology, and who can we trust to inject some sanity into the discourse?
Digital Transformation! Digital Strategy! Professional Education! What do they mean, and how do we implement them in a school? Today’s episode covers the evolving demands of the classroom, teacher professional education, and digital strategy and transformation.
SCIENCE! Under discussion today are the ways in which students who were switched off the sciences at school manage to retain their curiosity about the subjects and can even reengage with it later in life. Professor Rose Luckin is very lucky to have in the online studio this week Dr Andrew Morris, Honorary Associate Professor at UCL, former president of the Education Section of the British Science Association, and author, whose book, Bugs, Drugs, and Three-Pin Plugs: Everyday Science, Simply Explained, is now available wherever books are sold.
Rose hosts Daisy Christodoulou, Director of Education at No More Marking in the EdTech Podcast Zoom studio this week, discussing AI regulation, evidence and effectiveness, and student outcomes in AI assessment, and what we think the future of AI-powered education might look like, and why!
Rose plays host to Nina Huntemann, Chief Academic Officer of Chegg, and Lord Jim Knight, in the EdTech Podcast Zoom studio this week, attempting to understand how best to cut through the white noise surrounding AI’s hype, misinformation, exaggeration and marketing, and determining just how positive for education AI can be if done responsibly.
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.
In discussion with Cambridge Partnership for Education’s Jane Mann, Professor Rose Luckin asks about evidence, impact, investment, and diversity, equity, inclusion and ethics in educational ecosystems beyond the UK, and what we might learn from them.
Karine and Rose meet this week to discuss Internet Safety with Edurio’s Ernest Jenavs, and Natterhub’s Caroline Allams. The group will explore Edurio’s Autumn 2022 report on Pupil Safeguarding, the reaction to Ofsted Chief Inspector Amanda Spielman’s ‘surprise’ over mobile phone use in-class, and discuss good technology role-modelling for young people.
#267 – What Does a College Degree Mean to a Returning Adult Student? (EdSurge on The Edtech Podcast (Second Acts Series, Episode 3))
This is the last episode in a three-part series to explore the nuances of adult lifelong learners and what sparks their return to University.
For this episode we will examine topics such how we use existing technology to assist with DEI and ethics, and what we know of technology that does not include this perspective. We ask why that might be, and we look at the art of data capture, and data irresponsibility: what are we capturing that we shouldn’t, who is being affected by our biases, and if this is a step in the development of technological interventions that organisations can afford to skip. How do we mitigate systemic bias and scaled harm? What are examples of inclusive technology that accommodate the learning styles, online behaviours, device access, and dis/abilities of learners? Can we place more pressure on leadership in schools and institutions to incorporate inclusive technologies? What do we know of user agency, and how does that affect the design and transparency of an EdTech solution?
