Description

“Artificial Intelligence in Education”: A Private Seminar for Grantmakers For Education (GFE)

Date: Wednesday, June 5th, 2019

Time: 8:30am-3:30pm (agenda below)

Location: Hosted at Harvard Graduate School of Education, Cambridge, Massachusetts USA


How do we insure that Artificial Intelligence does not imply Aggravated Inequities?

Join the Center for Curriculum Redesign and Grantmakers for Education members for a private seminar hosted at Harvard University’ Graduate School of Education, in Cambridge MA on Wednesday June 5, 2019. Together, we will explore the role that Artificial Intelligence will play in affecting both the What and the How of Education. The purpose of this program will be to empower philanthropic leaders to work in more effective, strategic ways. Ample time will be devoted to understand the unfolding threats and affordances of Artificial Intelligence in Education.

Institute Highlights

Design for equity

Understand the impact of A.I. on the What (standards/assessments, curricula) and the How (pedagogical practices)

All of the following questions will be explored:

  • What constitutes “robust” employability? And modern knowledge disciplines (algorithmics, computational thinking, etc.).

  • What are the requirements for succeeding in life? (societal, personal) particularly linked to social/emotional learning, including resilience?

  • How could this exacerbate racial and economic injustices? does Artificial Intelligence = Aggravated Inequities?

  • What are the various EdTech systems, and their new affordances?

  • How do they compare to human education/brain science?

  • How do they interact with the teachers and/or students?

  • What are the pitfalls to avoid? (biases amplifying inequities, etc.)

And most critically: What are the consequences for grantmakers and grantmaking? Which areas deserve more focus?

Connect with colleagues

Interact with fellow grantmakers through the Q&A and collaborative conversation sessions, and more casual opportunities over meals and beverages.

“Take-it-home” focus

Think through actionable applications of these ideas to your work and context.
