Title: The role of AI in education and the way that it can help teachers and learners in a COVID-19 compliant education system.

Abstract

COVID-19 has precipitated a huge education experiment that may change how we teach and learn forever, but how should teacher training address the challenge we now face? In this talk, I will discuss the role of AI in education and the way that it can help teachers and learners in a COVID-19 compliant education system. I will discuss the current stage of AI's application in education and the manner in which AI has supported teachers and learners during the current pandemic restrictions. I will also look towards the future and consider the way in which AI could be used to support a COVID-compliant transformation in education. A transformation that will enable all learners to achieve their potential. Throughout the talk I will use examples from different AI systems to illustrate what is happening now and what could happen in the future. I will also suggest some useful ways in which education can become 'AI Ready' through changes to teacher training.
