Exploring the Role of AI in Education for a Sustainable Future
“It is imperative to address AI in education now to realise key opportunities, prevent and mitigate emergent risks, and tackle unintended consequences. Artificial intelligence has emerged as a powerful force, revolutionising various sectors, and education is no exception. Like many of you, I have been captivated by the rapidly evolving world of artificial intelligence. It’s a topic that’s difficult to keep up with, as new advancements and breakthroughs seem to happen every day. But amidst the overwhelming flow of information, it’s crucial for us to recognise the importance of AI and its impact on teaching and learning.” Jose Parra, Pedagogical Innovation Manager at Rennes SB.
