Getting AI Right in Education

Dialogues - Getting AI Right in Education - webpost pre-event

Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools suddenly popped out of high-tech labs and into the mainstream in 2023 with the arrival of ChatGPT and other similar engines. The impact on all the stakeholders in education —­ policymakers, educators and students — is immense. AI can now write papers and give answers on almost any topic. It has placed educators in a dilemma: to embrace AI or not to embrace?

How can we use these new tools, which are rapidly evolving and gathering pace, in our schools and colleges? What are some of the issues and challenges to ensure responsible use of AI in teaching and learning?

Join this Dialogue on 25 April 2024 at 3pm (GMT +8) featuring a panel of experts who will address these issues.

This event is organised in partnership with Singapore Education Consulting Group (SECG).

This event is in a virtual format — you may participate online via Zoom.
