Emerging Technologies In The Classroom
Report on national research and an expert roundtable commissioned by RM Technology
Artificial intelligence has the potential to revolutionise the education landscape, empowering students with personalised learning experiences, enabling educators to create dynamic and adaptive teaching methodologies, and transforming the way knowledge is acquired, shared, and applied. To explore the current impact of these emerging technologies, we commissioned national research and hosted a roundtable with industry experts.
The research explored teachers’ and students' views on AI and the safety implications of generative AI tools such as Chat GPT.
Artificial intelligence has a long history, from predictive modelling applications for weather and financial forecasting to image and voice recognition algorithms. Recent releases of generative AI applications have captured the general public’s attention as they appear to possess the ability to mimic what was considered the sole remit of human intelligence.
This raises questions for the education sector. Until now, there were few ways in which a student could easily outsource their work and pass off the results as their own. On the other hand, some educationalists believe that generative AI could be a welcome disruption to the way we teach and assess learners.
RM commissioned research into how pupils are using AI, how they feel about it and what their teachers think about AI’s role in education.
