What's in this episode?

This week we have the final episode of the Ufi Upskilling mini-series on The Edtech Podcast. This series takes a bite-size look at technologies in work-place training which are changing the ways we learn and thrive. This week, we look at artificial intelligence in adult education.

What else? This week's main feature is a LIVE podcast discussion on how AI can help in education, including the need to maintain a balance between a reliance on computers and human interaction.

Finally, we touch base with two educators concerned about balancing the huge potential of AI with some deep understanding of the implicated risks.
