Continuing our miniseries on AI in education with the third episode centred around a global perspective on AI, host Professor Rose Luckin is joined by Andreas Schleicher of the OECD, Dr Elise Ecoff of Nord Anglia Education, and Dan Worth of Tes.  This episode and our series are generously sponsored by Nord Anglia Education.

In our third instalment of this valuable series, we head out beyond the UK and the English-speaking world to get a global perspective on AI, and ask how educators and developers around the world build and engage with AI, and what users, teachers and learners want from the technology that might tell people back home a thing or two. We examine how international use of AI might change the way we engage with AI, and we also ask why they might be doing things differently.

Guests:

  • Dr Andreas Schleicher, Director for the Directorate of Education & Skills, OECD
  • Dr Elise Ecoff, Chief Education Officer, Nord Anglia Education
  • Dan Worth, Senior Editor, Tes

Talking points and questions include: 

  • What are other countries tech and education ecosystems doing to develop and implement AI?
  • International considerations of ethics and regulation
  • Is the first world imposing a way of looking at technology and its innovation on the third world? What assumptions are we making, and are we mindful of the context?
  • Is the first world restricting innovation through specific regulation to change what technology is being built and how, and who might it benefit?
  • Skills and competencies development can be driven by the needs of business - what priorities for AI education exhibited by international models could the UK adopt or consider?
