Artificial intelligence seems to be everywhere at the moment, but it is hard to pin down exactly what this means for educational research. In February the Artificial and Human Intelligence Group of the British Educational Research Association is holding the second in a series of three events. The overarching aim is to identify areas where educational research can inform or benefit from related work on human and machine intelligence.
We are bringing together researchers, technologists, and postgraduate and research students for a study day on 6th February 2020 at the University of Westminster, to hear about the latest technological developments, map out the boundaries of what is a rapidly developing and very exciting educational research sub-field, think through possible future directions for investigation and establish a network of colleagues for collaborative funding proposals.
The main topics of focus are:
- Data and privacy rights
- Inclusivity and fairness
- Safeguarding children who own/use smart phones.
- Learning Technologies – digital environments that support learners by providing direct, individualised, and adaptive feedback; tools that utilise students’ digital data from their digital and physical interactions to increase teachers’ awareness of the outcomes and processes involved in learning.
The day will include keynote talks, demos, themed group discussions and a panel Q&A session, as well as a research students’ showcase. Final date for booking is 20 January 2020.
