Artificial Intelligence in Education

    should students learn for the age of Artificial Intelligence? To educate a “whole child for a whole world”, education systems must curate their traditional curricula (Maths, etc.) and focus on what is most important for success in life and work (e.g. more probabilities and statistics; computer science; social sciences; entrepreneurship; wellness; etc.).To address the imperatives of a modern world, curricula must aim at developing the four dimensions of a 21st century learner:
  • Knowledge (essential content and core concepts; modernized and modern disciplines)
  • Skills (“21st Century Skills” or “4 C’s”)
  • Character (Social-Emotional Learning)
  • Meta-Learning (“learn how to learn”: metacognition and growth mindset)Lastly, A.I. will also afford capabilities to advance adaptive learning, in all of sequential, Socratic, and self-directed constructivist systems.These systems will vastly multiply the abilities of teachers to deliver all of the above needs at scale.

High Possibility STEM Classrooms: Integrated STEM Learning in Research and Practice

  • How can you build your capacity and confidence to lead and teach Integrated STEM well in K-6classrooms and what could assist you to do that?
  • Imagine that capacity and confidence-building in Integrated STEM might take place while you are leading or teaching in a K-6 school where the students are:
    • from language backgrounds other than English
    • from low SES families
    • learning in highly urbanized, metropolitan schools.
  • This session will share findings from research in Integrated STEM in Australian schools conducted in early, elementary and middle years classrooms with teachers and students where the notion of building professional capacity and confidence was front of mind.

Adapting to and recognising how pedagogy has to cater for the 21st Century

The challenges and opportunities that the 21st century bring are causing some schools and education systems to re-evaluate how they operate. However, this might be a simple thing to state, but the real challenge for schools and education systems is two-fold, one, recognising this change and more specifically that the pedagogy has to change as well, and second, how to adapt our pedagogy to this change once one recognises the fact. This session will explore how a growth mindset can help schools recognise both ways and why schools should recognise that 21st-century education needs to change as well as how pedagogy can adapt to and meet the challenges and opportunities that the 21st-century presents.
