AI at the helm: breaking boundaries in education

There is a need to address the limitations and challenges faced by today's conventional education systems, such as limited access to quality education, lack of personalised learning experiences and the inability to adapt to the diverse needs of students. This has resulted in the call for innovative solutions to bridge these gaps and ensure equitable educational opportunities for all.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) may have taken the world by storm but despite its challenges, AI has the transformative potential to revolutionise the field of education. Prof. Yike Guo, world-renowned computer scientist and provost at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, joins us at EDUtech Asia to illustrate how AI technologies are reshaping traditional educational systems, breaking down barriers between learning and teaching, and unlocking new opportunities for learners worldwide.
In this keynote, Dr Guo will also help you to:

•  Understanding the development of AI technology and its impact on the conventional education system

•  How AI-powered tools and platforms can personalise learning experiences, providing tailored content and adaptive assessments

• How you can adopt an AI-Based education approach in your institution

The Digital Learning Paradox: Navigating Technologies Without Losing Direction

In the context of global education in the 2020s, the rapid integration of digital technologies into learning environments has presented both unprecedented opportunities and challenges. As educators and learners navigate this new landscape, the importance of self-regulated learning has become increasingly apparent. More than ever, students need to understand their own learning to make the most of the opportunities that emerging technologies provide.
This keynote explores the nuanced dynamics of technology-enhanced learning, focusing on how digital tools can sometimes mislead learners and the critical role of self-assessment and sound decision-making in ensuring effective learning.
The presentation delves into strategies for balancing student engagement with high-quality learning outcomes, emphasising the application of self-regulated learning techniques. It also highlights design tactics that support students in making informed judgements and decisions within digital learning environments. Furthermore, the significance of self-regulatory feedback is examined as a key factor in enhancing student learning in digital contexts.
By addressing the impact of technology, including artificial intelligence on learning, the discussion centres on practical aspects of navigating digital education. The aim is to equip educators and learners with the necessary tools to foster environments that support critical thinking, adaptability, and informed decision-making. Through this lens, the keynote contributes to the ongoing dialogue on improving learning experiences and outcomes in the digital age, offering insights grounded in the latest research on cognitive and metacognitive mechanisms of learning.
In this keynote, Jason will also help you to:

•  Learn how to balance student engagement and high-quality learning by applying self-regulated learning strategies

•  Discover design tactics that support student judgements and decision-making in their learning with technology

• Understand the importance of the role of self-regulatory feedback in improving student learning in digital environments
