The Learning Future headed up by Louka Parry recently partnered with The Learning Network to launch an action research around the use of AI Tools to enhance learning design in Australian schools. Lutheran Education was offered 10 places to enrol in this program led by Louka Parry and Anne Knock to conduct some action research around two selected AI tools that have been developed with this purpose in mind. We kicked off last Thursday afternoon and will continue to meet each Thursday for the next 6 weeks as we delve into some of the big questions around AI and it’s use in Education as well as trialling the use of the two tools for learning design by jumping in and having a go!
There is much discussion and debate about what role generative AI might have or should have in Education both within our Australian context and across the world. There are certainly many ethical considerations such as who is being left out, what bias is sits behind generative tools. The purpose of this program is to investigate the Generative AI field not with the lens of Avoidance but with the lens of Embracing with Discernment. The four main tools that the group will be engaging with across the program are Roam, MagicSchool, Qualie and Eduaide.
The Role of the teacher has been and will continue to change as technology advances. One of the questions that we will be considering in this forum is, How might we use education to enhance human experience? Another is, How might we ethically incorporate advancing technologies into Education with discernment. The draft framework for generative AI use in schools has already been developed at Government level and is in it’s consultation phase. Our stakeholders will be expecting us to develop an opinion and policies in this area, I will be attending a policy development day at ISV in the coming weeks and will continue to learn and share relevant information across our sites and communities.
