Knowledge, Learning, Community

This article reprints a press release referencing the recently released Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA) seven principles for AI in education. The principles cover the usual: involve stakeholders, serve student needs, protect privacy, don't blow up the world. What's missing here (and in so many similar initiatives) is any sense of how AI should (or even could) be used to support learning. If there's a real harm caused by AI in education, it may be by retrenching current instructivist practices based on spoonfeeding content to passive students. AI can help with so much more, if only we would use our imaginations.
