One of European Schoolnet's key aims is to support well-timed exchange of ideas and strategies among its members, the policy makers and shapers aiming at transforming education across Europe. Agile Collection of Information is our way to answer the needs of a constantly changing education world.
We applied to education some of the Agile Manifesto ways for better software development. The main ideas of the agile approach are to focus on people and interactions, working activities and approaches, collaboration with stakeholders and responding to change.
For each agile collection of information, European Schoolnet's Steering Committee propose topics that are emergent and in focus of EU countries. To collect and present information about state of the art and current activities around each chosen topic we use surveys, in-depth interviews, literature and desk research in several cycles. Just as agile methodology suggest – do, get feedback, improve, do it again and repeat.Each issue of Agile Collection of Information aims to:
- Identify emergent topics or the most recent policies
- Share evidence to support exchange in education
- Share ideas and "how tos"
- Give a broader context
Artificial Intelligence in Education (AIEd) is one of the currently emerging fields in educational technology. Whilst it has been around for about 30 years with high expectations about its potential, it is still unclear how it can impact on teaching and learning, and how to make pedagogical advantage of it on a broader scale.
The educational community is facing the opportunity and challenge brought by the continuously developing artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, which can potentially and fundamentally change the structure, operation, and governance of educational institutes.
After consultation with the Steering Committee, European Schoolnet conducted the survey about Artificial Intelligence (AI) role in K12 education in 2021.
