How is your school or college using AI?

The EVR AI Benchmarking Self-Evaluation is a chance to participate in a national benchmarking exercise to evaluate current trends in the use of AI in education.  

The AI Benchmarking Self-Evaluation

Professor Rose Luckin Image

I am Professor Rose Luckin and I would like to invite you to participate in a national benchmarking exercise to evaluate current trends in the use of AI in education. Your perspective counts and all I will need is for you to complete a simple 10-minute self-evaluation.  

In return for your involvement, you will be given free access to a private personalised report card and the final anonymised benchmarking publication.  

I have been working in the field of AI for education for 30 years and have spoken about AI, data, and ethics at hundreds of conferences around the world. I provide advice to foreign and domestic governments, and I am frequently called upon to give evidence on AI at educational Select Committees in the UK.

I firmly believe that AI can bring benefits to education. As a professor at UCL’s Institute of Education and a former school teacher, however, I also believe we need a much clearer idea about what is happening across schools and colleges in order to know how best to help educators safely harness AI’s vast potential. Over the last few months my team and I have collected 1200 responses from educators regarding their feelings towards AI and its uses in the classroom.

 

We find: 

  • Many educators feel that they understand the general concepts of AI, and that they also have an understanding of the potential threats posed by AI systems in an educational setting 

  • But at the same time, they are unsure of how to safeguard against these potential threats, and unsure of how to use the technology in the classroom 

  • Use of AI is often inconsistent and there is currently no audit of its application in education and therefore we simply don’t know what is happening 

 

The feedback from your school or college will contribute to a report published by my company, EDUCATE Ventures Research, summarising the state of AI literacy in UK education. I intend to publish this report in September and to highlight its findings to our partners and colleagues in education and government, so please complete your self-evaluation by clicking on the link below now.

EDUCATE Ventures Research partners with a number of high-profile organisations within education and government and I believe piloting this initiative will help shape the public conversation around AI and safeguarding into practical action concerned with ethics, regulation, and the responsible, safe use of emerging technology for teaching and learning.

Yours faithfully,

Rose Luckin
