Artificial intelligence (AI) has received widespread interest in its applications for education. UNESCO has highlighted the potential of AI in addressing its Education 2030 Agenda (Sustainable Development Goal 4), and in August 2023, the Department for Education ran an open consultation on generative AI in education. AI can be used to provide individualised learning (such as computer adaptive tests that adjust to pupil competencies) and assist decision making (such as marking/assessment and admissions). Further, AI could increase workforce capacity by reducing administrative burdens. However, there are also potential risks of AI use in education, (including bias, lack of transparency, privacy concerns) and barriers (including costs and lack of skills/understanding in local authorities and the education workforce).
This POSTnote will outline current uses of AI for education delivery and assessment in the UK, and review evidence for opportunities and challenges, drawing insight from international developments. It will also consider how people are taught about AI under the national curriculum, and students’ use of AI.
