Chapter 26: The ethics of AI in education
Restricted access

The transition of Artificial Intelligence (AI) from a lab-based science to live human contexts brings into sharp focus many historic, sociocultural biases, inequalities and moral dilemmas. Many questions that have been raised regarding the broader ethics of AI are also relevant for AI in Education (AIED). AIED raises further specific challenges related to the impact of its technologies on users, how such technologies might be used to reinforce or alter the way that we learn and teach, and what we, as a society and individuals, value as outcomes of education. This chapter discusses key ethical dimensions of AI and contextualises them within AIED design and engineering practices to draw connections between the AIED systems we build, the questions about human learning and development we ask, the ethics of the pedagogies we use and the considerations of values that we promote in and through AIED within a wider sociotechnical system.
