Chapter 6: AI in schools and universities: mapping central debates through enthusiasms and concerns
Restricted access

This chapter maps ongoing debates on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in schools and universities to highlight the main enthusiasms and concerns these debates have sparked amongst the scholars of critical data studies, media and communication, and educational sciences. Our analysis is framed around a wider notion of the “school” in order to cover thematic debates about changes in learning, teaching, teacher-student relationships, and administrative matters. Hence, the first part of the chapter covers recent progress made in student-facing AI solutions, developments in teachers’ AI tools and perceptions of implementing AI in educational settings, and how AI is increasingly used in education management. In the second part, we balance the progress discourse of AI with the equally, if not more, important concerns that the implementation of different AI solutions raises in educational settings.
