Redefining Learning from K to Grey
Wednesday 11 October, 18:00 – 19:00 Online


Join us for an interactive and enlightening exchange which explores the exciting potential AI holds for redefining learning. Our diverse group of panellists from academia to startups, catering for all ages from K12 to adult learning, will come together to provide complementary perspectives on the profound impact of AI on the learning landscape across all age groups.


We will hear views on how AI is reshaping learning needs and delivery formats. From early education to continuous lifelong learning, we will explore how AI’s integration has brought about transformative changes in the way we approach education and adapt to individual learning needs.


We will also discover how AI is revolutionising products and services to unlock personalisation, as well as delve into a discussion about the boundaries and ethical considerations of organisations providing AI-based solutions in education.
