Driven by a tech-industry vision of rural economic revival, Wyoming is requiring all of its K-12 public schools to offer computer science. Recently past legislation is intended to wean Wyoming off its heavy reliance on the oil, gas, and coal industries and curb the flow of young people leaving for better jobs. Statewide curricular reforms will expand access to computer science to all K-12 public schools. Microsoft and the state Department of Education plan to work together to provide computer science training for at least one teacher in every Wyoming school.
There are a number of ethical concerns raised by education technology, and in particular by the use of AI as a teaching tool. Here are guidelines that can help to overcome these concerns. It is optimistic to note that ethical AI is not only possible but is being widely embraced.
In the last few years, the country’s investment in AI-enabled teaching and learning has exploded. Tech giants, startups, and education incumbents have all jumped in. Tens of millions of students now use some form of AI to learn—whether through extracurricular tutoring programs like Squirrel’s, through digital learning platforms like 17ZuoYe, or even in their main classrooms. It’s the world’s biggest experiment on AI in education, and no one can predict the outcome.
A very recent study published in « Nature » focuses on one of the learning agents that we tend to forget when it comes to helping students learn better: their mindset.
Researchers examined the benefits of a growth mindset and its impact on students’ academic success. The other finding emphasizes the crucial role played by schools with highly supportive peer norms to reinforce this increase in students’ achievements.
The global education technology market share crossed $17.7 billion in revenue in 2017 and is expected to grow to $40.9 billion by 2022, yet many edtech companies don’t make it. The trick is to sell the business before it fails. There are many reasons for a founder to sell the company and move on. It might be a difficult decision, but it may also be the beginning of a new edtech adventure.
