Call for Papers for the Special Issue on AI in Education
The special issue guest editors (Professor Hannele Niemi, University of Helsinki; Professor Liu Jia, Beijing Normal Univeristy; Professor Keith Devlin, Stanford University) welcome commentaries on the topic of “Equity and Quality of Learning in a Global Digital World: Using 21st Century Intelligent Technology Tools in Education”
Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the world. It impacts societies, organizations, work, and education, and it is becoming more and more a part of everyday life. This situation offers enormous opportunities to expand educational settings for learning in and beyond the traditional classroom, but it also requires a significant investment in lifelong learning so that all levels of education can take the changing technology into account.
Chinese, American and Finnish governments have been paying attention on applying Intelligent Technology Tools in education. Our discussion has been grounded in the strategic cooperation between Chinese, American and Finnish universities to bring education into the forefront of AI research. Our aim is to draw on multidisciplinary research, e.g. psychology and technology, to use AI as a significant opportunity to ensure high-quality education for all and change the learning crisis into quality learning at both the local and global level.
