Artificial Intelligence and the Futures of Learning


In December 2020, UNESCO organized the International Forum on AI and the Futures of Education'Developing Competencies for the AI Era' and produced a synthesis report. UNESCO carried out two surveys on government-approved AI curriculum targeting UNESCO Member States and non-governmental organizations, which provide AI curricula. The results of these surveys will inform the development of a guiding framework on AI competencies. UNESCO launched a call for applications on the use of AI to support education during the COVID-19 pandemic by non-governmental agencies and a survey for UNESCO Member States. The results of this exercise will inform a report on the main areas of AI use in education and help examine the effectiveness of these tools in supporting education during and beyond the COVID-19 learning crisis.
