AI and the digital divide

How do we make AI accessible? If you're already excluded from the system how can you possibly catch up when technology is changing exponentially?
I will be moderating a breakout session on making AI familiar and fun to foster learner motivation at this online workshop for trainers - Creating An AI Literacy Training Model.
These free sessions are run by Digital Collective, a non-profit organisation that aims to tackle the increasing digital divide, that is not only creating an alarming distance to the labour market for individuals in vulnerable situations, but also causing social exclusion as society moves into the digital age.

AI in VET conference

What effect is the emergence of artificial intelligence having on vocational education and training? What does AI mean for the future of training courses and the skills needed by learners? And how does all of this affect educators and trainers?

Join us for the AI in VET conference on Wednesday 8th December, 9:30 - 11 UK time, as we present the results and findings of the Taccle AI project - Improving skills and competences of VET teachers and trainers in the age of Artificial Intelligence.

With guest panelists Sophia Roppertz and Gorka Roman.

During our media literacy Twitter conference #SMILED21 I jokingly suggested that Pontydysgu had enough AI projects in progress to run a conference on its own. We haven't, quite, and a conference is no fun without the opportunity to find out, probe, query and be inspired by what everyone else is up to. So here it is;

#EduAI21 - Bridging the gap between research and practice for AI in education

An unconference style event run on Twitter, #EduAI21 aims to bring researchers and practitioners together, presenting accessible research, information, chalk-face experiences, real life case studies and cutting edge technologies around the use of Artificial Intelligence in (and for) education.

This is free and open to all, anyone with a Twitter account and an idea can contribute.

Presenters will be given a time-slot in which to tweet their 15 tweet presentation. Twitter limits how much text you can use meaning the information should be precise and to the point. Multimedia is highly encouraged and there's a gold star for the best gif. Everyone else is encouraged to grab a hot drink, interact, retweet, like, reply, ask questions and share your own ideas.

Can you present your AI in education case study, research, project, idea or resource in up to 15 tweets? Submit your idea below and we will get back to you with a timeslot and further details.
