Artificial Intelligence and Education (AI&ED): Possibilities, Pedagogies and Risks

There has been considerable interest internationally in how Artificial Intelligence and related areas can be applied and taught in schools, higher education, and lifelong learning settings. The extent to which such new technologies can and should have an impact, particularly in terms of their relevance to developing teachers’ pedagogical practice, remains contested and debated, mirroring but extending prior debates on the place of earlier technologies in education. Uses of technology broadly classified under the umbrella of Artificial Intelligence may have the capacity to bring real benefits to teachers, schools and ultimately to children and students. Yet we are still exploring what these benefits might be, how technology can interact with curriculum, pedagogy and assessment, and how we deal with challenges around issues such as privacy, surveillance, student voice and agency, among many others.

The aim of this special issue is to provide a forum for scholars who are involved in:

  • research in the application of Artificial Intelligence technologies in educational and lifelong learning settings, with a focus on methods related to machine learning, natural language processing, big data, learning analytics and other cognate areas;
  • research into the teaching of Artificial Intelligence in educational and lifelong learning settings; and
  • critical studies of the application and teaching of Artificial Intelligence technologies in educational and lifelong learning settings.

We aim to publish a collection of articles, including Original Research Articles and Review Articles (which could be narrative or systematic in character), on these topics. To that end, we invite:

  • Reports of cutting-edge research into the application or teaching of Artificial Intelligence in educational or lifelong learning contexts, and its potential or actual impact on practice and pedagogy, including consideration of impacts on student outcomes using single or varied measures as well as in relation to wider considerations - such as school culture and organisation, social interaction in learning, and engagement; and
  • Critical reflections on challenges, complexities and debates in relation to issues of ethics, privacy, surveillance and student (and / or parental) voice and agency.

Submission Instructions

We welcome Original Research Articles and Review Articles on the broad topic of Artificial Intelligence and Education.

Research articles that report on empirical studies are welcomed. These can be quantitative or qualitative in nature, or involve mixed or multiple methods. Articles should focus on the implications of results for pedagogy and practice, and where possible should include reports on process or usability evaluation, and reports on teacher, student and parental experience and perspective. Research articles should address wider issues of pedagogy and ethics as noted as well as reporting purely on outcomes. Technical elements including the use of complex statistics and analyses should be included as appropriate, as should discussions of the implementation of platform, software and hardware. However, this should be in the context of illuminating implications for pedagogy and practice, as well as potentially considering issues of usability, technology acceptance and user experience.

Review articles should consider the wider issues raised by the application and teaching of Artificial Intelligence technologies in educational and lifelong learning settings, including both the technological and human dimensions, and should adopt an international lens.

When submitting your article through ScholarOne, please choose “Special Issue” and “Artificial Intelligence and Education (AI&ED): Possibilities, Pedagogies and Risks”.

The SI’s expected publication date is September 2023.
