Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of Hope, UNESCO’s Happy Schools Initiative, and the story of a high-school teacher to give you the perfect inspiration for the week!
“If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow.”
– John Dewey
Amidst the launch of multiple chatbots like ChatGPT, Bard, Claude, et cetera, the tech hype around Generative AI seems real. Last week, we asked our readers about the possible impact of AI on education, and 67% felt that AI has the potential to change education but needs regulation. This transformation will have significant implications for the future of education and humanity, leaving us perhaps with no scope for even a peccadillo!
The Global Citizenship Foundation’s June 22-23 Forum event will discuss how to leverage AI for enhanced learning experiences. If you or your colleagues have not yet, you can still register here!
