How might digital technology and notably smart technologies based on artificial intelligence (AI), learning analytics, robotics, and others transform education? This book explores such question. It focuses on how smart technologies currently change education in the classroom and the management of educational organisations and systems. The book delves into beneficial uses of smart technologies such as learning personalisation, supporting students with special learning needs, and blockchain diploma credentialing. It also considers challenges and areas for further research. The findings offer pathways for teachers, policy makers, and educational institutions to digitalise education while optimising equity and inclusivity.

Personalisation of learning: Towards hybrid human-AI learning technologies

This chapter outlines the research and development of personalised learning in research labs and schools across OECD countries. The state of the art of personalised learning is described using a model of 6 levels of automation of personalised learning that articulates the roles of AI, teachers and learners. This describes how hybrid human-AI solutions combine the strengths of human and artificial intelligence to accomplish personalised learning. Existing learning technologies have a strong focus on diagnosing students’ knowledge and adjusting feedback, tasks and/or the curriculum. Developmental frontiers lie in taking into account a broader range of learner characteristics such as self-regulation, motivation and emotion.
