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.

Artificial intelligence in education: Bringing it all together

Artificial intelligence has led to a generation of technologies in education – for use in classrooms and by school systems more broadly – with considerable potential to bring education forward. This chapter provides a broad overview of the technologies currently being used, their core applications, and their potential going forward. The chapter also provides definitions of some of the key terms that will be used throughout this book. It concludes with a discussion of the potentials that may be achieved if these technologies are integrated, the shifts in thinking about supporting learners through one-on-one learning experiences to influencing systems more broadly, and other key directions for R&D and policy in the future.
