I found the article attached particularly interesting as it speaks to another direction in which the conversation about AI and its impact on Education can be taken. John seeks to highlight the benefits that AI can bring to the teacher, student, and parents, rather than the often-explored perspective of how AI will encourage plagiarism or cheating or inhibit independent thinking among our students.
I find this even more interesting as I examine the article from the perspective of an educator whose background is rooted in a developing country. Without question, only in a few schools is AI utilized by teachers and students. This is so both at the secondary level and in the teachers’ colleges. My thoughts therefore are centered around how far behind some developing countries are on the “information highway”
What is the level of penetration in other developing countries?
