I just posted on AI Ethics and Policy to my blog as a reference for some of the work we are doing on campus around AI and for our AI courses. It is not just academic papers but also tools for thinking about how ed tech in general is rolled out. It is important to think about whose voices get heard in these decisions and how we gather them together. If you have a reading or resource around AI, ethics, and policy that you feel is essential, I would love to see it. Thanks!

@Downes I like this a lot. I think this is good work, but to be a true futurist article it needs more monetizable breathless hyperbole - maybe ChatGPT could help with that. 😃

I haven't seen much in the way of education predictions for 2024 except for the all too predictable corporate sales pitches. I think COVID and AI may have something to do with that: geoffcain.com/blog/edu-predict

One of the problems with asking companies "Can that data be connected back to the students themselves?" is that the algorithms that can correlate large, seemingly unrelated data are now so complex that the companies can always say "no" and still mean "yes." Beware "data analytics partners"!

The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men, but that men will begin to think like computers.
