This learning event is right for you if you are making decisions about using or purchasing Educational Technology products


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasingly applied in Educational Technology (EdTech) products so it is important to understand what it is, how it is being used and how to evaluate those products.

This short session will give a brief overview of AI and we will look at some examples of products that apply it.

You will learn the basics of how to evaluate products that incorporate AI by using a template that guides you through the criteria to consider. The template addresses the criteria of Fairness, Accountability, Trust & Ethics (FATE). The template is also applicable to other non-AI EdTech products.

"Education has no limits, and AI can help to eliminate boundaries."

Alyssa Johnson, Feb 2019 (
