Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Education: Transforming Teaching and Learning


Artificial Intelligence (AI) can potentially revolutionize various aspects of society, including education. With its ability to analyze large amounts of data and learn from it, AI can enhance the effectiveness of teaching and learning, increase efficiency, and provide personalized education to learners, from intelligent tutoring systems and adaptive learning platforms to chatbots. Virtual assistants, and ChatGPT, AI-based technologies, are transforming the learning and educational landscape.

Integrating AI in education can improve student outcomes, increase access to education, provide more personalized learning experiences, and promote lifelong learning for all. However, AI has ethical, social, political, cultural, legal, and economic challenges; and raises concerns about data privacy, equity, biases, ethics, safety, transparency, and the role of human teachers or educators in the classroom. This topic is of utmost importance as AI can shape the future of education, impacting the workforce, economy, and society. In this context, it is crucial to understand AI's opportunities and challenges in education to maximize the benefits and minimize the potential risks or harms to individuals and communities. 

This special issue focuses on Artificial Intelligence in Education covering K-12 to higher education. This issue draws attention to how AI is transforming teaching and learning. This issue's editors are interested in original papers investigating AI in teaching and learning from single or interdisciplinary perspectives, such as information science, education, learning sciences, humanities, psychology, computer science, and artificial intelligence.

The editors of this special issue will welcome research on fundamental theories, empirical investigations, innovative systems, and influential applications of AI in education.
