The Higher Education for Good Foundation, in partnership with a wide range of organisations, is hosting Youth Talks on AI from April 8 until May 6, to explore views on the roles and effects of artificial intelligence in learning.

With support from a network of volunteer youth ambassadors and leading experts, young people will have a chance to express their views online, with AI helping translate their insights from multiple languages, and summarising their opinions.

Participants can share what they think on how AI might enhance and disrupt teaching and learning, how they are already using it, what they think the boundaries should be and how to prepare for a future where it will play an increasing role.

The FT will summarise the most important trends and insights in its forthcoming report on AI for Schools, to be published at the end of May.

A recent survey of young people’s views on what should be taught in schools to create the future they seek highlighted almost none of the traditional skills such as science, technology, engineering, maths, social sciences and the humanities.

Instead the respondents focused on the importance of learning how to allow them to live together in harmony, citing qualities such as respect, kindness, solidarity, moral values in general, tolerance, open-mindedness, empathy, acceptance, responsibility, friendship and love.
