Neil Selwyn’s new book on AI and education is now published through Polity Press. The book provides a critical overview of educational developments in AI, robotics and big data – challenging the hype around these technologies leading to a technological reinvention of the ways in which teaching and learning take place. The book considers a range of emerging technologies, such as autonomous classroom robots, intelligent tutoring systems, learning analytics and automated decision-making. In particular, the book highlights the need for nuanced discussions around the capacity of AI to replicate the social, emotional and cognitive qualities of human teachers. Moreover, the book argues for pushing conversations about AI and education into the realm of values, judgements and politics.
