Workshop on digitalization and artificial intelligence in education, May 2nd

The CICERO Learning Network organizes a workshop on joint actions for digitalization and artificial intelligence in education on May 2nd, 2018. It aims to gather companies, researchers and teachers together to investigate how people of all ages utilize technology that supports learning, and to find new ways of collaboration.

The Finnish education system is one of the best in the world, if not the best. However, we are in danger of lagging behind many other countries in the ways we develop and utilize new methods and devices in the digital environment, in which artificial intelligence plays a central role in learning environments and services.

The workshop welcomes presentation proposals across a variety of categories for research and product development. We seek for novel processes and devices as well as companies that have interest towards research and empirical evaluation of approaches to improve understanding in formal and informal learning environments. Accepted proposals are allotted 5-10 minutes for presentation at the workshop, as well as time for discussion in groups. Poster presentations are also welcomed for the joint lunch and poster session.
Max. 1 page proposals for presentations can be submitted for either oral or poster presentations using the online form here (dl April 19th).

In the workshop, we foster discussion to explore new ways of collaboration among stakeholders by offering several ways to engage. After the workshop we will promote follow-up seminars and meetings to apply for co-creation and co-innovation projects in concert with Business Finland.
Register for the workshop using the online form here (dl April 24th).
The workshop is held at the University of Helsinki Minerva Plaza (Siltavuorenpenger 5A).
