ADAPT Citizens' Think-In: 'AI in the virtual classroom'

ADAPT invites you to a Citizens’ Think-In to discuss how Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be used to improve the experience of online classrooms, 30 November from 4.00-5.45pm


During the pandemic, many schools and universities were forced to quickly move all their teaching online. Classrooms became virtual. Every teacher and student required a camera, a microphone, and a computer to join their classes through apps like Zoom.

It became very difficult for teachers to tell if their students were engaged as many decided to keep their cameras and microphones turned off. But what if there was a new AI feature on Zoom that could help teachers to “read a room”....

RoomReader is an SFI Covid Rapid Response project exploring ways and implications of using AI to identify student engagement during online classes. This type of technology could help teachers respond to their students, but just because we CAN do something, does it mean we SHOULD

Event outline:

  • Join our experts for a quick conversation on what the future of virtual classrooms could look like 
  • Then participate in a break out discussion, where you can share your opinion on the future of AI and teaching
