‘AI in Education’ is Britain’s first, and a globally pioneering, cross-sector body committed to ensuring AI benefits everyone involved in education – from students (especially the most vulnerable), teachers and governors to parents and the wider society.

Professor Jo-Anne Baird, Director of the Oxford University Centre for Educational Assessment (OUCEA) sits on the Advisory Panel, which is made up of leading figures from academic life, universities and UK tech companies. The Panel will scrutinise and recommend technical pathways and products to the expert panel for trial and evaluation in schools.

Professor Baird said: “Generative AI has been a game-changer and we are about to witness its impact on education and assessment.  I am pleased to be working on this important initiative which will look strategically at the needs of education coming before the technology.”

AI in Education launched this week with a website offering advice, resources and case studies for those working in all educational settings.
