The emergence of AI in education, under discussion at WISE Summit

The world’s leading experts in the field of education gathered in Doha for the eleventh World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) on the past 28 and 29 November. Nieves Segovia, president of SEK Education Group, and Alejandro Díaz Garreta, director of the Global Education Forum, were invited as speakers

Also participating in various round tables and panels were representatives from SEK Education Group such as Alejandro Delso, Director of Strategy and Innovation; Guillermo Delso, Director of Learning Projects and Business Analysis; Héctor Escamilla, rector of Camilo José Cela University; or Ignacio Sell, Director of the UCJC Student Sfera Experience Programme.

The meeting took place at the Qatar National Convention Centre, in the city of Doha, and served as a platform for the exchange of ideas, to share experiences and to search for innovative solutions to current educational challenges. The event was attended by approximately 2,000 experts and those interested in education from various sectors and from over 100 different countries.

This year, the global education conference, organised by the Qatar Foundation, explored the theme of “Creative Fluidity: Human Flourishing in the Age of AI”. As discussed during the event, the emergence of Artificial Intelligence challenges our traditional understanding of creativity and raises many questions about the future of education in the world.

This edition of the WISE Summit tackled issues that are reshaping the educational landscape, including the importance of computer literacy, the promise of personalised learning for all, new pedagogical approaches integrated in AI that enhance the creative potential of students and teachers, and issues of equity and values integrated into the design, dissemination and implementation of emerging technologies for education worldwide.

These debates featured the participation of various representatives from SEK Education Group, who showcased projects from Camilo José Cela University and the Global Education Forum (GEF) proposing solutions for an ever-evolving world.

The emergence of AI in education, under discussion at WISE

Nieves Segovia, Héctor Escamilla and Alejandro Díaz spoke at a round table discussion entitled University Presidents’ Roundtable: Navigating the AI Transformation in Higher Education, in which they participated in a panel on Artificial Intelligence and its current impact on education.

Among other issues, the debate focused on how AI has the potential to revolutionise teaching and learning, improve institutional efficiency and increase accessibility, benefiting both students and educators. However, potential negative repercussions were also mentioned, such as job displacement, privacy issues, biases and impartiality, excessive reliance on technology, inequality, and ethical considerations.

Furthermore, the roundtable participants discussed the ways in which effective leadership helps navigate this transformation as a way to address the challenges and capitalise on the opportunities that AI presents to improve teaching, research and administration.

Meanwhile, Guillermo Delso participated in a session on Global Skills and Local Needs in The Age of AI, in which ideas were shared on skill development solutions for greater equity and access to education in various geographical and socioeconomic contexts.

The current state of education in the world

During the rest of the event, issues in education that still remain unresolved were highlighted, such as the shortage of teachers, limited access to learning among vulnerable populations, and the disconnect between higher education and the needs of the labour market. There was also discussion about the advantages of using artificial intelligence in education, adapting it according to individual needs, as well as AI’s ability to accelerate learning experiences.

The emergence of AI brings with it many questions and this edition of the WISE Summit sought to answer some of them as well as tackling issues that are reshaping the educational landscape, including the importance of computer literacy, the promise of personalised learning for all, new pedagogical approaches integrated in AI that enhance the creative potential of students and teachers, and issues of equity and values integrated into the design, dissemination and implementation of emerging technologies for education worldwide.

Ignacio Sell participated in a panel focused on sharing the methodology used in the formation of the SFERA Experience programme, a collaborative space for social innovation that brings together students from various disciplines of Ibero-American universities to address social and environmental challenges at a local and global level.

The main objective of this workshop, titled Empowering Humans: SFERA Unlocking Creativity for a Transformative Teaching Experience in the Age of AI, was to promote creativity and human values as fundamental tools to face the challenges arising from the integration of artificial intelligence in education.
