Abstract

In this paper we present arguments supported by research examples for a fundamental shift of emphasis in education and its relation to technology, in particular AItechnology. No longer the ITS-paradigm dominates the field of AI and Education. New educational and pedagogic paradigms are being proposed and investigated, stressing the importance of learning how to learn instead of merely learning domain facts and rules of application. New uses of technology accompany this shift. We present trends and issues in this area exemplified by research projects and characterise three pedagogical scenarios in order to situate different modelling options for AI & Education.
