While artificial intelligence (AI) is not a new concept, it is constantly evolving — particularly within the education landscape. While many of these advancements may be met with concern, thought leaders took the stage at SXSW EDU 2024 this past March to address misconceptions, and potential threats, and to better illustrate how AI can be embraced to enhance the educational experience — especially with so many new tools to work with, the possibilities are endless.

Dive into the latest ideas on AI-driven teaching simulators, instructional coaching, what it means to be “AI literate,” and the intersection between AI and education equity. Hear from Guy Kawasaki from Canva, Kristen DiCerbo from Khan Academy, Shravan Goli from Coursera, and more who share their relationship with AI and what they anticipate is what’s next for AI in the future.

Watch and listen to these AI-focused sessions:
