“AI is a technology like none of us have ever seen, and none of us can truly say where it’s going. But we do know this: Technology is never good or bad. It’s what we do with the technology that matters.“
-Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce
In our newsletter this week we are focusing on introducing the potential of leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Higher Education, integrating AI-powered tools into teaching methods, and examples of fostering a culture of technological literacy in the classroom. Next week we will focus on the implementation of AI technology in higher education teaching. Ultimately by doing so, educators can harness the power of AI to enhance the learning experience and better prepare their students for the challenges of the 21st century.
