Artificial Intelligence Education: The Challenges of Educational Redundancy 

Education is the primary form of systematic guidance. It follows specific directions, adopts particular techniques, and aims to shape active citizens who will support the social system and contribute to its continuity. In this context, education reflects and represents the needs, capabilities, character, and will of society. The ideology, economy, and cultural identity of each society influence education by revising its priorities, introducing new ones, redefining existing ones, and, most importantly, identifying the educational system—both formal and informal—as a field for political practice, understood here as tactics.

Speaking in practical terms, we observe that society and education are in a continuous interplay. Education mirrors the characteristics and aspirations of society, while society leverages the educational space as a field for implementing trends and orientations that shape young individuals and future citizens. The role of educators, their relationship with students, the formation of their personal theories, their scientific training and development, the evaluation process, the dynamics of school factors, the tools involved in teaching and learning processes, the relevant legislative framework, and the social context all contribute to the complexity of the educational institution, which is often challenging to manage.”

The inherently complex nature of today’s education is further compounded by the utilization of digital technologies and, more specifically, artificial intelligence. These elements create a new environment for teaching and learning, prompting reflections and diverse considerations regarding their adoption, boundaries, and prospects. This presentation is oriented towards the following objectives:

  • Conceptual Definition: To clarify the use of digital technologies and artificial intelligence within the field of education.
  • Boundaries Exploration: To highlight the limitations of digital technologies and artificial intelligence in education.
  • Citizen Profile: To contemplate the type of citizen that can be shaped through the utilization of digital technologies and artificial intelligence in education.
  • Distinguishing Knowledge and Skills: To differentiate between the concepts of knowledge and skills.
  • Humanistic Perspective: To emphasize the need for a humanistic approach in education.

Problematic Aspects: To present the challenges arising from the use of digital technologies and artificial intelligence in education.
