Artificial Intelligence (AI) has recently become a central focus of public and media attention. Yet, UNESCO has been monitoring the disruptive implications of AI for education as part of its foresight function over the past several years and providing guidance for both policy and practice. The 2019 Beijing Consensus on Artificial Intelligence and Education, in particular, offers guidance and recommendations on harnessing AI technologies to achieve the Education 2030 Agenda. It recognizes “the emergence of a set of AI literacy skills required for effective human–machine collaboration” and recommends to “take institutional actions to enhance AI literacy across all layers of society”. It also considers that while teachers cannot be displaced by machines, it has become critical “dynamically review and define teachers’ roles and required competencies in the context of teacher policies, strengthen teacher training institutions, and develop appropriate capacity-building programmes to prepare teachers to work effectively in AI-rich education settings."
