Implications of artificial intelligence in learning and education

Submission status
Submission deadline

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionize learning and teaching, introducing a new and unfamiliar type of learner. Such technology is fundamentally a tool for our disposal, and like any tool, we must understand how it works and how best to deploy it.

This special Collection in npj Science of Learning invites research on the functional operation and capability of modern AI, and the consequent implications of its use as a technology to enhance learning and pedagogy. We particularly welcome articles that examine AI's strengths, weaknesses and opportunities in teaching and learning, and those that address ethical, societal, and broader educational considerations associated with its implementation.

We will consider theoretical work and review papers, and give highest priority to empirical studies on human-AI interaction. We will not consider work focused only on AI, e.g; algoritm analysis. Please see here for guidance.
