The applications of AI and study data in education are taking off, but the question is whether this reduces or increases equity among students. This week, a national track was launched to develop a vision on this issue. What is the possible impact of AI on equity? We want to discover and translate answers into practical advice for educational institutions in secondary vocational, higher vocational, and university education.  

Npuls has asked the Learning Technology & Analytics lectorate at The Hague University of Applied Sciences to organize this research project. We are working together with colleagues from all three branches of further education: Irene Eegdeman and Christian de Kraker (mbo), Erdinç Saçan (hbo), and Anouschka van Leeuwen (wo). Theo Bakker, the Learning Technology & Analytics Professor, coordinates the research.

Contribute to a vision of AI and opportunity equality 

Before the summer, we will collect what is already known and what ideas are alive in the field. To do so, we will conduct a literature study, do desk research, and conduct interviews with experts. We will also organize several sessions with education colleagues. The vision will be delivered in the autumn.

Would you like to contribute yourself? Then fill in the form: Inventory Vision AI, data, and equity in education (in Dutch).
