28h - Transforming Education
The Emerging Technologies in Education category has been chosen because it plays a crucial role in education by enriching and transforming the learning process in innovative and effective ways. These technologies -- artificial intelligence and virtual/augmented reality -- enable deeper and more adaptive personalisation of educational content, providing students with engaging and interactive experiences. In addition, they facilitate access to global educational resources, foster online collaboration, develop essential digital skills, and prepare students for an ever-changing world by equipping them with the skills to meet the challenges of the 21st century in informed and creative ways.

Emerging Technologies for Education
Challenge and goals
The challenge is about exploring the integration of Artificial Intelligence and Virtual/Augmented Reality in the educational field, specifically in higher education. You can choose one of the following:
Enrich and enhance class sessions
What do you propose so that university students have experiences in dynamic and motivating, challenging classes that allow them to have active, collaborative learning, and that is a propitious space to confront positions and ideas that put their critical judgment into practice? How would you like to learn in your courses using these technological tools?
Improve and automate student evaluation methods
Students are evaluated throughout the semester to demonstrate their learning; how do you imagine the evaluations using these tools? They can make proposals for students who take face-to-face, hybrid courses (courses with face-to-face sessions and distance sessions) and/or completely distance courses.
Participants must prepare a project related to the challenge in one of the two topics, the classes or the evaluations, in order for their proposal to be a contribution to the integration of AI and/or VR/AR in higher education.
