This week I had the pleasure and privilege to speak to many international school leaders at the ECIS Leadership Conference in Düsseldorf about AI in Education. The theme of the conference was “Culture and Change” and it was an inspiring and engaging opportunity to connect (and reconnect) with really thoughtful school leaders. Huge thanks to ECIS for organising this, and for the opportunity to share.
This was a pre-dinner speech, and I promised a screencast of the slides for participants. I sound pretty tired in the recording, because I’m wiped out, and have expanded on the slides to unpack a few ideas.
I wonder what this presentation would look like a year from now. Apologies for some dodgy sound-mixing with a couple of videos in the demonstrations.
