Topic - AI and the School Library

Leon Furze
Librarians have played an essential role in integrating new technologies, including Artificial Intelligence (AI), into schools. As AI applications become more prevalent, it is important to consider the ethical concerns surrounding their use. In this session, Leon Furze, a former English teacher and PhD student in AI and education, will discuss the ethical concerns around AI, such as bias, environmental impact, academic integrity, copyright and intellectual property, privacy and security, data collection, affect recognition, human labor, and power and hegemony.

Leon will explore the ways in which librarians can support schools in their use of AI, including building ethical understanding, teaching responsible research practices, and guiding the selection and use of AI-powered apps and services.

This presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with Bart Rutherford from Wesley College and Di Ruffles from Melbourne Grammar School and include an opportunity for audience Q & A.

Leon Furze is a PhD student, experienced educator, consultant, and educational writer.

His PhD is focused on Artificial Intelligence in education, and particularly the impact large language models like GPT will have on writing.



A padlet of resources will be created to support this event.
