NEWS & EVENTSMOBILE LEARNING WEEK 2019: CALL FOR PROPOSAL OPEN. UNESCO and its confirmed partners - the International Telecommunication Union and the Profuturo Foundation - will convene a special edition of Mobile Learning Week under the theme ‘Augmented human intelligence and humanity’ from 4 to 8 March 2019. Artificial Intelligence has the potential to accelerate the process of achieving SDG 4. It promises to reduce barriers to access, analyse learning patterns and optimise learning processes with a view to improve learning outcomes. On the other hand, the penetration of AI in education comes with concerns related to ethics, security and human rights. Without policy intervention, the commercial deployment of AI will also further exacerbate digital divides and deepen existing income and learning inequalities, as marginalised and disadvantaged groups are more likely to be excluded from AI-powered education. This new edition will examine how the international educational community, governments, private companies, civil society organizations and other stakeholders can join forces to: *ensure inclusive and equitable use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in education; *leverage AI to enhance education and learning; *promote skills development for jobs and life in the AI era; and *safeguard transparent and auditable use of education data. UNESCO is now calling for proposals on the participation of Workshop and Symposium sessions during Mobile Learning Week under the four subthemes mentioned above.
