About The Webinar

Understanding the DfE Position on Generative AI | Secondary

For: Leaders, teachers, teaching assistants 

Aim: This webinar will provide you with insight into how the DfE view the use of generative artificial intelligence (AI), such as ChatGPT or Google Bard, in education, including the opportunities and risks that it brings and what the technology means for staff and pupils. 

Rationale: On 29 March 2023, the DfE published a departmental statement outlining its position on the use of generative AI in the education sector. It’s the first document the DfE has published that looks at how AI could be used in schools and what kind of impact it could have on areas such as classroom practice and formal assessments.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding what generative AI is, what benefits these programmes can bring and what limitations to be aware of

  • Recognising how generative AI can be used by staff to help develop their practice, including the potential to reduce workload and free-up time

  • Identifying ways in which generative AI can be used to help develop pupil’s knowledge and skills for the future

  • Realising the importance of schools ensuring they are taking reasonable steps to prevent malpractice as part of formal assessments and ensuring the integrity of qualifications

  • Understanding the risks associated with generative AI and what measures can be taken to help protect children from harm
