‘The most requested guidancetopics were addressing academic malpractice, safe and ethical use, and data privacy and protection.’ (Pg 30)
This makes me want to sing and cry. This is Librarians and our expertise, are we in these conversations at DfE level, with EduTech or others thinking at this level? I was very sad to see no Libraians on the panel for Ai in Education
Of course it is possible that I am working in a small world and have’t raised my head to see who’s doing what. Are we involved and if not how can we have our voices and experience heard?
Surely this is our momnet, the time when we can truely demonstrate the value of a Librarian beyond reading for pleasure. I am lucky in my school to have been asked by the Head to start the school’s working party on AI (Yes, we are a way behind others, but still), my voice is heard among SLT, and all our Key IB staff but this is tiny scale,
How can we make our voice heard in this arena? Maybe I’ll ask GenAI.
