AI, Smart Edge & Cloud technologies, connectivity solutions, are all critical edtech technologies, that are considered superpowers to drive education change and accelerate impact for future of learning and work. Also any new technology should be integrated with human-centric approaches as work and learning remain an integral social experiences.

No. When learnt and used responsibility, AI can help students gain more with collective intelligence generated from human-machine partnership.
