The 15th ASEF ClassNet Conference (#ASEFClassNet15) is planned to take place from 25-29 November 2019 in Tokyo, Japan, a country that is globally recognised as a leading hub for the invention of AI based technologies and research. The conference will focus on the theme, “Education for Sustainable Development: The Role of Teacher in the Era of AI” (working title) and will address 3 key questions:

  1. What kind of partnerships are needed to promote ESD?
  2. What kind of roles are teachers required to play in classrooms to transform teaching and learning practices for ESD with the help of AI?
  3. What are the key challenges of implementing AI in learning environments?

ASEF ClassNet15 will facilitate a robust dialogue on the role of teachers and AI for ESD by providing a multi stakeholder platform for secondary/high schools and vocational school teachers, researchers, policy makers and EdTech leaders to:

  • Raise awareness of the topic “Education for Sustainable Development (ESD): The Role of Teacher” as an integrative element in teaching and learning in secondary, high, and vocational school education, through case-studies and practical tools
  • Encourage schools to join an active Asia-Europe network and to initiate collaboration and support for creating holistic and timely relevant future learning environments
  • Gather feedback from teachers to suggest policy recommendations to education policy makers and governments to integrate ESD into curricula with the help of AI tools.
More information on the upcoming conference and the open call for applications will be launched at the second half of 2019.
