Head's Blog: Embracing Artificial Intelligence

_RMHS Yr 7 Lifestyle 2023__Y2A6347-CR3_-1

Artificial Intelligence is a force that promises to redefine the future, and it is imperative that we as a school align with its trajectory for the benefit of our students.

In this latest blog post, Mr Dwyer shares how Redmaids' High is not just adapting to, but wholeheartedly embracing AI, weaving it into the day-to-day education of our students to enhance learning, inspire innovation and prepare them to be pioneers in the ever-evolving world that awaits them beyond school.

"Engagement with Artificial Intelligence at Redmaids’ High is focused on three distinct but overlapping areas. Allowing students to understand how their learning in any given subject might be augmented through the use of AI is key; we want students to understand that these are tools that can aid and enhance their progress, without replacing the need to think deeply and reflect critically on their part. Highlighting to students what considered use of AI might enable allows for empowerment in the same vein as their use of other tools and resources. Fact-checking and identifying evidence carefully have always been chief among our messaging to students when making use of technology, and we have now added a focus on ensuring they retain their own voice and sense of expression. 

Recent months have seen us develop further the idea of AI as a subject worthy of study on its own terms, not just as a lens through which to view their studies in other disciplines. The evolution of our Creative Technology curriculum in Year 7 will allow students to engage with the ethics and concepts that drive the use of AI in the wider world, as well as develop increasing confidence in their use of it to innovate and work through real-world problems. 

None of this work would be as successful without supporting staff in their understanding and engagement with AI tools. Our Digital Education Panel has been convened to help set up and continue to refine parameters for the safe and effective use of AI in the classroom, as well as identify ways in which workload for colleagues in all areas might be alleviated in the months and years to come."
