A joint collaboration to reshape the classroom of tomorrow has been launched by NTU and the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), which will examine how technology can be used to develop educational practices to inspire lifelong learning.
Leading NTU’s efforts in this partnership are its National Institute of Education (NIE) and School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCSE).
Researchers will reimagine a classroom where human instructors and AI interact to engage students better and explore how knowledge and skills can be imparted to students more effectively through the use of technology.
The Memorandum of Understanding was signed today at a ceremony at NIE by Professor Louis Phee, NTU Vice President (Innovation & Entrepreneurship) and Dean, College of Engineering; Professor Christine Goh, President’s Chair in Education (Linguistics & Language Education) and Director of NIE; and Professor Lim Keng Hui, Assistant Chief Executive, Science & Engineering Research Council, A*STAR.
The collaboration brings together researchers and academics from NTU and A*STAR to work on education research through projects focusing on the science of learning in education, AI, machine learning and human-artificial cognition, with the aim to help students learn and educators teach more effectively.
