‘Perhaps we should all stop for a moment and focus not only on making our AI better and more successful but also on the benefit of humanity’. - S. Hawkins, Web Summit, 2017 This international collaborative piece argues for a paradigm shift in our use and understanding of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in education, and in the development of Artificial Intelligence Literacy amongst our learners and professional colleagues. The main premises are: AI can change societal practices, and aid competency and capacity building within society, thereby having a positive impact on education. AI in education can support equity, inclusiveness and lifelong learning, through customisable and tailored learning experiences, while building up future professions and societies according to sustainable development premises. Education ought to equip learners with the knowledge, competency and mindset required to use AI to solve professional and societal challenges and improve day-to-day practices.
