Rishi Sunak announced CHILDREN would get planned school lessons through artificial intelligence.
The Prime Minister wants to use the controversial technology to make teachers’ work easier.
He will place a “personalized AI lesson planning assistant” in every classroom.
Mr Sunak will today announce £2 million funding for the Oak National Academy online hub.
AI-supported teaching materials are being created.
Thousands of schools are already using tests and lesson plans created as part of a pilot project.
Mr Sunak said: “AI has extraordinary potential to transform our education system for the better – with significant benefits for teachers and students.”
“Oak National Academy’s work to use AI to make teachers’ jobs easier is a perfect example of the revolutionary benefits this technology can bring.”
But the head of the teachers’ union, Geoff Barton, questioned whether this was a wise use of taxpayer money.
The head of the Association of School and College Leaders said: “Schools and colleges are struggling to stay afloat due to government underfunding. They deserve clarity on how this money is being spent.”
