Artificial Intelligence and Continuing Teacher Training


Artificial intelligence is currently increasingly present in contemporary society, with its applications increasingly enhancing solutions that have positive and negative impacts, like any technological development.

Processes and solutions based on the use of Artificial Intelligence are constantly developed, optimizing and innovating products and services in various areas of knowledge and even in education.

With a focus on the use of Artificial Intelligence with application in Education, many praises and criticisms are presented and based on their specific reasons.

Therefore, we must focus on oneperspective that educational innovations based on Artificial Intelligence can improve learning results by contributing to equity in access to and enjoyment of education.

We must explore the foundations of Artificial Intelligence, providing reflection and discussion of its potential, uses in education and its ethical and moral standards.

When the objective is to improve the quality of teaching, we cannot forget the role of the teacher, as he, among other skills, stands out in mediating the learning process and in the architecture of the teaching process.

Therefore, in order to improve the quality of teaching, it necessarily involves a continuing teacher training program, covering topics such as innovative methodologies, new technologies, and other topics with a contemporary approach to bullying in the school environment, collaboration and ethics.

Regarding the topic of Artificial Intelligence in Education, we cannot just restrict it to instrumentalist program contents in the continuing education of teachers. We need to systematize thematic success that contextualizes two points: learning with Artificial Intelligence and teaching forArtificial Intelligence.

This way we will not repeat past mistakes, providing teachers and students with tools in the use of technology in the classroom, but leaving aside aspects focused on the critical and reflective look at technology, in particular Artificial Intelligence.

Various benefits of as using AI in education, some are already known, but we also need to pay attention for the use of AI in Education in the educational environment.

Teachers have difficulties when the topic is related for the use of AI, mainly in terms such as algorithmic distortions and their implications, AI and human rights, copyright, etc.

Artificial Intelligence in the classroom, by itself, will make little contribution to the teaching-learning process. It is necessary to establish in the training program a didactic/pedagogical methodology that meets the teacher's expectations, with a focus on the relationship As It isFor AI in education.

We must take advantage of the educational space to promote the development of a creative, critical and reflective citizen, aiming to meet the perspectives of a society constantly in conflict and its needs.
