EThics and Artificial Intelligence



target Groups:


Welcome to the Ethics and Artificial Intelligence Collaborative Project. Artificial intelligence (AI) is all around us, offering an exciting innovative way for students and teachers to explore the world. As AI becomes increasingly more common in technology applications, we need to better understand how it may affect our lives. Across all stages of AI development applying an ethical lens helps us ensure that AI is used for good and benefits all people, not disadvantaging or causing harm to particular groups. While AI has its benefits, it also has its challenges and issues. It is important to predict and analyse implications of these types of emerging technologies to avoid harmful or misuse of AI. The course will use practical, freely available, online AI tools to enable students to build and test AI models to better understand machine learning, a subset of AI. Students will participate in this short course to learn about AI. After completing the course they will be able to apply their knowledge to a design challenge.

Designed by Education Service Australia, this PASS Student Learning Activity will use the Connect-Understand-Act teaching framework and relevant resources to engage your students in real-world STEM education.

The short course will prepare students for an interactive online Youth Forum with PNG and Australian schools on the ethics of AI, led by Chris Buswell. Watch the below video to learn more about the Youth Forum. 


The Ethics and Artificial Intelligence short course is designed and developed by Martin Richards at Education Services Australia. Martin Richards is the Content Manager of the Digital Technologies (DT) Hub at Education Services Australia and leads the development of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) DT Hub supporting resources. He has presented workshops on ways to implement AI in the classroom, written AI lesson plans, and created videos explaining AI. In a previous life, Martin was a teacher. 

The Ethics and Artificial Intelligence Youth Forum is designed and facilitated by Chris Buswell, Director of STEM at AIS International. Chris will be there to facilitate, guide and support you throughout your youth forum journey. 

Chris is a multi-award winning EdTech and STEM education leader named the Showcase Queensland Teacher of the Year in 2019, and awarded a Commonwealth Bank Australia Teaching Fellowship in 2020. Chris is currently working as the Director of STEM at the brand-new K- 12 Australian International School in Dubai, whereby helping build the foundations of an innovative and world class school from the ground up, as part of the dual Education Queensland and KHDA systems.

Chris's experience extends globally as a school team leader, lead designer and presenter, as part of the PNGAus Secondary Schools initiative. Chris has previously worked as a STEM Specialist for Australia Awards, developing STEM capacity and communities of practice as part of the blended STEM Nau pilot in the higher education sector in PNG. As part of this commitment to building STEM capacity and long-term relationships, Chris has continued to volunteer his time to mentor those PNG lead educators that have provided him with a deep insight into traditional education and culture.
