By embracing AI innovations while upholding principles of equity,<br>inclusivity, and ethical governance, Asian nations can forge a more resilient and equitable<br>educational landscape. The suggested framework encompasses inputs, outputs, and AI converters,<br>prioritizing educational access and completion, particularly in low- and lower-middle-income<br>countries, and emphasizing higher education expansion and research in higher-income nations.<br>Outputs include enhanced employability, job creation, and productivity, whereas concerns revolve<br>around overreliance on technology, bias, digital divide, and job displacement. Policy implications<br>highlight the need for awareness campaigns, policy reforms, infrastructure investment, and<br>partnerships to maximize AI benefits while mitigating potential challenges. However, the study’s<br>conceptual framework lacks a specific methodology, warranting the development of robust research<br>methods tailored to investigate AI’s roles in promoting education for sustainable development. This<br>initial study serves as a foundation for future research endeavors in this burgeoning field.</p> 2024-04-18T00:00:00-07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Masatoshi Hara NAVIGATING THE INTERSECTION OF AI IN EDUCATION: DIFFERENTIATED ASSESSMENTS AS A PEDAGOGICAL REFORM 2024-04-18T07:28:29-07:00 Mary Cruz Bojan Kostadinovic Anna Provodnikova <p>The 21st century with the intersection of AI and Education offers great opportunities to educators and learners.<br>This changing scenario can be navigated with new and varied pedagogical reforms. Technology 4.0 should bring out fast paced educational reforms. The research primarily focussed on a differentiated assessment system so that the creative and critical thinking can be evaluated. This assessment was learner centric rather than teacher centric; it explored a novel method of quantifying skill progress rather than route memorisation. This research aimed to develop creative thinking in graduates by implementing a differentiated assessment pattern based on the ACER creative thinking framework. The age of rapid automation and AI poses a threat to low-skilled labour; therefore educational institutions must focus more on developing skills that machines cannot replicate. The exploratory case study over a longitudinal period of six months concluded that a concept called as flip question paper, in the form of science fiction writing and white paper projects develop higher-order thinking skills in graduate learners. Though the variance in strengths of learners is a well-established fact most assessments sill follow a standardised pattern rather than differentiated . This study was also able to quantify data from the assessment so that transcripts can have creative and critical thinking mapped along with domain knowledge</p> 2024-04-18T00:00:00-07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Mary Cruz, Bojan Kostadinovic, Anna Provodnikova UNDERSTANDING THE POTENTIAL IMPACT OF AI-POWERED CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT ON STUDENT ENGAGMENT, AND OVERALL LEARNING OUTCOMES 2024-04-18T07:25:39-07:00 JVS Praveen jvs.praveen´ <p>Integrating artificial intelligence (AI) technology into classroom management systems has the potential to revolutionize student engagement and improve overall learning outcomes.
