Abstract:

For the past few years, technology-driven transformations have rapidly introduced a new ecosystem shaped by unprecedented challenges. The advances created by the Internet first, followed by the evolving nature of digital technologies, have led to an increasing convergence between the online and the offline components of our societies. Furthermore, the potential of using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning across every field, has raised new ethical concerns that require a shift of perspective for its study and analysis.

The educational arena is also affected by those challenges. Since the early days of the Internet and digitization, the wide expansion of MOOCs along with the emergence of Virtual Learning Environments, created the initial pillars for integrating digital technologies across education. The latest allowed educational institutions to collect large amounts of data from students, teachers and their practices, to evaluate and assess their progress in real time and -in some cases- to provide personalized answers to specific needs. The use of approaches as Learning Analytics or Educational Data Mining represent early examples in the field. However in this context, it is relevant to consider if educational and research institutions are prepared for entering an era where the use of massive amounts of data is already an established practice, and more importantly, if they are preparing for the use and integration of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in education. The challenges behind this lie on the ethical implications of technology-driven transformations beyond privacy and data protection, along with the need to consider the future perspectives that justify a new ethical approach.

Since the early 2000, Uruguay has developed a nation-wide interinstitutional strategy for effectively integrating digital technologies across every area of society. The first action focused in the development and implementation of Plan Ceibal; the digital inclusion programme in the country. Throughout its 13 years of existence, the programme has guaranteed access to digital technologies while also moving beyond that; creating platforms, VLEs, management systems, adaptive platforms among many others. This new context presents relevant opportunities for using massive data for understanding and improving learning and teaching practices, but has required to study and assess the interrelation between education, ethics and technology-driven transformations in the areas of Artificial Intelligence; Data Governance, transparency and responsibility, as well as the increasing convergence between society and digital technologies.
