Artificial Intelligence in Education – Pilot Project for Schools
The National Literacy Agency has teamed up with the Centre for Literacy of the University of Malta and the Malta Digital Innovation Agency to run a project using Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Education. The project: AI puppets for Literacy Education is in line with the National Strategy and Vision for AI in Malta 2030. The main purpose of this project is to develop and promote AI in education projects with children (8 to 10 year-olds), educators and parents.
The project seeks to demonstrate what is within the realm of possibilities using AI during the Gost il-Qari/Reading for Pleasure programme. A number of learning scenarios for the use of AI Puppets during shared reading sessions have been planned and developed. Mini-computers called microbits and laptops are being used to demonstrate machine learning. The project, which includes language and literacy tasks and games involving speech and text recognition, is being piloted at the Hamrun GP primary school.

Have a look at this video and if you think you can make a difference please like and share it with your friends. So join us…let’s redesign fashion!

IMPATT – Encouraging young people to participate in local and national decision making
The Directorate for Learning and Assessment Programmes in partnership with the Maltese National Commission for UNESCO and Aġenzija Żgħażagħ invites Middle Schools to participate in a new ESD initiative, named IMPATT. This initiative aims to encourage young people in Years 7 and 8 to actively participate in local and national democratic decision-making. During this scholastic year, IMPATT will, hence, provide an opportunity to Middle school students to research historical and cultural heritage pertaining to several Maltese localities, while analysing how the course of time impacted their respective social, environmental, economic and cultural dimensions. This initiative will also require participating students to draft brief proposals encouraging Local Councils to ensure further sustainable development aligned to Malta’s Sustainable Development Vision 2050. In this context, schools are invited to participate in this initiative by nominating a team of between 5 and 8 students and a link educator. IMPATT initiative will unfold as per schedule below:Continue reading
