Call for Speaker Proposals: Good Practices of using Generative AI in Teaching and Learning.

Event Description

UNESCO is calling for good practices of using generative AI(GenAI) in teaching and learning. Representatives of selected projects will be invited to speak at the 2024 edition of Digital Learning Week to be organized by UNESCO from 2 to 5 September at UNESCO HQ in Paris.


UNESCO is currently organizing the second edition of Digital Learning Week in 2024. One of the event's sub-themes will be centred around the sharing of experiences and lessons learned about the use of GenAI in teaching and learning. In this context, UNESCO is calling for speaker proposals from teachers, experts, and institutions on good practices of using GenAI in teaching and learning. Proposals may involve the use of GenAI at any grade level and any type of education institution (early education institutions, basic education schools, TVET schools or institutions, universities or higher education institutions).

Proposals on good practices of using generative AI in teaching and learning should fall under one or more of the following categories:

as a 1:1 coach for students’ self-paced acquisition of foundational skills;

to facilitate students’ inquiry or project-based learning;

to support students' social and emotional learning; and

to support learners with special needs.

Proposals will be evaluated based on the following criteria:


The practices on the uses of generative AI in teaching and learning should already be implemented for a minimum of six months. The duration of the implementation can be flexible but ideas/proposals that have NOT yet been implemented will NOT be accepted;

The proposal must provide evidence to demonstrate the use of generative AI tools;

Institutional validation or strategies for ensuring trustable AI for teaching and learning, and the core values on inclusion, equity, gender equality, linguistic and cultural diversity, and pluralism of opinions;

The rigorousness of the design and the methodology to measure the effectiveness;

Evidence to support the effectiveness against the pre-set objectives and the impact of the emergent projects or practices in schools or classrooms, including on students’ social and emotional development; and
