Dive into the new LRE issue!
Issues of LRE often include a special feature, and the following articles are two of five contributions in the 18(2) special feature on artificial intelligence (AI) and the human in education. In ‘Digital literacies’ by Kucirkova and Mackey, the authors observe how personalized books enhanced with AI can affect children and reduce a child’s sense of individual agency. Taking a much wider perspective, Saltman considers how the development of for-profit artificial intelligence (AI) technologies fosters the privatization of public education and erodes the values and practices of democratic education.

Whether or not they have a special feature, all issues of LRE include general articles, and the breadth of subjects covered in 18(2) is typical for the journal. Amongst other issues, the articles investigate:
- summative assessment in primary science
- the support needs for effective teaching of first aid in secondary schools
- adaptations to a new learning environment for mainland Chinese students studying for master’s degrees in Hong Kong
- how teachers resist the normalized policy discourse and positioning of educational reform
