PebblePad also revealed its ongoing work on a pioneering global study focused on the intersection of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Higher Education (HE). This ground-breaking initiative, unveiled at the annual UK user conference, demonstrates PebblePad’s commitment to driving innovation in the education sector.
Recognizing the transformative power of AI in higher education, PebblePad embarked on a comprehensive study to help institutions effectively and ethically embrace AI.
