Artificial intelligence is probably already helping many students write essays. Schools and unis need to start talking about the ethical implications now.
Treating online education as a cheap alternative to lectures will be a mistake. At first universities will probably have to allow more preparation time and invest more in training and technology.
A study on the delivery of sexuality education found some teachers were anxious about parental fear, negative media and political hysteria. Sometimes they watered down 'risky' content.
