AI is rapidly transforming teaching and learning processes, and Vocational and Adult educators need to be equipped with skills to understand, evaluate and utilise AI technologies effectively and responsibly. This book examines the dual challenge of AI as a tool for training and learning but also a subject for learning in VET and adult education. To achieve this, the supplement aligns AI competencies to the six key areas of the DigCompEdu framework: Professional Engagement, Digital Resources, Teaching and Learning, Assessment, Empowering Learners, and Facilitating Learner's Digital Competence. For each area, it delves into how AI can be applied in that context, suggested activities for educators to develop relevant skills, proposed progression levels for competency building, potential challenges that may arise, and strategies to address them. Some of the key AI competencies emphasised in the supplement include developing data literacy, computational thinking, curriculum design leveraging AI, ethical AI use, and preparing students for an AI-driven world. It adopted the same six-stage progression model from Newcomer to Pioneer used in the DigCompEdu framework to allow for consistency and integration. The supplement highlights several challenges that need to be navigated when integrating AI in education. These include concerns around data privacy, algorithmic bias, unequal access to AI technologies, changing roles of educators, and the need for continuous professional development as AI evolves. It stresses the importance of developing ethical, human-centered, and responsible approaches to AI in teaching and learning. Overall, the document provides a comprehensive guide for incorporating AI competencies into the skillsets of Adult and VET educators and trainers, equipping them to handle the emerging and transformative role of AI in diverse educational and workplace contexts. It aims to prepare educators to harness the promise of AI in enhancing learning experiences while mitigating risks through ethical and thoughtful integration.
