Wimbledon High School is holding its second pastoral festival on Saturday 21 September: 'Being Human in an AI world.'
The digital aspect of our daily lives brings amazing potential, yet are we all in danger of losing sight of the humans around us?
The day will explore pastoral challenges of our digital world for parents, students and teachers, while also looking at how education might look very different over the next 20 years – whether through virtual reality, augmented reality or artificial intelligence.
