FoMCM – “Digital Life” – Coffee Morning 2023

On Friday, 22nd September, the Friends of MCM (FoMCM) hosted their second Coffee Morning of the new academic year. The theme was ‘Digital Life of the College’ and focused on how AI (Artificial Intelligence) is changing the educational landscape, as well as how the College is supporting both pupils and staff to use this new technology effectively. 

Director of Digital Learning, Mr. Ogilvie led a short presentation on how AI can be used to personalise learning, as well as explaining ways that teachers at MCM are educating pupils on responsible and ethical usage of these new technologies. The College has been proactive in training staff on the use of AI and all teachers received guidance on the topic at the start of the school year. 

After the presentation, parents got the chance to ask their own questions during the round table discussions which dealt with three key topics: managing AI at MCM, the use of generative AI, and digital wellbeing. There were some excellent points raised and senior staff members were on hand to listen and discuss ways that we as a community can ensure that our pupils are well educated about this subject.

We look forward to welcoming parents to the next coffee morning, which will be held on Friday 3rd November.
