National projects conducted by the Department of Media Education and Artificial Intelligence

  1. National Identity in the Process of School Education

The project “National Identity in the Process of School Education”, financed by the “Science for Society” programme of the Minister of Education, aims to learn about the opinions of primary and secondary school directors, teachers and students on national identity and how to shape it in public school.

  1. Nationwide Study on the Attitudes of Poles towards Artificial Intelligence

This is a national survey of Poles’ attitudes towards artificial intelligence using the CAWI panel. The data were collected between 15-20 September 2023 using Ariadna’s nationwide research panel.

  1. Digital competences of pupils in AI as a task of media education in primary schools

A grant application for the “Science for Society II” programme of the Ministry of Education and Science entitled “Digital competences of students in the field of AI as a task of media education in primary schools” (2023) has been prepared. Its aim is to diagnose the level of preparation and the attitude of primary schools in Poland towards implementing technologies based on AI. Another aim is to stimulate scientific discourse on the issues of the adaptation and use of AI and ML in the primary school education process, not only in the academic community, but also among school teachers.

  1. Investigating the impact of information and communication technologies on teaching and learning processes (work on the grant application is underway).
