  "Education is an important task that delivers the values and intellectual heritage of the previous era to future generations while also fostering new future creative capabilities. We face a different educational paradigm than before in the wake of the fourth industrial revolution," President  Hyesook Kim said in her opening speech. "We hope that this forum will serve as a venue for deep discussions on future education at a time when the development of artificial intelligence and various digital media is changing traditional regulations on the role of educators and learners and facing fundamental questions about how and what to educate based on what talent awards" she said.

  Jungkyu Lee, head of the Creative Convergence Education Division at the Korea Science Foundation, said, "I am happy to be with excellent experts through the AI Creative Convergence Forum, and the Korea Science Foundation will actively support and generously support the forum." Hwang Kyu-ho, dean of Ewha Womans University's College of Education, said,`It will be a place of conversation to examine and prepare for how education should change in the AI era, such as 'how to teach students who will live in the AI era' and 'how to educate and retrain teachers who will lead the change.'

  "Korea is also supporting the development of research and AI talent while promoting innovation in the education system in preparation for the fourth industrial revolution around the world, but it is not in the field of education and AI policy," said Jeongyoung Jeong, director of the Institute for Future Education, who conducted the presentation under the theme of "The Direction of Education Policy in the AI Age." He stressed, "The policy vision should be used to foster basic AI skills of the entire people, nurture AI and experts, practice customized future education, and build AI with its support systems." He also said that creative customized future education is needed at a time when the education gap is widening due to low birth rates, aging population and deepening polarization, and that the problem of remote education gaps in preparation for after Corona should also be solved.

  Taking this forum as the first step, the Institute for Future Education of the College of Education of Ewha, the Center for Creative Education, and the Project Group of Teacher Training College of Creative Education will hold a forum every month to discuss the direction and tasks of future education in the AI era.
