In this talk, I will argue that in order to ensure that AI technologies for use in education and training embody judicious analysis and learn in a Learning Sciences informed manner, we must develop inter-stakeholder partnerships modelled on those that are operationalised through the EDUCATE EdTech programme in London. These inter-stakeholder partnerships are essential for AI developers to better understand teaching and learning, and for educators and trainers to better understand AI. They are also key to the development of better AI for education and training.
