The COVID-19 pandemic forced extensive experimentation in how education has been – and may be – delivered worldwide. The increasing use of and dependency on educational technology for diverse aspects of learning, teaching and assessment has been felt across all disciplines, including computing. Similarly, we have seen an explosion in the use and application of artificial intelligence (AI) tools in education, potentially being as significant a disruptor and a catalyst for change as the pandemic itself. This single UK institutional pilot study critically explores how technology may be employed to support and benefit computing students in the face of this emerging ongoing disruption.
