Bringing Artificial Intelligence (AI) into Your Classroom
Tuesday, 26 September, 7-8:30pm ET
Facilitated by Brent Warner
Session overview: ChatGPT and generative AI have erupted like an avalanche, and teachers are cautiously navigating what this new terrain looks like. As the previous landscape is not returning, this session is focused on ways we as teachers can help our students understand what this technology means, and how we can integrate it directly into our classes rather than hide from it. Together we will discuss what Artificial Intelligence and Large Language Models are and how to approach them. The session will focus on several specific classroom applications for AI, including ways to integrate it into lessons with students, as well as using it to support you in your professional work.
