We have two sessions on Artificial Intelligence in Education scheduled on February 13th and 14th.
Ten Ways To Try AI in Your Classroom Right Now with Jon Ippolito
Plenty of educators across the world have justifiably groaned about students using ChatGPT to spit out a report on mitochondria or the Industrial Revolution in a matter of seconds. Other educators, however, have been sharing ways that generative AI can empower teachers themselves–if we are willing to shift our mindset about the function and process of education. This hands-on workshop will offer practice in ten AI-assisted techniques for enhancing student learning and making school administration easier, from generating assignment rubrics and quizzes personalized to each student to applying for research grants and justifying new staff. Participants will come away with a more nuanced understanding of how the tools work based on direct experience with their power and pitfalls.
Jon Ippolito is a Professor of New Media and Director of the Digital Curation program at the University of Maine.
The session will take place Tuesday, February 13th, 1:30pm-2:30pm GMT, 3:30-4:30pm Egypt, 8:30am-9:30am EST – see the timezone converter belowTime converter at worldtimebuddy.com
