A.I. in Education: Preparing Children for a New Paradigm

September 14 (In-Person)
12:30 pm - 2:00 pm CT
Ethical Uses of Digital Resources
Administrators, Instructional Coaches, Library and Media Specialists, Teachers

Have you been hearing about ChatGPT in the news? How about DOLL·E 2? These generative A.I. tools (A.I. that creates content) are poised to make an incredible impact on education.

This session will be a collaborative experience where we learn about the current and future landscape of generative A.I., explore its use (and misuse potential) in the K-12 classroom, and develop a working plan for how to approach A.I. tools in your district. These tools are the new calculator; they will become ubiquitous and districts, teachers, students and families need to be educated on how best to handle them. Come join the conversation and help build that capacity in your district!
