There are many resources available for educators to help students to learn about artificial intelligence and machine learning and what the future might look like with these technologies. As educators, regardless of our content area or grade level that we teach, we can talk about these topics in our classes and find a way to make a connection that is meaningful for our students. Because there has been and will continue to be such growth in the area of artificial intelligence, coding and computer science, it is important that we all work together to bring these topics into our classes. Our students need to learn about them on a consistent basis so that they are better prepared for the future.
When it comes to artificial intelligence, giving students the chance to learn in a more hands-on or self-directed manner will make a difference. Students may not think that they are interested in AI or may feel that they might not be able to complete a certain task, which has been the case in my experience but as teachers, we just need to give them the opportunities.
As we have worked through in-person and virtual and higher learning, having the right resources that enable all students to participate regardless of where they are or the time that classes are taking place, makes a difference. With artificial intelligence an important area to discuss is when it comes to bias and also the ethical considerations that go along with artificial intelligence. AI World School offers many tools to help students build their knowledge and skills in AI. This summer, AIWS is offering summer camp! Several courses for students of different age groups and there are special prices available now too!
In this course, students work through different modules to learn about how autonomous vehicles carry out the tasks that they do and where artificial intelligence and the use of algorithms fits into the process.
The course includes many videos and is very interactive and engaging for students. It also includes all of the materials that are necessary for students to engage as much as they want and to become not just consumers but also the creators.
It is important for our students to understand these emerging technologies, especially ones that will continue to grow and impact us in the future. According to the World Economic Forum, 1 billion jobs will be transformed by technology in the next 10 years. And in the “Jobs of Tomorrow” report there will be an influx of jobs in the area of artificial intelligence. Because of these changes in the world of work, we must make sure that we best prepare our students. Having access to resources that provide our students with the right information and also give them the chance to work at their own pace and to explore based on their specific interest and needs, makes a difference. The opportunities through AIWS offer self-directed and more engaging learning for students.
For educators looking to get started with learning more about artificial intelligence to use in the classroom with students or parents interested in providing opportunities for children to learn about AI, I recommend exploring what is available through AI World School. There are a variety of courses available that provide engaging learning experiences about artificial intelligence and machine learning for students. Each module includes challenges that are great for getting students to think about becoming creators with AI.
