This is AI/ML 101 for teachers. Thinking about what direction you’re taking your classes for next year and wondering how to include some STEM activities? Need inspiration for incorporating AI and ML in your digital technologies/ STEM or inquiry curriculum? Have a class that you know wants to do cool things with Machine Learning but don’t know where to start, or feel constrained by budgets and time? This is the Webinar for you.
Sharing from her vast data background with a passion to get kids involved, Catriona Botterill will show you why this is essential teaching and how it covers the curriculum, she’ll demystify what is meant by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, and will give you some ideas about activities you can feel comfortable taking your students through. Aimed at later primary school, but also useful for early high school teachers, this Webinar cuts through the huge amount of time that Catriona has spent gathering the right material, and short tracks your understanding of AI/ML to quickly make you feel comfortable to share your newfound knowledge and get your students excited about some STEM activities that they can delve into.
