Wednesday, December 2, 2:00–2:45 pm PST (Pacific Standard Time)

Hall Davidson  
Free classroom integration material for elementary through high school, from AI computer science to algorithmic thinking. AI will impact everything. Make GenAlexa ready for their world. Finally, see how AI will supplement teaching—and why the teaching profession is in the rare safe position in the new world.

ISTE Standards: For Students:
Computational Thinker
  • Students understand how automation works and use algorithmic thinking to develop a sequence of steps to create and test automated solutions.
  • Students formulate problem definitions suited for technology-assisted methods such as data analysis, abstract models and algorithmic thinking in exploring and finding solutions.
  • Students collect data or identify relevant data sets, use digital tools to analyze them, and represent data in various ways to facilitate problem-solving and decision-making.
Additional detail: Session will be simulcast live

Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The objectives are for participants to leave with 1) experience with artificial intelligence in a curriculum-centered environment 2) understand future impact and presence of artificial intelligence in working professions and in daily life 3) gain models and lessons for using artificial intelligence in the classroom 4) to be familiar with the grant structure possible for the (modest) funds needed to fund AI for the typical classroom.
Also, markers for success in classrooms, especially
emphasizing use for curriculum and projects. Also, strategies for teaching independence from AI (DYI activities)--something that will become more important. The work being doing in districts in Maryland and California will be shown. Some of these programs began in the some years ago. Success will be evidenced by familiarity with web-based and machine-based learning, as determined by an exit Kahoot.

Outline

1. Overview of what Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are, how is used now, and what the near future will look like. (10 minutes).
2. A definition of AI and ML (3 minutes)
3. Demonstration of sites usable to teach machine learning
and artificial intelligence to students (Google, IBM, Facebook examples). This will be an interactive audience participation segment (10-12 minutes).
4. How to set up programmable, inexpensive hardware in classrooms (5 minutes).
5. Demonstration with participants for programming typical home devices such as Amazon's AI hardware (Alexa) (10 minutes)
6. Strategies shared for classroom use from districts now offering programs from coding to problem solving. Also how to integrate AI into traditional classroom activities and assignments. Including how to turn off AI and fend without it. (10 minutes)
7. Reading list given (non-fiction and fiction) for follow-up and
familiarity (5 min)
8. Quick overview of the 'dark side' of AI in press. (5 min) Example release forms for FRPA and COPPA
9. Q&A with time remaining.
