Hall Davidson  
Explore resources to teach artificial intelligence, from templates to programming. Learn about using consumer devices in libraries and classrooms, blueprints, coding, multiple languages, web-based resources, strategies, and examples for teaching algorithmic and computational thinking. Also, hear about the importance of parent permissions. Sample letters will be provided. Participants will build and test AI skills and explore AI games.

Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Challenge/Situation: Artificial Intelligence is too new to be part of most curriculums in school. But AI is becoming enormously impactful on everyday life, work, and learning. It is time to address this for the classroom teacher.
Tools Used will include Google AI experiments, Amazon Alexa blueprints and devices, and government and educational websites with permission form models.
Models will include Amazon Blueprints and FERPA and COPPA guidelines and permissions.
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 us artificial intelligence in the classroom 4) leave with usable model permission letters 5) understanding of the dangers and sensitivities of public perception of AI
Lesson plans from educational partners on AI and algorithmic thinking will be shared. These are free and posted online.
Also, markers for success in classrooms, especially
emphasizing use for curriculum and projects.
Success will be evidenced by familiarity with web-based and machine-based learning, as determined by an exit interactive activity (resembling Kahoot, Flipgrid)

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. (3 minutes)
2.Acknowledge debate discussion of whether AI in schools is appropriate, say it will done at the end (1 minute).
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 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. How to integrate AI in 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. Debate discussion of whether AI in schools is appropriate (5 min) Example release forms for FRPA and COPPA (5 minute)
9. Q&A with time remaining.
