Session description

This moment in history should gain multiple points of view, leveraging and advancing how we understand human-computer interaction in education, human development and Generative AI. A groundbreaking documentary speaks for itself, but hear behind the scenes in this ISTE exclusive talk with the director and the people interviewed.

Purpose & objective

The education community was blindsided by artificial intelligence blitz into schools and classrooms around nation. This documentary reveals how the shock and awe obscured three factors that will likely shape how quickly schools will be ready to teach in the age of ChatGPT and its AI cousins.

While there has been a lot of talk about how AI will change the face of education, there is a need for critical thinking, dialog, and nuanced considerations to effectively incorporate Generative Artificial Intelligence (GAI) as part of teaching, learning, and leading. This documentary was created to capture points of view at this inflection point in history and education where there are more questions than answers surrounding GAI. Providing a space to include dialog, behind the scenes, and questions and answers with people involved in the documentary will give a chance to broaden the dialog.
