Innovation in Learning: The Revolutionary Impact of AI on Education
Artificial intelligence has made its way into the education sector, and its potential to transform the learning experience is enormous. Large language models and AI technology offer a wide range of possibilities and some incredible opportunities for both students and teachers. This month, we’ll be joined by Catrina Mitchum, an Associate Adjunct Professor and instructional designer, as well as Wilson Tsu, CEO & Founder of PowerNotes, an edtech platform uniquely positioned to address AI’s place in the modern classroom.
This webinar dove into the latest developments in AI, their impact on education, and the challenges and considerations that come with integrating AI into the classroom. They explored the potential impact of AI on student learning, policy, academic research, writing instruction, ethics, and more!
Catrina elaborates on how educators can approach and incorporate AI effectively while still preserving the individual voice of students, among other teacher-to-teacher pro tips.
