Date/time: February 29, 2024, 3:30-5:30 P.M. EST
AI-powered tools and technologies have the potential to revolutionize the way we teach and learn; however, they are often viewed as short-cuts by many students, undermining the educational value of many academic tasks and robbing students of the chance to develop the executive function strategies they will need for future success.
In this workshop, participants will learn about how AI works and the ways that it can both help and harm support EF development. Using specific examples of AI-powered tools and technologies that can be used in the classroom to support EF skills, attendees will walk away with strategies for using AI ethically and responsibly in education. This workshop is designed for teachers, educators, and coaches who are interested in learning more about how AI can be used to support student success. No prior knowledge of AI is required.
