How to Make a Mind (Artificial Intelligence)
Combining Critical and Creative Thinking; Mathematics; Biology; and Digital Technologies together in an integrated STEM project.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) changes everything for education. AI has the capacity to improve learning. AI projects provide opportunities to accelarate learning across different STEM subjects. Using AIEd, teachers will be able to provide learners with educational experiences that are more personalised, flexible, inclusive and engaging.
In the world of work, cognitive work is rapidly coming within the domain of computing. Even in ‘safe’ professions, such as law, significant aspects of lawyers work are being codified and automated. Automation – in which AI is a key tool – is happening right across the economy.
The goal of this joint Intuyu-CLWB workshop is to develop the understanding and critical thinking skills that not only support curriculum-based learning goals, but start to prepare children for a future where Artificial Intelligence will have significant impact on their lives.
KEY ACTIVITIES INCLUDE:
- What is learning?
- Object intelligence ranking game
- Neural network game
- Can machines think?
- AI Demystified including how to develop essential Maths and Programming Skills plus scenarios and models
Hosted by Ipswich Junior Grammar School the workshop is for secondary and upper primary teachers and senior leaders, especially those who’s responsibilities include STEM.
