Independent school students using AI to support deeper learning.


What is our job as educators in a world being disrupted by generative artificial intelligence (AI)? How do we embrace the potential of this powerful tool while staying aware of, and hopefully avoiding, its pitfalls? This introductory workshop offers educators relevant and practical entry points to begin the process of making sense of AI. After reviewing core concepts and principles of critical AI literacy, participants will experience guided, hands-on practice with AI tools, trying different prompts and use cases that can have a positive impact on our day-to-day work as educators. This is an interactive, participatory session, so participants should expect to engage in breakout activities where they discuss and share their work with colleagues.


Participants will:

  • Explore the current state of AI in education
  • Understand core principles of using generative artificial intelligence effectively
  • Practice a variety of prompts and use cases that are relevant to the day-to-day work and goals of educators


Classroom-based educators as well as school leaders. Ideal for teams!
