Term 3 Webinar - Resources for Teaching Artificial Intelligence (AI)

  • 11 Sep 2021
  • 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
  • Online

You’re invited.

Abstract: Our vision is to get more K-12 students involved in learning about Artificial Intelligence (AI). The AI4K12 Initiative (AI4K12.org) is defining national U.S.A. guidelines for teaching AI in K-12, and creating a curated directory of age-appropriate AI resources. There are a growing number of curriculum modules, video series, online demos, and AI software tools specifically designed for the K-12 audience. This webinar will survey some of these resources and discuss how they can be used to support teaching the content the guidelines recommend. WAICY (World Artificial Competition for Youth, WAICY.org ) is a free global AI competition that encourages K-12 school students to use their AI knowledge to build projects that solve real-world problems such as climate change, human rights, global public healthcare, etc. It’s not about how much kids know about coding or what program they use to build their projects, as much as it is about their comprehension of the impact of AI. WAICY is open for free to all students worldwide and takes place once a year in-person or virtually, but students from around the world can always join in remotely. WAICY 2021 is scheduled for November 20, 2021 (U.S.A. East time zone) and will be held virtually.
