Using AI tools to help teaching.

This session on “Using AI Tools to Help Teaching” is designed to equip educators with the knowledge and skills to effectively integrate Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools into their teaching methodologies.

We will delve into a variety of AI-powered applications and platforms that can enhance the learning experience, such as personalized learning assistants, AI-driven analytics for student performance, and automated grading systems.

Participants will explore practical examples of how AI can streamline administrative tasks, provide personalised learning pathways for students, and support diverse learning needs. The session also covers the ethical considerations of using AI in the classroom, including data privacy and the importance of human oversight in AI implementations.

Through hands-on activities, educators will get the opportunity to interact with several AI tools, understand their functionalities and learn how to incorporate them into their curriculum to create a more engaging, efficient, and inclusive learning environment.

This session is suitable for:
