For many, artificial intelligence, or AI, may seem like a new and possibly overwhelming concept. The reality is that AI is already being applied in industry and, for many of us, in our daily lives as well. A better understanding of AI can help you make informed decisions now that will impact the future of your learners.

This book features:

  • Perspectives from educators and industry experts on how they are using AI.
  • Approaches to teaching about AI, including design thinking, project-based learning and STEM connections.
  • Tools for exploring AI and sharing it with your students.
  • Activities to introduce AI concepts, reflection questions and lesson ideas.

 

In Teaching AI, you’ll learn what AI is, how it works and how to use it to better prepare students in a world with increased human-computer interaction.
