Professional Development for Teachers: Creating a Spark for Artificial Intelligence
February 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Come join us for this online institute as an introduction to what artificial intelligence (AI) is and how it can relate to your students. Participants will hear from IBM AI subject matter experts and MindSpark Learning facilitators on the resources for learning the basics about AI that can be easily integrated into the classroom.
According to LinkedIn’s 2020 Emerging Jobs Report, demand for AI specialists grew 74% over the last five years. Iowa is an emerging leader in the Midwest for computer science education, and exposing students to different facets of this field will support their learning, regardless of their career path. The IBM AI Education experience was designed to give all educators the knowledge and confidence to bring foundational AI concepts into their K-12 classroom, regardless of their grade level or subject matter.
Creating a Spark for AI is just the first of nine different AI topics that we offer. Attend all nine and have the opportunity to earn your IBM AI Education Badge! Participation in live sessions with Iowa facilitators can also lead to credit. Sessions to start Summer 2021.
