    Learn how to use AI as a Primary Teacher: A Safe and Successful Practical Guide (Webinar) – 11 March 2024

    by Hannah Richardson -

    Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing the world, and education is no exception. Join Phil Bagge in a practical exploration of how we can safely and freely use AI to enhance many of the teaching tasks we carry out on a daily basis, such as: 

    • Curriculum design 
    • Presenting ideas 
    • Testing 
    • Marking 

    This course is not a computing course; although we will use technology, it is about helping primary educators enhance learning in all subjects through the careful use of AI while understanding the limitations and drawbacks of the technology at this stage of its development.
