Task Brief

We would like you to think about how you would introduce AI to your students. We invite you to present an introductory lesson that includes an introduction to AI (i.e. a definition or explanation) along with a learning activity covering one or more of the following topics:

Option 1: Unpacking a key AI concept or concepts

Option 2: The history and evolution of AI

Option 3: Risks and benefits of AI technologies

Option 4: Ethical considerations for AI technologies

With your lesson please include an example (or examples) of AI technology that would be of interest to your students or that is relevant to a classroom topic. You can draw on examples from our course or something you have discovered.

If you are not teaching in the classroom, you can create something for a mock class or as something you would model to teach in a professional development session.

You can choose how to present this activity. For example, it could be as a lesson plan, a blog post or as a presentation (e.g. a video or slide deck). With your post, please select an image that best represents your activity.
