Exploring AI in Education

This past August, statewide AEA leaders and district leaders were brought together for our Principal Alliance meeting, with a focus on the exciting world of Artificial Intelligence (AI). As AI continues to evolve, it’s crucial for educators and administrators to understand its potential in education. In this blog, you will explore what AI is, delve into how AI can boost productivity in administrative and educational settings, and be given different AI platforms to try.

Understanding AI

Artificial Intelligence (AI), is the ability of a computer or robot, controlled by a computer, to do tasks usually done by humans. It is built through machine learning and learns from interactions with users. Algorithms allow the computer/robot to analyze data, identify patterns, and use information to generate a predictive response.
