An opportunity for teachers from our colleague Steve Pearson at IBM:

We know that AI is going to change 100% of jobs over the next decade. Preparing students for this future is a huge challenge facing School Districts and educators alike. That’s why IBM, a leader in AI, is partnering with mindSpark Learning, a leader in teacher development, to offer high quality, interactive professional development focused on artificial intelligence for K-12 educators across the U.S. and Canada.  

IBM AI Education is an immersive, interactive professional learning suite of online and in-person experiences to guide you through AI’s foundational concepts and K-12 classroom connections. Participants will learn how to infuse their content and curriculum with the knowledge, skills and values driving innovation in AI today. And it’s completely free to educators!

By taking part, educators will:
·        be able to talk confidently and knowledgably with students about AI – how it works, it’s impacts, and ethical considerations;
·        receive a certificate for professional development credits and be awarded an IBM Digital Badge upon completion;
·        access free classroom tools and exercises to help them bring AI learning to their students; and
·        become part of a unique community of educators where ideas and information can be exchanged long after training is completed.

Educators can learn more and sign up for an interactive online institute or an in-person institute in one of 30+ cities across the United States and Canada here.

Choose from the following dates in RTP: March 9-10, 2020 or May 28-29, 2020

We’d love for an educator to write about it for EducationNC!
