Covid Warrior Contest via AI World School

As a Spanish and STEAM teacher, I love bringing emerging technologies into my classroom. One area that we spend a lot of time on in my eighth grade course is artificial intelligence. For educators looking to get started with artificial intelligence in the classroom with students or for parents interested in providing opportunities for children to learn about AI, I definitely recommend checking out what is available through AI World School. My students are excited about becoming creators with AI!

Why learn about AI?

Many people wonder about the benefits of learning about AI and why bring it into our classrooms? We are interacting with AI everyday and our students need to understand what it is, how it works, the impact that it has on our lives and what AI might mean for the future of work and education. We are able to create the right learning opportunities that spark some curiosity and build skills in these emerging technologies. 

By exploring some of the courses and the free play activities that are available through AI World School, we can help students and ourselves to develop a better understanding of AI and also enjoy learning together.

Join the contest!

AI World School has launched a contest for teachers and students in grades 3 through 12.

The goal of the contest is to help students and teachers better understand artificial intelligence and how it has been used in helping to fight against COVID. Through the contest, there will be opportunities to learn more about artificial intelligence, how it is used in the world, and for students and teachers to develop their coding skills.

The contest runs through the end of July and you can participate by using code or no code .

In the resources provided, you will learn from articles that provide research to show how AI is being used in the fight against COVID, you will have access to a free e-book, and also access to scratch for AI on the AI World School platform.

You can sign up to join here https://lnkd.in/dqScvf2 All projects must be submitted by September 16th and prizes will be awarded in October!

There are three different categories based on age and grade level of students and a category for teachers as well and divided between the code or no code options.

One thought on “Covid Warrior Contest via AI World School

  1. There may be some benefit in this as it will become a greater part of society and technology in the years ahead. For myself, I would much rather teach the basics, then supplement the curriculum with quality lessons and projects that engage the students to think for themselves, then encourage them to ponder what they want to do when they grow up, looking up resources and discuss with people already there, though they would take it to the next level.
