Learn to Machine Learn and the Institute of Digital Games (University of Malta) is hosting a two-part webinar on 3 November 2020 at 15.00 CET for researchers and educators to present their current projects related to AI and digital games in education. The webinar will start with an introductory English version and a Greek version to train Greek educators will follow.
Registration is free and available here (a Facebook account is not needed to attend).
The Learn to Machine Learn project is a three-year Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership in the field of Education, which aims to produce innovative solutions for the teaching and learning of crucial skills related to digital literacy, computational thinking, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Machine Learning (ML), so that Europe’s children and teenagers can develop into responsible citizens and insightful thinkers able to navigate the complex digital space and effectively contribute to its design.
To address these challenges, the LearnML project transfers the notion of AI literacy to primary and secondary education and aims to introduce students to the core principles of AI and ML through a uniquely designed game-based educational toolbox. The core objectives of the project are to design an AI and ML framework within the primary and secondary educational context, implement an innovative game-based learning toolbox that realises ML training scenarios (games and game authoring tools), produce relevant and effective training, teaching and learning material for course development based on gameful ML activities, educate teachers to effectively engage students and promote creative reflection on AI ethics, data biases and societal implications, and widely involve students in ML training courses that include playful game-based learning activities so that they become AI literate but most importantly responsible citizens of Europe with regards to the ethics and threats of AI.
During the webinar, you will learn about:
- The LearnML Project and the educational framework,
- Challenges faced when teaching and learning AI,
- The transition from digital literacy to AI literacy,
- Connected learning and the education crisis, and
- Games that are ready to be used in classrooms to teach AI concepts
