'T.Ai' - Your Virtual Teaching Assistant

A practical guide to using ChatGPT (and other ‘AI’ tools) in the classroom. The latest AI-powered chatbots - OpenAI, Google Bard, and Microsoft’s Bing - all promise to change the way we work. But how can teachers practically use these tools today to improve their own teaching? In this talk, Director of Literacy and former tech consultant Max Bruges will explore the opportunities (and limitations) of these new tools, providing an ‘absolute beginners’ introduction on how to use them in a range of contexts. The workshop will also include a LIVE demonstration of these tools in action, as well as sneak preview of future projects. From designing worksheets, to generating model answers, to providing tailored feedback, we’ll explore a range of AI-powered solutions which you can use today to change the way you teach. Ideal for classroom teachers looking to enhance their practice, or administrators considering how these new tools can help transform curriculum delivery.
