Awesome AI PD for Educators
Harnessing the Power of AI for Teaching and Learning
How Does AI Work?
Start with the basics: Deepen your understanding of what AI is, how it works, and why the entire world buzzing about ChatGPT.
Expect this to be both terrifying and awesome. Explore cutting edge tools to better understand what you (and your students) can already do with AI.
What’s At Stake?
This technology is already in your students’ hands! Understand the risks presented by AI, and how they can be mitigated In the classroom.
AI technologies are rapidly evolving — literally, every day. How might we best prepare for the months ahead? For the future of education?
Why this matters Now
On November 30, 2023, OpenAI released their “public beta” of ChatGPT, and within days, their AI chatbot took the world by storm.
By early December, teachers were already using ChatGPT to craft lesson plans, personalize homework assignments, generate sample IEPs, draft parent emails, and much, much more.
And at the same time, students were already using ChatGPT to do their homework, write their essays, email their teachers, and much, much more. (AHHH!)
In the months that have elapsed since then, the same
technology that makes ChatGPT tick has been repurposed into a wide variety of tools. Today, in just a matter of seconds, you AND your students can use AI to generate images, clone voices, create full blown slide decks and presentations, compose essays that are less distinguishable from authentic human writing than ever before, and more.
It’s more important than ever for educators to stay ahead of the curve and to understand what’s possible with AI — to empower your professional practice, and to mitigate its misuse in your classroom.

This was awesome. Thank you so much for all of the information and resources packed into this workshop. Very informative. There is so much we just don’t know.
AI is growing at such a fast pace. It was great that this highlighted what we can use to improve our practice and what‘s applicable in the classroom. Great workshop.
I loved the approach to this workshop. A high level overview and history to understand applications, examples, and honest, genuine, relatable insights. PS, this feedback was NOT generated by AI!

This workshop contains approximately one hour of "direct instruction" videos, explanations, and walkthroughs — but the manner in which you pace and complete the modules is up to you. The hands-on exploration that you will do with the various AI tools you are introduced to will surely draw you into a longer journey. That‘s the beauty of a self-paced online course -- and the adventure starts here!
Yes, you will receive a certificate upon completion of the course that indicates one hour of PD participation. (Please note that different schools and states have different rules and regulations about what “counts” as PD.)
Yes, schools can request a quote to pay for registration via purchase order. (See the “School” option above.)
This is a rare moment in time — where we know the introduction of AI is going to have a pivotal impact on teaching, learning, and a whole lot more. These tools can enable you to quickly generate incredible content for your students (compelling lesson ideas, personalized word problems, readings at varied complexities, and so much more) — but, conversely, students can use these tools to bypass some of the most important parts of the learning process.
In this workshop, you’ll get to see some of the newest AI applications in action, and while some come at a nominal cost, you’ll be able to wield these wildly powerful tools for yourself. (Yes, you’ll be able to generate original images, clone your voice, and create entire presentations with a few keystrokes.) Simultaneously, you’ll gain a better understanding of what’s possible, which will invariable change the way you think about teaching and learning. (Knowing what students can whip up with just a few clicks is very, very important.)
Very few workshops are truly this cutting edge, this game-changing, and this important.
Get started now — you’ll be thrilled that you did!
