Exploring AI in Education: Our Spanish Teacher's Enriching Journey in Malta with Erasmus+
Our Spanish teacher, Chrysoulla Constantinou, recently embarked on a week-long adventure in Malta as she participated in an Erasmus+ course, "Artificial Intelligence for Education: Exploring the Frontiers of ICT", within the framework of the Erasmus+ Accreditation project.
During the course, participants delved into AI's applications in education and its history dating back to the 1950s. On Monday, 24th of July, the diverse group of 12 participants from Poland, Spain, the Czech Republic, Ireland, Italy, and Germany attended a session on AI's impact on daily life, ethical considerations, and Microsoft's responsible AI principles. Fascinating examples of AI implementations, like Sophia the robo-citizen, were discussed.
On the second day, the course continued with discussions on verifying information in the age of AI-generated content. Participants had hands-on experiences with AI tools like ChatGPT, Bing, and Bard, emphasizing the importance of relying on trusted sources. They also explored AI's potential in transforming education, with insights from Patric Nilsson, co-founder of Dugga, a digital assessment tool.
Throughout the course, our teacher and participants remained enthusiastic about discovering AI's potential in education and its broader societal implications. Updates on their enriching experiences in Malta followed.
