IT2School: AI & Machine Learning for Classrooms
Open in a new tab

What do you think about, when you think of AI? I am sure that Wall-E, R2D2 and maybe Ava from the movie Ex Machina are among the thoughts that go through your head. Our associations with AI often go directly to imagining human-like robots. It is difficult for us to imagine that something can be intelligent without being or looking human. It is similar for learners. The easier we make it for learners to connect their real-life experiences to AI, the more fellow programming and Snap!-Fans we will be able to welcome into the community!

In this workshop, we want to show you how you can create an all-inclusive approach to teaching AI to 5th-12th graders. First using posters and chatbot paper models, then moving to the digital sphere sparking learners’ creativity to programming their own games using Snap! All that and more with the new AI cluster in development for the education project IT2School - Gemeinsam IT entdecken (Discovering IT together) developed in collaboration by FU Berlin, University of Oldenburg, SAP Young Thinkers and Wissensfabrik – Unternehmen für Deutschland.

The shown teaching resources are available in English and German.
