About This Webinar

Join us for our next AI Educator Brain webinar, where we dive into the essential policies and guardrails needed for integrating artificial intelligence (AI) in education. With AI technologies rapidly advancing, it's crucial to establish robust frameworks to ensure their ethical and practical use in our classrooms. This session will spotlight the AFT's commonsense guardrails, designed to protect student privacy, promote equity, and empower educators. We’ll also explore valuable resources from TeachAI, providing practical tools and guidance for educators and policymakers. 

And while this topic on policy may not seem as digitally exciting as our previous EdBrAIn webinars, we promise to keep the energy and laughter high as New York City Public School teacher Sari Beth Rosenberg and AFT Share My Lesson's Director Kelly Booz tie in the "Creepy or Cool?" segment to AI policy considerations. From AI-driven assessments to creative image generation, we'll help you navigate the fine line between innovative and unnerving. This webinar is your chance to stay ahead of the curve and take an active role in shaping the future of AI in education. 

Don't miss out on this crucial discussion! With the right guardrails, AI in education can be more like a helpful teaching assistant and less like a robot taking over the world. This webinar is your opportunity to stay informed and play an active role in shaping the future of AI in education. Learn more here:

This free, for-credit webinar is just one of many running as part of Share My Lesson's Summer of Learning series. Register now to watch them live or later on demand.
