A is for Artificial Intelligence
AI is transforming the world at a rapid pace. As educators, how can we prepare students for the future workforce in the AI-economy? How might AI impact K-12 education?  Can AI help students to learn in innovative ways? Should students learn about AI in the K-12 classroom? In this talk, Dr. Breazeal presents pioneering research in exploring social robots as a new type of educational technology. She will highlight provocative scientific findings with respect to the impact of social embodiment, non-verbal and emotive expression, personalization, and relationship on sustaining children’s engagement, learning gains, and impact on attitudes. She will also present recent work on constructionist approaches to introduce elementary school students to concepts and ethical design practices in AI through building, programing, training and interacting with robots and digital media. As a university professor and high-tech startup entrepreneur, she will also discuss challenges and opportunities in preparing students for success in college as well as in the fast-paced commercial arena.
