Introducing…AI In My Life
Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the most transformative innovations of our times. While AI offers substantial benefits to individuals and society, it has major implications for privacy, ethics and security.

Try Out Our Taster Workshop
If you’d like to explore AI in My Life, we’re offering a 2-hour taster workshop to schools in February and March 2023.
Contact us at email@example.com if you’re interested in taking this taster workshop.
AI in My Life is a workshop series facilitated by teachers via an online toolkit containing course content and accompanying class activities. Teachers will be assisted via an initial train-the-trainer workshop and on-going support.
Undergraduate student ambassadors from our partner third-level institutions will help facilitate in-person workshops for some of the modules.
The entire programme takes 20 hours to complete. However, its modular structure means that you can pick and choose modules to suit the time you have available.
You can commence the programme at any time during the school year.
Indicative themes, and their associated learning outcomes, include:
AI in My Life: An Introduction
Thinking about AI, Ethics and Privacy
AI and Society
Digital Privacy Workshop
Students complete a final team project to demonstrate their learning from the programme. Currently this is a research poster but co-creation is exploring options for a digitally-based project. Details will be available soon.
Learning Outcomes and Syllabus Connections

You’ll receive training from ADAPT’s Education and Public Engagement team, and the online toolkit will provide you with background information on each of the modules.
We’ll also be there for you if you have questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
