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 April and May 2022.
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.
AI in My Life is being piloted with schools in the DCU Access network currently. Content will be refined based on evaluation from this pilot. Indicative themes, and their associated learning outcomes, include:
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.
