An Introduction to Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence and Gen-AI in particular has really taken the world by storm over the past few years. Experts would all agree that it is (and potentially has already) going to have a significant impact on the world of education. This course will allow you to explore AI in the context of the primary classroom. We will delve into the potential benefits of using AI, sample ideas for incorporating it into your practice to aid productivity, how children can use AI for enhancing their learning, as well as the risks and ethical concerns around the use of AI in education. The course has been authored by a number of teachers who have actively been incorporating AI into their teaching, and will be sure to bring this perspective to the course. If you are looking for ways to improve the learning experiences you can offer to your class while saving yourself time, then this is certainly the course for you!

Farming at Sea

TeachNet is also pleased to offer the ‘Farming at Sea: Links to the Primary Classroom’ course in both fully-online and blended forms. This course will allow participants to delve into the world of aquaculture, which is the process of framing fish and shellfish. While the course covers many areas, the inclusion of an inquiry-led approach can really help teachers to plan for lessons within STEM education. TeachNet are delighted to partner with the Aquaculture Remote Classroom 9ARC) for this course, and support will be provided by experienced ARC educators.
