PrimaryAI: Teaching Elementary Students About Artificial Intelligence

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We will present our PrimaryAI curriculum, an integrated AI-science curriculum and immersive learning environment that introduce AI concepts including perception, planning, robotics, and machine learning, as well as AI ethics, into upper elementary science classrooms. PrimaryAI enables students to collaboratively learn about artificial intelligence by using age-appropriate AI tools to solve ecology problems in science adventures as they engage in argument from evidence, analyze and interpret data, develop models, and construct explanations. The deliverables of the presentation will include the PrimaryAI curricula, the PrimaryAI immersive problem-based learning environment, the PrimaryAI professional development model and its associated materials, and the PrimaryAI online community portal. The outcome of this presentation will build knowledge on the design and development of AI-infused life science learning environments and teaching models for upper elementary grades.

Participants will participate in model activities and discussions, as well as receive copies of the curriculum.
