About the Event

What's it all about?

In this free 2.5-hour workshop, parents and carers will discover the incredible potential of free artificial intelligence and machine-learning applications to support their child's learning and development at home.

Designed for parents and carers of students in years 3-12 (with a future session catering to K-3), this introductory course assumes no prior knowledge. All you need is an open mind and an understanding of your child's individual needs. Together, we'll explore how each tool applies to your unique context.

Course Overview

During the workshop, we will provide an overview of a carefully selected range of current AI applications, including their features and capabilities. Additionally, we will share effective strategies for maximizing their use. The course will consist of two hours of practical activities to help you get started and harness the full potential of these powerful tools, followed by 30 minutes of supported experimentation.

Highlighted Areas of Focus

Based on initial feedback from parents, the program will cover the use of AI applications to support:

  • Mathematical understanding
  • Reading and writing skills
  • Differentiation and personalized learning assistants for students who require additional support in key areas
  • Critical and creative thinking development

Note: Participants are required to bring their own laptop or tablet for the workshop.
