Invitation to the Webinar “AI for teaching school subjects: practical tools and their functionalities,” – May 29, 2024


Artificial intelligence (AI) tools have become increasingly prominent in education, offering transformative potential for teachers and students alike. Given the rapid growth of AI applications in education, it’s crucial for teachers to gain practical experience with these tools. Hands-on experience allows educators to understand how AI can complement their teaching style and curriculum; by experimenting with AI-based lesson planning tools, educators can discover new resources, teaching methods, and interactive elements to engage students. Additionally, direct experience with AI helps teachers feel more comfortable and confident in integrating technology into their daily routines, fostering a more innovative learning environment. As educators become more adept at using AI, they can better tailor their instruction to meet individual student needs and foster a more inclusive classroom experience. Ultimately, the integration of AI in education provides an opportunity to transform teaching and learning, making education more accessible, personalized, and effective.

Recognizing all of the above, the webinar “AI for teaching school subjects: practical tools and their functionalities” intends to familiarize educators (primary, secondary, high school teachers, TVET educators, and more!) with various AI applications, such as tools for generating lesson plans, designing assessments, and creating interactive learning activities. The webinar will focus not only on technical skills but also on pedagogical and ethical implications, guiding teachers on how to use AI to enhance student engagement and learning outcomes, building awareness about privacy and personal data use when interacting with GenAI tools, discussing expectations of different stakeholders and ways to turn AI into a truly educational tool for students instead of making it a substitute for students’ learning.

The webinar is co-organized by the UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies in Education (UNESCO IITE) and Europass Teacher Academy (Italy) in the framework of UNESCO IITE flagship webinar series “Harnessing Technology to Transform Education”
