Teaching Artificial Intelligence in the Primary Classroom (2020)

This free course is presented as two related parts. In the first part, Primary School Teachers are provided with the necessary background information (core concepts and examples of AI-driven technology, history and evolution of AI, benefits, risks and ethical considerations of AI) to teach and contextualise AI in the classroom by providing an overview. In the second part of the course there is a presentation of the practical implementation of classroom activities suitable for the primary school years (plugged and unplugged work examples, classroom advice and assessment support). Although the lessons are specifically designed to fit the curriculum in Australia, anyone around the world can follow their freely available course.
