Apply for the ISTE-GM AI Explorations and Their Practical Use in K-12 School Environments program: Spring 2021 Cohort - March 8 - May 2, 2021
The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) has developed a best-in-class professional learning program funded by General Motors, which cultivates future AI programmers and provides powerful professional learning for educators to support student-driven AI explorations. In the first 3 years of this collaboration, the ISTE-GM AI Explorations program served over 800 educators in the US and in US international schools around the world.
This year, ISTE is inviting school or district teams to enroll 3 - 6 educators in the 2021 cohort of ISTE’s AI Explorations and Their Practical Use in K-12 School Environments program at no charge!
Supported by an ISTE coach, school and district teams can collaborate to complete our PD program focused on the latest in artificial intelligence for education that includes:
- Access to the 8-week, 15-hour Artificial Intelligence Explorations and their Practical Use in School Environments online course, which will be completed as a team with three course webinars (kick-off, mid-point, and wrap-up) and weekly submissions from March 8 - May 2, 2021.
- Access to our AI online community and webinar series where educators can connect with other learners and experts throughout the year.
- Opportunity to provide input on future ISTE AI offerings through program evaluation surveys.
- Opportunities for continued connection after the course.
Upon successful course completion, participants will also receive a one-year ISTE membership. 10 participants will additionally be selected to receive a free registration and present at the ISTE 2021 Conference.
Applications should be submitted by the February 28, 2021 deadline. Priority acceptance will be given to school and district teams in Michigan, Texas, and California as well as to schools and districts in any state serving underrepresented student populations. Any remaining spots will be filled by other qualified teams in the US, US territories, and US international schools. Late applications will be considered only if space is available. We believe spots for this prestigious course may fill quickly, so please apply early.
*Note: Team members do not need to be current ISTE members to apply or participate.**
