Six things teachers need to know about artificial intelligence

Six things teachers need to know about artificial intelligence

 

This course is based on an article that was published by Dr. Samia Kazi  in the Blue DOT (The UNESCO Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development (MGIEP). 

Why is it important for early childhood teachers to learn more about AI? 

AI is not just a robotics class that primary or secondary class children attend. Scientists are developing applications that bring AI to the hands of very young children. And waiting until a child is in school for us to prepare them to deal with AI might be too late. When early childhood teachers are armed with the knowledge and skills, they are better prepared. And who better to understand developmentally appropriate practice than early childhood educators? At what age are children bound to get personalized attention and tailor-made experiences to their abilities. Before they get assigned a desk in a classroom, they need to become critical thinkers and start creating an area in their brains to welcome more advanced learning later.

ICT Development & Online Learning for Early Years Centers

ICT Development & Online Learning for Early Years Centers

 

In this new world, the use of technology has become a daily necessity for all forms of communication and learning. Most schools are now using online learning, and will continue long into the future, either fully or at least as part of the learning process and curriculum. Therefore, as Early Years providers, we need to look at the implications and needs of the children as they start their education journey. Many people shy away from the use of tablets, smart boards and other forms of electronic learning, but we need to look at the schools and prepare the children for what they will be doing in the future. Let’s face it, most children nowadays are practically born with a tablet or phone in their hand, and most of them can use them much more efficiently than us!

The use of technology must be embraced and used as an advantage to learning. This does not mean that we ignore or forget the practical and physical ways either, but the way of learning will benefit if we find a way to merge them together and create something even more useful and wonderful.

A.I. and Early Childhood Education

A.I. and Early Childhood Education

 

What will education look like in the next 50 years? Why are we talking about early childhood education in the age of artificial intelligence? 

Before covid, we would often think of ourselves separate from artificial intelligence, and the term AI might have even been considered scary to some. 

But turbulent times have catapulted us to the future, it seems, and here we are coining the terms AI with early childhood education; this day is here. 

But what I believe is that it's not about teaching young children about what computers are or what they can do. It's about teaching them what it can’t— having a human heart, ethics, social, emotional intelligence, and the appropriate child tech tools. And working in partnership with all stakeholders as one united team, be it parents, teachers, policymakers alike.
