This professional learning setting will delve into the emerging field of generative artificial intelligence (AI) and its potential impact on education. Educators will explore the fundamental concepts behind generative AI, its applications, and how it can transform teaching and learning experiences in the classroom.
The workshop will begin by providing an overview of generative AI, explaining its capabilities and the underlying technologies, such as deep learning and neural networks. Educators will gain insights into how generative AI models, like ChatGPT, can generate human-like text, facilitate creative expression, and assist in problem-solving tasks.
The session will focus on exploring the practical applications of generative AI in the educational context. Participants will discover how generative AI can support personalized learning by generating tailored educational content, adapting to individual student needs, and providing real-time feedback and guidance.
The workshop will also address ethical considerations associated with generative AI in education. Educators will engage in discussions about responsible AI usage, privacy concerns, and the importance of human oversight in the classroom. They will explore strategies for promoting critical thinking and digital literacy skills to help students navigate and critically evaluate AI-generated content.
Furthermore, participants will learn how to integrate generative AI tools into their teaching practices effectively. They will explore practical examples and case studies of how generative AI can enhance creativity, facilitate collaborative projects, and support innovative assessment methods.
By the end of the workshop, educators will have a deeper understanding of the potential benefits and challenges associated with generative AI in education. They will be equipped with strategies and resources to leverage generative AI tools effectively and ethically, empowering them to adapt to the evolving landscape of educational technology.

Video-Recorded Virtual (Zoom) Sessions and Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Recorded Session: As an added value, all virtually-delivered programs are video recorded and accessible to our workshop registrants and Professional Learning Consortium Members subsequent to the session. Therefore, each virtually-delivered workshop and webinar will now have Zoom’s Recording Disclaimer enabled by default. With this feature, attendees will receive a notification when a recording starts or if they join a session that is already being recorded. The participant can then consent to stay in the session and be recorded or choose to leave the session altogether.
Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Virtually-Delivered Session: Actively engaging in Zoom sessions is important. Participants may have concerns, however, of a Zoom session recording capturing their participation. Meeting hosts or instructors are taking steps to minimize this concern. In addition to the consent, participants can also use the following steps and features to take control of what is shared when a session is being recorded.
- Change your participant name displayed in Zoom (e.g. only use your first name, replace your name)
- Disable your video
- Mute your audio
- Do not communicate via the chat feature
- Do not upload an identifiable profile photo
Please refer to Zoom’s Attendee Controls for more information on how to use these features.
