Teachers Learn How AI Can Help In Class

Teachers from Jersey primary and secondary schools have been hearing how Artificial Intelligence could change how they work.

Digital Jersey has hosted the sessions for educators to explore the opportunities presented by AI, as well as the challenges they could bring.

The tech academy showed teachers AI tools that could save them time with lesson planning and marking.

The event also covered how teachers can support students to use AI responsibly and safely in their learning,

Rory Steel, Head of the Digital Jersey Academy, says there are undoubtedly opportunities within teaching where AI can play a hugely valuable part.

But , he says, it needs to be done well, recognising the risks, challenges and ethical issues it brings.

"We are starting to see schools in Jersey use AI in different ways, but use is at different stages.

These sessions aimed to give local teachers, who are notoriously time-poor, a good platform to explore how AI could support their work and enhance the learning experience of students, outlining a number of practical steps they could take.

I very much hope this will be the first of many sessions where we can bring teachers together to explore the significant opportunities presented by AI."

The events were held in collaboration with Skills Jersey and the Department for Children, Young People, Education and Skills (CYPES).
