  • From Bias to Awareness with AI

    How to introduce foul mouthed, drug peddling, racist AI into your classroom... today. There has been lots of interesting discussion around AI guardrails, ethical concerns, output, etc. The truth is that the majority of platforms aren't implementing stringent moderation oversight into their tools, and even if they were, automated oversight is fallible. Even if you check every input and output to the AI systems, you won't catch them all. But this post isn't about organizational steps. It's about how you position AI. This isn't a guide for implementation its a provocation for thought. 𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐭: Bias and racism exist in the world, in language and in AI systems 𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐭: Commercial AI systems are intentionally align to broadly acceptable social and political norms 𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐭: The most ubiquitous AI systems are often the least transparent, and are controlled by a very small group of people Note, this does refer to AI and not just Gen AI. So how does this discussion come into the classroom? In my English classes, we always spent a lot of time looking at media from different angles (audience, intent, bias, subversion, etc), by positioning AI as a media, students can reveal latent prejudice in systems used by millions. Working with schools and classes, as well as my own meanderings and confusions on LinkedIn, our findings have mirrored breaking news and research coming out of prestigious journals. AI allows us to bring the following provocations into classrooms: ► Given a name or ethnicity, what kind of criminal profile do different AI systems write? What does this same about its categorization and racial profilings? How might this affect user experiences? 𝘓𝘪𝘯𝘬𝘦𝘥𝘐𝘯 𝘗𝘰𝘴𝘵: 𝘛𝘳𝘺 𝘪𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧: ► Given the same essay and rubric but a different name (yes I know, don't submit PII, the idea is non-consequential data and its influences). There are ways to mitigate this, but maybe not eliminate it. 𝘓𝘪𝘯𝘬𝘦𝘥𝘐𝘯 𝘗𝘰𝘴𝘵: 𝘛𝘳𝘺 𝘪𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧: ► The Ultimatum Game - giving two users different personalities, what assumptions do AI systems make about their actions? What kind of narrative does it right? 𝘛𝘳𝘺 𝘪𝘵 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧: By positioning AI to be challenged, we can critically evaluate its responses as a media type. As AI grows more prevalent and pervasive, developing critical understandings of this new and highly influential media is essential. Ryan Tannenbaum is the owner of For.Education

  • A Guide to Online Job Alikes for Educators

    What Are Job Alikes? Job Alikes create opportunities for educators in similar roles across various schools to come together. These events are dedicated to exchanging insights, addressing common challenges, and discovering strategies relevant to their work. The goal is to foster an environment of peer learning, networking, and professional advancement. How to Organise Online Job Alikes The approach to organising an online Job Alike varies with the group's size and the inclusion of a keynote speaker. Below are streamlined strategies for different scenarios... For Small Groups: Format: Promote a single session with open dialogue. Agenda: Welcome and Introductions: 10 minutes Discussion/Activity: 40 minutes on a specific topic Networking: 10 minutes For Large Groups: Format: Implement a structured setup with breakout rooms. Agenda: Welcome: 5 minutes Keynote or provocation discussion: 20 minutes Breakout Sessions: 30 minutes, by interest, by specific role if relevant Group Sharing: 15 minutes Networking: 10 minutes With a Keynote: A keynote adds value by providing insights and sparking discussions. Agenda is similar to large groups, with a focus on the keynote presentation. Without a Keynote: Start with a discussion to engage participants immediately. Agenda can be adjusted for group size, focusing on initial sharing and discussions. What's a Provocation Discussion? An example of a provocation discussion for educators might challenge them with a bold statement like, "Traditional classrooms are obsolete in the digital learning age," to stimulate debate and reflection on the impact of technology in education. This approach encourages sharing diverse viewpoints and experiences, deepening understanding among participants. Key Recommendations: Engagement: Use interactive tools like polls and whiteboards. Flexibility: Adapt the agenda based on feedback. Follow-Up: Summarise the session, share resources, and encourage networking. EdEvents Groups can make use of the online group features for continued discussion and sharing of resources after the meeting. This can also encourage new group members to take part in future meet ups, as they immediately see the community collaboration. Several of the community groups in the EdEvents Groups directory are planning to host online Job Alikes. Online Job Alikes are an effective way to enhance professional development. By selecting the appropriate format, you can create a meaningful experience for educators, encouraging growth and community building.

  • Welcome MINDKORCS to the groups directory

    A new community group MINDKORCS (Mindful Korean Schools), led by members of Korea Council of Overseas Schools (KORCOS), is about to launch on EdEvents! Organised and run by international educators in South Korea, the group's vision is to establish and maintain a strong, collaborative community of members committed to: promoting the knowledge and practice of mindfulness in school communities; creating a community of practice to support educators in their personal development of mindfulness skills and; producing a wide range of mindfulness teaching resources that educators can draw on. Whilst the focus of the group is initially on supporting those in Korea, all EdEvents members interested in creating mindful school communities are welcome to join and participate in the regular meetings. Join the group and activate the group notifications to keep in touch with this developing community.
