AACTE will continue its new Lunch and Learn Series on Wednesday, October 18, from 1:00 – 1:30 p.m. ET with Lesson Planning: Generative AI Tools for Teachers and Teacher Educators. Guy Trainin (University of Nebraska-Lincoln) will teach participants about various AI tools, their functionalities, and best practices so that these tools can enhance teaching and not just serve as a novel addition. Furthermore, he will discuss ethical considerations, such as data privacy and avoiding algorithmic biases, ensuring that the implementation of AI is not only effective but also responsible.

The evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) is leading to potential transformation in teaching methodologies. For educators, professional development in using AI for lesson planning is becoming a powerful collaborative tool. AI-powered tools can sift through vast amounts of data to provide customized lesson plans tailored to individual student needs, considering their learning needs, pace, and areas of interest. These tools can also predict learning outcomes, suggest resources, and even modify lesson plans in real time based on the student’s progress. By harnessing the power of AI teachers can shift from a one-size-fits-all model to a more personalized and adaptive learning approach.

While the potential of AI in education is vast, its successful integration depends mainly on the proficiency of educators in leveraging these tools while maintaining a critical stance.

While these advantages are promising, it’s crucial to approach the integration of AI with caution, ensuring that technology augments the teacher’s role while maintaining a critical stance and human touch in education.
