Description

Current developments in technology are deeply affecting education. Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and 3D Printing are all drastically modifying students’ behavior and expectations in approaching learning and education.

Although we feel trapped in technology, sometimes, it also offers a positive and useful side to our lives. Having overcome the learning curve, technology allows for saving time, effort, and money, thereby helping teachers focus more on the students and their personal development.

This course will demonstrate how educational technologies connected to AI, AR, VR, and 3D- printing can help promote learning while lightening the workload on teachers’ shoulders.

Participants will be introduced to AI technology and related tools including ChatGPT. They will discover ways to exploit Artificial Intelligence for their aims in contrast to the media showing them as a threat to the traditional educational system.

In addition, participants will learn how to benefit from AR/VR technologies. As the devices for AR/VR are becoming cheaper and widespread among the young generations, these technologies are also increasing their popularity, and offer several app integrations for education.

Furthermore, participants will meet with 3D printing technology and have an opportunity to design their 3D models and print them.

All these innovative technologies will be presented using classroom implementations and examples from different levels: primary, middle, high school, and higher education. In short, teachers will see both theories behind these technologies and practice them through workshops.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to recognize different technologies and their use in education. They will update their teaching and keep up with the new trends by combining them with their classroom experience.
