Iridescent Learning has launched a mentoring imitative on Artificial Intelligence and Education and is seeking engagement and participation of ASEE members in the AI-mentoring initiative that Iridescent recently announced at the UN AI for Good summit. They are looking for mentors who would be interested in learning about AI and supporting the participants of the AI Family Challenge – the first project-based AI program for 3rd-8th grade students and their parents.
NVIDIA is the lead sponsor, and they are seeking more funders and partner organizations at this early stage.
The benefit to ASEE members would be that they get to deepen their own understanding about prototyping AI-based products that tackle real-world problems. And at the same time they would be inspiring children and families to create AI-based prototypes that tackle meaningful problems. NSF HAS INQUIRED ABOUT ASEE MEMBERS WITH EXPERTISE IN THE APPLICATION OF AI TO EDUCATION; THIS COULD BE A DEMONSTRATION PROJECT.
