Artificial Intelligence

AI Summit

ATLE's AI Summit experience May 7 was a tremendous success. We brought together well over 100 stakeholders from across the province to explore AI in Education in Alberta. 

Because the topic was so timely and the conversation so pertinent, we decided to ask our presenters if we could share their resources with you on our website. Please explore their presentations, linked below, and feel free to use them as inspiration as you create your own support for your colleagues, crediting the creators appropriately.

A huge THANK YOU goes to our entire AI PLN, who over the 2023-2024 school year has met regularly to explore emerging AI topics, helping level up the expertise of our entire group across the province, co-create our shared AI compilation of resources, and form the planning committee that created the AI Summit.

A special thanks to Nancy Lake, David Hay, Sue Mylde, Thomas Rogers, Nicole Cunningham for their ongoing leadership contributions to the success of ATLE's AI PLN and AI Summit. If you would like to be part of the 2024-2025 AI PLN, show your interest by completing this form.

The AI PLN has been building capacity through conversation and resource sharing.

This co-created searchable, filtered Sheet of AI resources has been tagged to best support those of us exploring AI in education - and to support our AI PLN as we begin to develop resources.

We look forward to our last AI PLN meetup April 15 to share blog posts, and other documents created to help level us all up in our work in our districts supporting impactful and ethical use of AI in our schools.

We also look forward to sharing with you the upcoming look of the ATLE AI Summit, May 7 in Edmonton.
