USING AI

To Move Beyond Individual Mastery and Toward Collaboration

EdTech Maryland Meetup

Free Virtual Event

Advances in AI techniques have created an opportunity to provide teachers and learners with the tools to move beyond individual mastery.

Join Drew Hampton, educational technology expert, and Phil Horwitz, Chief Architect at JBS Custom Software Solutions, for an exciting session where we share our insights and technology innovation for enhancing digital education in today's turbulent learning environment.

Wholesale shifts to distance learning have highlighted and exacerbated existing deficiencies in our education system to properly instill the habits of mind and discourse necessary for collaborative problem-solving. Learning technologies, in particular, have focused primarily on individual mastery and discrete knowledge components.

Though these have advanced impressively, they fail to leverage or advance the essentially collaborative nature of learning. Advances across a range of artificial intelligence techniques (e.g., natural language processing, adaptive instructional systems, affect detection) have created an opportunity to provide teachers and learners with the tools to move beyond individual mastery and start to establish procedural and interpersonal skills that can form the foundation for a standard of civil discourse.
