The rapid emergence of artificial intelligence tools like ChatGPT has the potential to fundamentally transform the way people think, create, and solve problems. For schools, artificial intelligence poses a myriad of challenges as well as opportunities. Join us for a lively discussion of cutting-edge research into student use and perspectives on A.I. to inform effective A.I. policies and practices.

In this presentation and interactive discussion with Challenge Success co-founder, Denise Pope, Ph.D., and School Design Partner, Drew Schrader, M.Ed., we will share what we know about belonging, cheating, and the potential implications of ChatGPT and artificial intelligence for schools.

A recording of the event will be sent to all registrants on November 30th.
