Sharing Topic: Blended Learning for AI Education
More than a year since the outbreak of COVID-19, K-12 education has much evolved, from class suspension to online class, from half-day to limited face-to-face class resumption, and now in mixed mode of both online and physical lessons. Teachers had to equip themselves with various online teaching skills, to cope with such a radical change. “Suspending classes without suspending learning” has been indeed testing the adaptability and capabilities of schools and teachers, when online classes are becoming the new normal.
Online classes at the moment could still cover and tackle regular curriculum, but most activities on and off campus have been greatly affected by the pandemic. For example, the recently prominent STEM education and AI education have been forced to scale down, postpone, or even cancel, due to the suspension of face-to-face classes. However, can teachers teach AI through online classes under the new normal? Or can students’ problem-solving skills and creative thinking be stimulated online too? This sharing invites everyone to explore together.
