Kids Code Jeunesse Free Webinars

In partnership with Kids Code Jeunesse, TESIC will be offering 2 free webinars for NLTA members! There will be two separate sessions held on Saturday, February 20th and lead by KCJ Facilitator & Community Developer, Kyla Stratton (@Kyla_KCJ). You are welcome to register for both or either session.

Session 1: Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the Classroom - Saturday, Feb 20th, 10-11:30 am 

This workshop will introduce educators to the concepts behind AI through computational thinking, interactive games, and activities. The workshop equips educators with the tools and knowledge needed to understand what AI is, how it affects our daily lives, and how it shapes our online experiences.

Participants will train their own AI system using text and images to discover strategies for building a successful model. They will identify potential areas of bias when training an AI system, what this can do to the results, and why it is essential to be aware of these biases.

This workshop is offered free of charge through funding from the federal government's CanCode program.

Session 2: Bring Data Science to your school with the #kids2030 Challenge - Saturday, Feb 20th, 1-2:30pm

Introducing the #kids2030 Challenge! Get to know the challenge, its activities & learn how to use data science to prevent plastic pollution.

The #kids2030 Challenge is an annual learning journey that teaches young people digital skills by applying them to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In 2020, the first challenge is all about preventing plastic pollution (SDG12: Responsible Consumption & Production) by applying data science to the problem - and coming up with some innovative solutions. The challenge is open to 7 - 17 year olds from all around the world.

In this session, we’ll teach the teachers about the #kids2030 Challenge, its activities and the bigger conversations it can start in your classrooms. We have 10 years left to achieve the SDGs - so what’s stopping us from getting started?

This workshop is offered free of charge through funding from the federal government's CanCode program.
