When Worlds Collide: The Intersection Between Thoughtful Pedagogy and AI in the Classroom 


Thursday, October 5, 2023

12:00 PM PT/ 3:00 PM ET

At the intersection of thoughtful pedagogy and powerful AI in the classroom lives an untapped and relatively unknown transformative technology called instructional AI. Instructional AI enables new forms of learning in which constructive AI feedback loops promote mastery-based learning that teaches students how to write and think, never writing or thinking for them.

We invite you to join us for this engaging webinar, where you’ll gain insights into the influence that the constructive interaction of AI and effective pedagogy can have in the classroom. In an era where it’s extremely easy to generate text, it’s paramount to help students build foundational critical thinking and metacognitive skills, and more importantly, help them develop the confidence and motivation to express their unique voice.

During our time together, our experts will delve into the mechanics of how instructional AI dynamically improves the core principles of WICOR® (Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading) in a truly transformative fashion. Leave with an invaluable repertoire of pedagogically endorsed strategies, poised to harness AI's potential and steer your students toward unprecedented heights in the classroom. This is your pathway to a future where education is enriched, empowered, and elevated through the synergy of technology and pedagogy.


You’ll walk away understanding:
