Read here about our full webinar series on AI in the Classroom
In this third webinar, we will explore some of the AI impacts and issues relating to media literacy. Many of us are educators (in schools and communities, and among our peers) who strive to inform others about the aspects of media literacy. In 2023, a key part of the media
landscape is AI (an algorithms), and this impacts media industries and users in a myriad of ways. However, an important first step is to explore the question: What do we need to know? More specifically, in this session we will explore together what it means to be literate about AI and what should be a part of a media literacy curriculum to build this literacy. What key questions do today’s learners need to ask about media to get at AI? We will leave with specific learning objectives for AI literacy.
DAY: Thursday, May 4th, 2023

This new AI webinar series from the Media Education Lab explores the potential range of affordances and challenges associated with AI and its implementation as a tool for media education. In particular, the webinars will discuss the use of AI to enhance or hinder the educational experience, the impact of AI on teaching and learning, and the implications of AI-driven technologies such as search engines, chats, images, and videos. The discussion will delve into the ethical implications of AI in media education, including issues of privacy, data security, and copyrights.
