Teaching Prompt Engineering in the Classroom

Read here about our full webinar series on AI in the Classroom 

In this fourth webinar, we will explore the use of AI in K-12 education. In today's fast-paced and technology-driven world, prompt engineering has become an essential skill for students to develop. This session will provide educators with practical strategies and resources to teach prompt engineering in their classrooms by leveraging various prompt engineering frameworks and strategies such as Prep and Edit, and the SPACE framework to build critical thinking and analysis skills. Through hands-on activities and real-life examples, participants will learn how to guide their students to identify and analyze different types of prompts, to develop effectives questions and refine those questions to get the results they are looking for, and to think critically about the use of AI in teaching and learning.
