Career Exploration and Impacts of AI Lesson plan with print Worksheet and Google Form Exit Ticket

Career Exploration and Impacts of AI for post secondary training, 2 year and 4 year degrees. Emphasis on continuing training or traditional education in STEAM careers whether it be an apprenticeship, certificate program, 2 year college, 4 year university or beyond. Emphasis on AI impacts in all fields. Combined Inventory of Me, AI’s Impact, and Roadmap to My Dream Job into a WS (2-3 day portfolio-like). They fill it in along with slides as they go.

Best Quesadilla

I changed the food to be more culturally relevant to our school and our New Mexican culture. Instead of designing an algorithm for the best PB&J, this lesson tasks students with planning the best quesadilla. Our school population is majority Hispanic students who live in Albuquerque and mostly come from the South Valley. They will have more of a connection to quesadillas than to PB&J sandwiches. Optimizing a quesadilla algorithm for stakeholders may be more relevant to their culture and family.

Quesadilla Ethical Matrix

For this lesson I changed the food listed to quesadillas (building on the previous lesson, Algorithms as Opinions), I also added a formative assessment to better help students connect to stakeholders in their lives and communities. Students who participate in the previous lesson (Algorithms as Opinions) will be able to carry it forward into a real-world connection by thinking about their out-of-school activity, the relevant stakeholders and their values.

Best Bocadillo

Making the best sandwich instead of PB & J for those who have not experienced PB & J. The reason I made this change is because there is a large Hispanic population in my area who do not make sandwiches with peanut butter and jelly and so a sandwich in general is more relevant to students of diverse populations such as Latinx, Asian, etc.

Introduction to bias for ELLs

The change made was adding an introduction to bias, distinguishing between facts and opinions, perspectives, and biases, tailored for ESL, bilingual, and regular students to comprehend bias in AI. This modification was designed to provide students with varying language proficiencies and backgrounds a foundation in understanding bias within the context of artificial intelligence, fostering inclusivity and equitable learning experiences.

Classifying living things

The adjustment involved incorporating a lesson of classifying living things to illustrate decision trees, crafted for ESL, bilingual, and regular students to comprehend decision trees in AI. This adaptation aimed to offer students with various language proficiencies and learning styles an accessible means to grasp decision-making processes, promoting inclusivity and enthusiasm for decision trees concepts.

Decision Trees - Alien Gathering

Alien Gathering is a modification of the lesson plan 0.4 Decision Trees. In this lesson students begin with an activity in which a decision tree is made for a "Family" of aliens. This activity is intended to be used in one of two ways. It can be used as a substitute for the activity "Pastaland" or as an additional lesson activity used prior to the "Pastaland" activity.

Neural Network Escape Room

Students will create an escape room on google slides that teaches neural networks. (To be done after teaching the Neural Network lesson)

Redesign Instagram Lesson Plan - Alternative

In this lesson, students will redesign the Instagram recommendation algorithm to meet their needs and reduce bias. This is a culminating project that can span several days of work and spark student reflection on lessons learned from the curriculum.

Connecting Teachable Machines with Experimental Design

This activity was designed as a science integration extension that has students reflect on the process of using Teachable Machines through guiding questions making connections between their experience and experimental variables.

What is AI? Kahoot Teacher Made

This Kahoot series can be used in situations where students need to independently complete the introductory "What is AI?" (0.1) lesson, such as before a workshop that focuses on a specific AI tool. It walks them through the slides to learn about AI, and then practice distinguishing technologies that are AI from ones that are not AI, including explanations for each. Students can complete the "advanced" slides after they do the "introduction" ones, to get more practice.

Decision Trees-Breakfast World

Pasta is so delicious but not all students are familiar with the different types of pasta. Students will have the opportunity to sort popular breakfast items that they or their peers eat at school in order to determine their favorite breakfast food. As an extension, students will sort desserts and apply their mathematical knowledge of prime numbers and the real number system.

AI or Not ? Teacher Made

This is a modified Version of the AI or Not resources to include some more current and student friendly images.

Neural Networks - Unplugged

Use post-it notes or can use the document to print 2 sided (hopefully it lines up correctly) to use to write words on and feed forward to work through the Neural Network. Makes working with a large group of students easier to handle because everyone is included. I also printed the network handout for the students to track how the words flowed through and kept record of it on the whiteboard.
