Through this training offer, the DGE intends not only to contribute to the dissemination of insights about the fascinating world of AI, but also to encourage the debate around the challenges and opportunities that AI may offer, not forgetting the ethical ones. In addition, the DGE wishes to encourage reflections, in order to better understand to what extent AI can enhance the educational process. Finally, this training course also aims to present examples for a workable integration of this theme into the very "heart" of the school: the classroom filled with students.

By addressing such an innovative theme as the use of Artificial Intelligence in education, this MOOC will certainly lead participants to contemplate, point out paths and raise awareness for the fact that AI will increasingly be present in our lives, whether we acknowledge it or not.

This course is mainly targeted to educators and teachers of all levels, school leaders and other professionals performing educational functions, but it is open to all those interested in the topic. 
The completion of this MOOC (by 75 per cent) will generate a certificate of conclusion of the course and a MOOC’s completion digital stamp will be sent to each participant.

You can register to and access the course on the NAU platform.
