ISTE. Jul. 2024. 150p. pap. $34.99. ISBN 9798888370353.
This book offers helpful strategies for teaching about artificial intelligence in classrooms across all grade levels and subject areas. Poth discusses how technology impacts society, and addresses teaching digital citizenship, bias, and ethics issues connected with AI. Assessments, ideas for lessons, class activities, and topics related to AI for class discussion are also included, along with thorough discussions of Generative AI and ChatGPT. An appendix of sample lesson ideas for all grades includes an interesting high school lesson about healthcare applications of AI and more. This book will be invaluable to school librarians and classroom teachers seeking to learn more about AI and to introduce this subject area to learners. Though the field of AI is vast, new, and emerging, Poth breaks it down into manageable and understandable parts and provides teachers with effective ideas about how they can immediately teach and apply AI concepts in their classrooms. Real-world applications of AI are also presented. Since the applications are not limited to one subject area or grade level, they are useful as a practical tool for teaching AI to a wide range of teachers, learners, school librarians, and anyone seeking to expand their knowledge of AI and AI instruction, and to add AI resources to their school library.
VERDICT While it may quickly become somewhat dated, this is a helpful resource for ways to incorporate teaching AI into any classroom, grade level, or subject area.
