Developing AI literacy in the classroom and beyond

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 7th Mar 2024

 Free

This panel, hosted by LSE Data Science Institute, LSE Digital Skills Lab and LSE100, will bring together academics, practitioners and industry leaders to discuss strategies and interventions for developing AI literacy in their organisations. Beyond simply understanding AI technologies and how they work, AI literacy involves acquiring essential skills and competencies which are key for using AI-driven technology effectively, viewing these technologies critically, and questioning their design and implementation. While some might associate AI literacy with professional competence, its importance extends to critical thinking and understanding the impacts AI is having on the world around us.  

Throughout the discussion, the panel will consider different trajectories of AI literacy development, particularly focusing on non-technical experts for whom AI will be a crucial part of their everyday work. How do we develop early AI literacy in the classrooms of schools and universities? How can the public sector develop AI literacy amongst civil servants? When and how should organisations across industries implement training and development for AI literacy in their teams?  

The panel will draw on their extensive experience across a range of fields to offer concrete recommendations for the development and delivery of AI literacy tools in different settings, providing a useful roadmap for audience members to apply to their own contexts. Key takeaways from the panel will include practical steps and strategies for supporting AI literacy in diverse teams.
