TASA members are invited to join us at 1:30 p.m, Tuesday, April 9, for a free live virtual event on “Learning & Leading in the World of AI” with 2024 TASA txedFest keynote speakers George Couros and A.J. Juliani. The online event will be moderated by Jill Siler, TASA Deputy Executive Director, Professional Learning.

There are many obstacles and opportunities with artificial intelligence (AI), and it has the possibility to change the way learning happens both in and out of school forever. How do we lead with these emerging technologies while still focusing on curiosity, developing wisdom, and embracing our humanity? In this free live virtual event with George Couros and A.J. Juliani, we will discuss how we can use these technologies while giving practical examples and opportunities to utilize AI in our own practice. We’ll help you guide staff and students to leverage AI for better learning experiences and innovative opportunities in our changing world.
