101 Creative ideas to use AI in education. A collection curated by #creativeHE.
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

This open crowdsourced collection presents a rich tapestry of our collective thinking in the first months of 2023 stitching together potential alternative uses and applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that could make a difference and create new learning, development, teaching and assessment opportunities. Experimentation is at the heart of learning, teaching and scholarship. Being open to diverse ideas will help us make novel connections that can lead to new discoveries and insights to make a positive contribution to our world. Ideas shared may be in its embryonic stage, but worth exploring further through active and creative inquiry.

This lesson centers around the How AI Works: Equal Access and Algorithmic Bias video from the How AI Works video series. Watch this video first before exploring the lesson plan.

In this lesson, students will practice cropping images to uncover the bias underlying the Twitter cropping algorithm. Then, students will read and watch a video about the discovery of this biased algorithm. Finally, students will discuss ways to recognize and reduce bias along with analyzing Twitter's response to the allegations of bias in their cropping algorithm.

This lesson can be taught on its own, or as part of a 7-lesson sequence on How AI Works. Duration: 45 minutes

This is an exploration of visual art forms and their cultural connections for the student with little experience in the visual arts. The course includes a brief study of art history and in depth studies of the elements, media, and methods used in creative process and thought. Visual and performing arts are part of the Humanities: academic disciplines that study the human condition and, in addition to the arts, include languages, literature, law, history and religion. This course will teach students to develop a five-step system for understanding visual art in all forms based on description, analysis, meaning, context and judgment.Login: guest_oclPassword: ocl

This activity explores what it means for a computer to be intelligent and introduces the topic of what a computer program is and how everything computers do simply involves following instructions written by (creative) computer programmers. Learners interact with a piece of paper that contains rules for playing a perfect game of noughts-and-crosses (tic-tac-toe). The activity contains some thought provoking (and humorous) discussion questions. Explanation, variations, extensions, and resources are included in the PDF.

Best Class / Worst Class: Setting Standards Collaboratively
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

The multi-lesson "Best Class/Worst Class" project provides a way for students and professor to set expectations for course performance collaboratively, while simultaneously modeling productive online interaction strategies. Students become more aware of their own learning process and the processes of those with whom they will be working, creating necessary bridges to successful collaboration. In addition, students are able to develop practical skills in navigating the online environment before being tasked with heavily-weighted course components.This project is designed to be implemented alongside discipline-specific course content.

The CS Open Educational Resource
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

Computer Science courses (COSC) have become a popular area of study from K-12 to higher education levels (i.e., community colleges and four-year institutions). For the past years, different educational approaches have been proposed to disseminate concepts in these areas (traditionally through books and online platforms such as wikis, websites, forums). Although there are several resources available to assist a student in learning tricks or "how-to" for specific items, some of them lack curricular guidance to lead to a constructivist learning approach.

Some of the other available resources rely on a strong mathematical background, which many potential computer science students might not have, discouraging students from pursuing a computer science or programming field, particularly from a K-12 environment and community colleges.

This project comprises two courses: Programming Fundamentals I, a.k.a., CS 1 (THECB: COSC 1436) and Programming Fundamentals II, a.k.a., CS 2 (THECB: COSC 1437). Additionally, we present modules on cybersecurity and data analytics to these two courses, two emerging areas in computing-related to these courses that are highly applicable in today's industry needs.

Although the COSC courses do not appear in the 2017-2019 THECB Most Transfer List, many institutions, including high schools and postsecondary schools, have adopted COSC 1436 and 1437, their core highly demanded courses. Furthermore, different independent school districts have a strong partnership with community colleges and four-year institutions, increasing the number of COSC 1436 and COSC 1437 sections across Texas. Therefore, we anticipate creating an OER that might have a significant impact in the next years.

Chatbots and Large Language Models
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

This lesson centers around the How AI Works: Chatbots and Large Language Models video from the How AI Works video series. Watch this video first before exploring the lesson plan.

Large Language Models (LLMs) generate new text. The text LLMs generate looks like a human might have written it because large language models are built based on large bodies of text, such as Wikipedia. In this lesson, students learn what an LLM is and how it works, then use an LLM to co-create a text with AI. Finally, the class wraps up with a discussion about whether or not LLMs are intelligent or creative.

This lesson can be taught on its own, or as part of a 7-lesson sequence on How AI Works. Duration: 45 minutes

Chemical Process Dynamics and Controls Textbook
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

This course uses an open textbook University of Michigan Chemical Engineering Process Dynamics and Controls. The articles in the open textbook (wikibook) are all written by teams of 3-4 senior chemical engineering students, and are peer-reviewed by other members of the class. Using this approach, the faculty and Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs) teaching the course act as managing editors, selecting broad threads for the text and suggesting references. In contrast to other courses, the students take an active role in their education by selecting which material in their assigned section is most useful and decide on the presentation approach. Furthermore, students create example problems that they present in poster sessions during class to help the other students master the material.

The Stanford History Education Group (SHEG) is a research and development group based in Stanford’s Graduate School of Education. In 2014, we set out to develop short assessments to gauge young people’s ability to evaluate online content. Our work was supported by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Spencer Foundation, and the Silver Giving Foundation.
Specifically, we sought to measure Civic Online Reasoning — the ability to effectively search for, evaluate, and verify social and political information online. We use this term to highlight the civic aims of this work. The ability to evaluate online content has become a prerequisite for thoughtful democratic participation.

This lesson centers around the How AI Works: Computer Vision video from the How AI Works video series. Watch this video first before exploring the lesson plan.

Students learn how computer vision works. They first look at optical illusions to identify the features of the drawing that their eyes noticed. Students watch a video explaining computer vision and how a computer "sees". They design an algorithm that uses a network to decide what number the seven segment display is displaying. Finally, students test their algorithm.

Rating
0.0 stars

This resource models a possible research unit for instructors interested in guiding students through contextual literary analysis. As such, this resource outlines strategies for delving into the biographical, historical, and cultural contexts of recommended mentor texts, such as ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and ‘Hills Like White Elephants’ by Ernest Hemingway. Additionally, this resource provides a suggested pacing for the unit as well as an outline and rubric for crafting and evaluating the final essay. By the end of this section, instructors will be equipped to design their own contextual analysis research unit that suits their class interests and needs.
