With AI being the buzz over the last year in all industries, have you wondered about how this could translate (in a positive way) to education? Florida 7th grade history teacher & AI enthusiast, Jack, shares the unique moment when he knew he wanted to be a teacher & the research he is doing to explore educators implementing AI in schools. With 7 years of experience as a middle school teacher, Jack shares some insights from avoiding burnout and how his curiosities have extended beyond his teacher role.

Jack’s passion for learning about new ways to support students and other teachers has evolved since he cofounded a social studies TPT resource page for other middle school history teachers. Since then, he has been exploring the ways AI can be used strategically to work smarter, not harder. He is still exploring the ways that AI becomes developmentally appropriate for students, and his cautious yet optimistic approach for educators is very encouraging.

This episode covers AI in the classroom, the key to avoiding burnout & loving what you do, & teaching while exploring other passions. Jack’s obvious motivation & joy in what he does is contagious & will make you want to open Chat GPT to explore extension activities as a classroom teacher. Tune in if you are looking for some new ideas around AI in the classroom, & stay for the tangible ways you can get started today!
