Nurturing Computational Thinkers for an AI-Powered Future


Join us for an interactive session delving into the transformative potential of generative AI in education and the critical role computational thinking plays in this new learning context. Through a collaborative learning experience led by educators, participants will explore computational thinking skills that cultivate agile, adaptive, and conceptually complex thinkers, enabling them to navigate the ever-evolving technological landscape. We will engage in thoughtful discussions with organizational leaders from across the education ecosystem on the implications for the future of school.
