The AI-fluent SmartEducator:

As we enter the 3rd decade of the 21st Century, we are witnessing the impact of two revolutions, the 4th Industrial revolution ( Klaus Schwab) and the 4th education revolution ( Anthony Seldon). Sir Anthony discussed how Artificial Intelligence will change learning and teaching and the world into which our students will go. He called on educators everywhere to open their eyes to the fast approaching revolution in Artificial Intelligence, and asked educators to be  ready to embrace this evolution and shape AI to the best advantage of education and humanity as a whole. The new education policy 2019 has also acknowledged that it is being formulated at a time when an unquestionably disruptive technology AI has emerged. “Education is going to be the killer app for Deep Learning” said Terrence Sejnowski, Francis Crick Professor at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies and Director of the Computational Neurobiology Laboratory.

The best pro-active response of educators to this challenge is to seize the opportunity and become an AI-fluent SmartEducator. Such a person has a Deep Learning mindset ( well versed in deep learning techniques of Machine Learning as well as pedagogy of mastery learning and learning in depth). 

This program has been designed as a one month  long program structured as 4 weeklong courses and 2 weekend courses. 

The 4 weeklong courses are : 

AIFSE1: The Landscape of AI in education

AIFSE2: Data, Learning Analytics and Learning Algorithms

AIFSE3: Deep Learning for educators

AIFSE4: Mathematics for Machine Learning

The 2 weekend courses are: 

AIFSE5: Emerging Technologies for Educators

AIFSE6: Hands on experience with AI for learning

Course access and delivery model: 

  • A couple of days before the scheduled start of the course, a WhatsApp group will be created with the participants of the course as members. The group formation is not contingent on a minimum number enrolled. Even if there is only one person enrolled for a particular slot of a course, the course will be delivered to that person. 
  • I will be making a number of posts during the scheduled time slots. These posts may be in the form of text, images of PowerPoint slides, my audios, my videos or curated videos of others…
  • About 10 minutes before the scheduled time of my posts I will post a message to the effect that the session is about to begin
  • If any course participant  has a query, question or observation, they may go ahead and make it right there. If this concerns the whole group, please make it in the group. If it is meant as a message to me, then please send me a direct message rather than posting it in the group.
  • If I can make a quick short and effective response, without losing the thread of the conversation, I will respond right then, else I will pool all these and make a special post in response. 
  • Towards the end of the session I will share the PowerPoint slides as a pdf file that can be used in ways that the learners find convenient.
  • You may keep posting your queries and comments even after the scheduled time for my posts is over. All the posts and conversations ( including audio) will remain with you until you consciously and deliberately delete them. This is the greatest advantage of this method 

Enrolment and fee payment: 

  • As the courses are being delivered through WhatsApp the enrolment process is simply that of sending a WhatsApp message to Prof MM Pant at +919810073724. 
  • The fee for each of the 4 weeklong courses is Rs 2500/- , and for each of the 2 weekend courses is Rs 1000/- and can be easily remitted through PayTM to MM Pant ( mobile number : +919810073724).
  • For those who would rather pay into a Bank account, the relevant information is :
