The curriculum development team at the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) has assembled a pedagogically powerful panel to provide insights and applications for Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools in both secondary and college-level economics classrooms. This PD session will objectively benefit economics educators by providing AI classroom applications, AI-enhanced and student-centered instructional strategies, and will facilitate a moderated discussion. An informed panel of educators will share ideas and take questions as a continuation of FEE’s NAEE Conference demonstration. Attendees will see the latest tools to enhance educator productivity and learning outcomes, for the sake of promoting economic literacy.
