COLLINS WEEKLY GROUP PLAN
Help a Classmate in Need
With Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the rise in popularity and access, we wanted to pass some information to you to help you engage in these conversations at home. Start with educating yourself and children about how AI works and how it may affect your lives. This includes understanding the potential benefits and risks of AI and its impact on various industries, such as healthcare, finance, and education.
Parents should also be aware of the potential bias and ethical concerns associated with AI systems and how they may affect marginalized groups. It is important for parents to teach their children to be critical thinkers and to question the information they receive from AI systems, just as they would with any other source of information.
Parents can also encourage their children to explore AI technologies and consider the potential career opportunities in this field. This can involve providing access to resources and tools that can help them learn more about AI, such as online courses or coding programs.
Overall, by staying informed and educating their children about AI, parents can help prepare them for a future where AI is likely to play an increasingly important role in our daily lives.
