PASS Ethics and Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence (AI) is all around us, offering an exciting innovative way for students and teachers to explore the world. As AI becomes increasingly more common in technology applications, we need to better understand how it may affect our lives. Across all stages of AI development applying an ethical lens helps us ensure that AI is used for good and benefits all people, not disadvantaging or causing harm to particular groups. While AI has its benefits, it also has its challenges and issues.
The course will use practical, freely available, online AI tools to enable students to build and test AI models to better understand machine learning, a subset of AI. Students will participate in this short course to learn about AI. After completing the course they will be able to apply their knowledge to a design challenge.

Exploring our World supports students to learn how to use Google Earth to tell a story that’s important to them. A series of activities show students how to access and use the different features and functionality in Google Earth, using examples from PNG and Australia. The activities develop STEM skills and important capabilities for the future as students learn to use Google Earth as a tool for finding geographic knowledge, exploration and storytelling. Students will be supported to develop a Google Earth Storytelling Project to tell a ‘getting to know you’ story of their choosing (our example is the story of the Kokoda Track in PNG!).
