Kevin Corbett hosts #txeduchat on Artificial Intelligence, Robots, and our Students
A former science teacher who believed in the power and possibility of online learning over two decades ago, he taught himself how to build courses in HTML on class intranets.
Kevin taught one of the first hybrid, educational technology courses for teachers, for the University of Washington. And, after building countless web pages and classes on the early world wide web, he now helps develop e-learning programs, consults on virtual training ‘best practices’ and has many interests in other internet and educational technology-related areas.
Kevin finds he’s now enjoying learning more from his children who are all deep into their own technology-related careers and entrepreneurial endeavors.
With two new grandchildren, he’s investigating more seriously the advancing new technologies in an effort to understand the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve happiness and success in a technological future. He’s certain that the ubiquitous nature of technology will have a considerable impact on a new generation. He believes that adults–educators, parents, and more, will be critical in mentoring young people as they navigate and work through all the changes, along with new moral and ethical decisions mankind has never had to deal with.
Sunday’s TXeduchat is intended to be a fun-filled hour to consider the possibilities and get us all thinking about how to future proof our students in a world where deep learning, automation, artificial intelligence, and robotics are accelerating.
