  2. Teachable Machine: Explore how machine learning works. Teach a machine using your camera – live in the browser, no coding required. It learns by training and running neural nets right in the browser. Teach students about machine learning. 
  3. Quick, Draw!: Uses machine learning to learn what you’re drawing.
  4. Autodraw: Draw a picture and Autodraw converts it into clipart created by artists. 
  5. Mystery Animal: A Voice Experiment, it chooses an animal and plays 20 questions for you to guess what it is. 
  6. Story Speaker: Create a choose your own adventure-style story in Google Docs. It’s like you’re coding/creating an AI game run by Google Assistant.

How can AI/voice assistant help us right now?
  • Answering questions
    • what is the weather for tomorrow?
    • what is the capital of Alaska?
    • what is 37 times 414?
    • tell me a riddle.
    • Tell me something interesting.
    • set a ten-minute timer.
  • Adding to notes for later
  • Keeping us from doing repetitive stuff
What’s the future of AI/voice assistant in the classroom?
  • Setting expectations in the classroom
  • Let them play and understand what it is capable of but set meaningful expectations on how it will be used for learning, not just telling jokes.
  • Rotate the use a job/role for the class - AI Leader of the Day.

Most of us recognize that schools need to change to meet the demands of the information age, but we don't have many models to follow for making that change happen. In this episode, I interview Don Wettrick, who launched an innovation elective in his high school six years ago. He tells me how the program works, why all schools need an innovation class, and how you can start one in your school.

What do you want your life to look like? When you look back on it all at the end, what do you want to feel like you've accomplished? How do you want to have spent your time? What will be your legacy?

Those are deep questions for sure, and most of us just don't have the time or energy to try to answer them. It's not because we don’t care. We're just too tired to take a step back and try to figure out a better way. And yet, getting clear on what matters to you could change everything about the way you use your time and where you focus your energy.

Even though "there’s no tired like teacher tired," a few changes in your mindset and habits can totally transform that.  I created a free challenge called "Goodbye, Teacher Tired" with five of the most important things you can do to stop feeling tired all of the time and maximize your time, and energy and focus.

Listen in to get a summary of the five steps covered in the challenge. You can sign up for the challenge and participate in the discussion by visiting the original post here.
