Whalley Computer Associates (WCA) - AI with EQ: Rethinking Artificial Intelligence and its Role in Students’ Digital Well-being

Cries for help often start with a whisper. Students are growing up in unprecedented times, and it’s more important than ever for them to receive support early on. But how do you know if a student’s struggling? It’s tough for many to open up, but in today’s digital world, the data’s out there. Students leave digital footprints that traverse the internet; from Facebook to Google Drive to Search, small signs can lead to major findings when all the pieces of a puzzle are put together. Today, many schools use AI to flag students who need immediate help. AI plays a critical role here -- but it can do more. As a student’s bad day becomes a student’s bad month, AI can correlate concerning activities and alert a student’s support network, giving them invaluable insight into a student’s well-being and allowing for early action. Join our discussion to learn more about how AI can empower educators with the ability to assess the well-being of their students and get them early support. Purpose & Objectives As a result of attending this session, participants will: 1. Learn the latest trends in how students are coping in a world that was turned upside down by a global pandemic 2. Review how AI’s been used to assess students’ digital well-being to date 3. Reflect on new ways that AI can empower educators to be more proactive in ensuring the health of their students 4. Leave with ideas on how AI can be implemented at their school to ensure students’ digital well-being
