A.I. in the Classroom: Building a More Accessible Future
Presented by Barbara Kenny, Client Success Manager at Packback
Packback is an AI-supported platform designed to build intrinsic motivation and support improvements in curiosity, communication skills, and critical thinking. Packback is a space where students of all abilities and backgrounds are free to explore the content they learn in class in a way that spans outside the boundaries of textbooks, lecture halls, and online sources.
Packback is deeply committed to maintaining accessibility and inclusion on our platform to create an environment where every student can explore their curiosity. Packback places students in the driver's seat, instead of just focusing on memorizing facts, students get to ask the questions, engage with their classmates, and take their curiosity to new heights.
In this session, we will provide a brief overview of the platform and pedagogy, a demonstration of the A.I. coaching students receive when using Packback, discuss how Packback’s pedagogy of student-driven inquiry empowers all students, and dive into the various accessibility features within our platform.
