Whitfield Takes the Lead at ISSL AI Event

Whitfield was thrilled to participate in a successful AI Quick Boost Event on Saturday, January 27, 2024  where over 50 dedicated educators gathered to explore the transformative power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in education. This event was a joint effort between technology directors from Viz, Miriam, MICDS, Whitfield, and ISSL (Independent Schools of St. Louis).

The AI Educator Quick Boost Event, held at Viz and sponsored by ISSL, brought together teachers and tech leaders from across the St. Louis region. They engaged in enlightening discussions, learning about innovative AI tools and their applications in the classroom setting.

The event witnessed the active participation of Whitfield School, with a significant presence and a remarkable presentation team. With multiple presenters from Whitfield School, each eagerly sharing the valuable resources we gathered with our fellow educators.

The atmosphere was electric, with everyone leaving feeling inspired and rejuvenated. We look forward to the next gathering, as we continue to explore the limitless possibilities of AI in education. Stay tuned for more exciting updates!
