Starting a new project in the midst of a pandemic was certainly not what anyone had in mind for AI@School but despite not being able to get together to exchange ideas face to face, the partnership is off to a great start. The insights and contributions from the consortium so far are so interesting it’s a wonder we get any work done, I have already fallen down numerous internet search rabbit-holes following a tip-off during a Zoom meeting or a post on our Mattermost channel. Did you know you can play Minecraft in virtual reality!? I do now.
During this first phase of the project we are collecting resources and working on a curriculum for teachers. Do please let us know if there is something we should consider including.
We are in the process of setting up this website and our social media channels but you can contact the coordinator by email angela [dot] gerrard [at] gmail [dot] com or follow @taccleprojects on Twitter.
