We would like to share with you the abstract for our keynote speaker at this year's conference:

ʻAina, AI, and Next Generation Science Teaching

We are excited to hear from Dr. Gloria Niles as our Keynote Presenter,

Gloria Y. Niles Ph.D., Director of Online Learning, University of Hawaiʻi System

 The abstract for her exciting talk:

In this keynote presentation, we will explore the intricate interplay between the wisdom of the land, the advancements in artificial intelligence, and the timeless qualities of human intellect. Drawing from both historical lessons and current realities of AI, this exploration will underscore the potential of intelligence augmentation, a symbiotic integration of the innate intelligence of Hawaiʻi’s rich environment, the distinct attributes of human cognition, and the promising capabilities of AI when harmoniously steered by human insight. As educators at the forefront of next generation science teaching, this session aims to equip attendees with a broader understanding of the vision of how to weave the threads of ʻAina, human ingenuity, and AI into a cohesive fabric of innovative education in Hawaiʻiʻ.

Please share widely this exciting opportunity to gather with Hawai'i Science educators.
