Six teachers from St. Vrain Valley School District returned to the classroom this week, once again becoming students themselves in order to learn leading-edge technology from University of Colorado Boulder education researchers.
The three-day course, which ran Monday through Wednesday at the district’s Innovation Center, marks the start of SVVSD’s participation in the $20 million iSAT project funded by the National Science Foundation and based locally at the University of Colorado Boulder’s Institute of Cognitive Science. iSAT stands for Institute for Student-AI Teaming, where “AI” refers to artificial intelligence and “teaming” refers to collaborative small group interactive learning.
CU Boulder is one of nine universities around the nation participating in the five-year project, which launched in 2020. Denver Public Schools is also participating in affiliation with CU Boulder. Colorado State University is another coalition university.
