Recently, an in-person session on the use of Artificial Intelligence in the field of education in institutes and colleges was held at the Vicálvaro campus of the URJC.


This initiative is part of the course “Artificial Intelligence: Basic Didactic Activities for All Ages and Subjects”, taught by the Community of Madrid in collaboration with the URJC.

The course, in its second edition, is intended for non-university teachers and aims to provide them with the necessary skills and knowledge about artificial intelligence, thus facilitating the inclusion of activities based on this technology in their classes. Participation in this edition exceeds 120 teachers, covering all pre-university educational stages and various subjects.

The session was inaugurated by David Cervera Olivares, General Director of Bilingualism and Quality of Teaching of the Community of Madrid; César Cáceres, Vice Chancellor of Transformation and Digital Education and Artificial Intelligence of the URJC; and Gregorio Robles, course coordinator at the URJC. The three highlighted the relevant role of AI in our society and the importance of teachers being trained in this subject.

During the day, prominent professors from the URJC, such as Jesús María González Barahona, who spoke about generative models of Artificial Intelligence; or María Zapata and Gregorio Robles who presented different research projects carried out at the University on Computational Thinking and Artificial Intelligence such as CoTEDI or FAIaS.

In addition, the session included the participation of primary teachers such as Chema González, ICT Coordinator and Early Childhood Education Teacher at the CEIP Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba, and Jorge Lobo Martínez, teacher at the CEIP Lope de Vega. These teachers shared their experiences and projects carried out with AI in their educational centers, which include everything from the development of applications for the detection of animals and botany, to initiatives aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) to support people with disabilities and suicide prevention.

This collaboration between the Community of Madrid and the URJC took place on May 13 and represents a significant effort to promote training in artificial intelligence among teachers, promoting a more innovative education adapted to the technological challenges of the XNUMXst century.
