This special mini episode briefly introduces some AI resources that might help in the classroom. Nina hears from Harvey Spencer, ex-teacher and host of the podcast AI for Teachers based in Australia. Harvey recommends starting the integration of AI into your practice by reflecting on the challenges you want to address with AI, then picking the right solution for you.
