Artificial intelligence in education – Pécs hosts regional ProSuli event

The first ProSuli Teachers’ Day educated teachers about the practical application of ChatGPT   
The first regional ProSuli Teachers’ Day focusing on artificial intelligence was held in Pécs in April this year, with the participation of more than 20 schools. Since 2015, Yettel’s ProSuli digital education program has been actively supporting schools and teachers across the country to use digital tools in the most effective way enabling them to work with cutting edge methods.

Teachers in a region meet face-to-face for the first time

Each month, ProSuli focuses on a different topic in the digital world. Artificial intelligence is one of the hottest topics at the moment, and its role in education offers many exciting opportunities. This was the theme of the first Teachers’ Day in Southwest Hungary held at the Cserepka School in Pécs. The participating teachers came from more than 20 schools and met face-to-face for the first time to gain practical knowledge together.

Among other things, the event focused on sharing practices that can make everyday teaching more enjoyable for students and teachers alike. The Teachers’ Day included two presentations and a workshop on how to integrate artificial intelligence into the classroom. Teachers were also provided with general best practices for using AI-based applications.

Practical knowledge is the key

The joint workshop focused on two language model-based software, ChatGPT and Gemini, which many of the participants had never used before. While implementing different ideas in the classroom is often a challenge for teachers, the workshop also discussed how AI can simplify processes.

“The alternatives offered by artificial intelligence are new to many people, so many questions were raised about unknown aspects. Creating concrete teaching materials generates practical knowledge that teachers can adapt to their own daily routines. During the program, language test questions were created using different images and new materials were generated for textbooks, mainly related to mathematics and physics,” said Andrea Tóth, organiser responsible for the South West Hungary region of ProSuli. AI can also be used to create lesson plans and draft presentations, and participants were given the opportunity to test these using the platform.

In the 2023/24 school year, the ProSuli Ambassadors program will place even greater emphasis on supporting teachers, and AI will be an integral part of this. Expanding the knowledge of teachers is also an opportunity to provide a higher level of motivation for students, which is what topical and interesting subjects like AI are all about. The Ambassadors have weekly office hours with Andrea Tóth available on Mondays between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. for those interested from the South West Hungarian region. More details:
