The students actively participated in a hands-on session, interacting with the preliminary version of the Study Buddy AI assistant. They engaged in exploratory learning, generating questions, receiving feedback, and experiencing the Study Buddy’s conversational capabilities.
The workshop achieved its intended outcomes by familiarizing students with AI principles and showcasing the Study Buddy’s potential as an educational tool. The hands-on activity allowed participants to witness firsthand how AI can augment the learning experience, encouraging active engagement and critical thinking.
The Students Workshop on AI in Education held at Ellinogermaniki Agogi further solidified the importance of integrating AI into education. The insightful introduction by Pepi Stamouli and Vassilis Katsouros, followed by the hands-on Study Buddy interaction, provided students with a comprehensive understanding of AI’s capabilities and its role in shaping the future of learning.
