Abstract: Artificial intelligence (AI) is reshaping the workforce and society at large. Yet AI learning opportunities remain abstract and inaccessible for the youth. In this talk, I will present a co-design study with high school teachers that would eventually lead to the creation of StoryQ, a web-based text mining and narrative modeling platform. Specifically, we walked in-service teachers through our developed prototypes and learning activities and then interviewed them with a focus on their perceived usefulness of the technology and feedback for integrating the learning activities into their teaching. I will present our qualitative analysis of interview data with findings that could be insightful for integrating AI learning activities into high school classrooms.
