About Me

As a learning designer and inclusive educator, I wanted to explore the potential of AI in education and learning. However, I faced several challenges in creating a portfolio that effectively showcased my explorations. Firstly, I lacked the technical knowledge required to develop AI models and algorithms. Secondly, I struggled to find relevant datasets to train my models on. Finally, I was unsure of how to present my findings in an engaging and informative manner. To overcome these challenges, we formed a team consisting of 4 members - all 4 of us were eager to explore AI tools that enhance education so we set sail in our playful exploration. We began by discussing the problems we each wanted to focus on. With a broader theme of inclusivity, I turned my focus to self-dialogue and communication within inclusive spaces.
