African American History Meets AI In The 21st Century Classroom
April 5, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Faculty and student panelists will discuss how they are utilizing artificial intelligence to create instructional lesson plans from SPOHP’s UF’s Joel Buchanan African American Oral History Archive to make stories from the archive more accessible to scholars and K-12 students. Exploratory themes will be discussed on curriculum and the uses of local history, the creation of lesson plans that honor African American language, and the implementation of AI normalizing linguistic variations. This project is funded through the National Endowment for the Humanities funded collaboration between SPOHP, UF Libraries, UF Department of Linguistics, and the All Y’all Social Justice Collective titled, “Reanimating African American Oral Histories of the Gulf South.”
