Join CampGPT for ELA to learn more about the responsible implementation of Generative AI. You will get hands-on experience into how language-based tools can be leveraged to support ELA instruction.


    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • ABE English language arts teachers of all levels

In these CampGPT for ELA sessions, you will explore the application of generative AI (GAI) tools to meet the specific needs of the ELA classroom. Learn about generative AI through a balanced lens, exploring both the potential of using GAI to support teachers and learners, along with the pitfalls that it introduces.

In the first session, we will introduce “camp rules'' intended to guide us in the ethical application of GAI. We’ll also learn practical and effective strategies for prompting language-based tools like ChatGPT to develop resources that address the specific needs of ELA teachers and learners. Between the two sessions, campers are encouraged to complete the practicum component to apply their new skills in the use of a GAI-enabled tool to support ELA instruction and reflect on the output.

The second session will include a short showcase in which fellow ELA educators will share their obstacles, reflections, and successes. Then, we’ll shift our perspective toward ELA students and brainstorm ways that we can integrate GAI digital skill sets into ELA teaching and learning.

CampGPT is an informative, hands-on, and collaborative opportunity for ELA instructors. 

Participants will receive 4 PD hours in LACES upon completion of this session.

Please note: You cannot access this session from the SABES website. You will receive an email from Zoe Reinecke of the ELA PD Center 1–2 days before the session with instructions on how to access the Zoom session.
