HAILEY: YOUR GUIDE TO HAILEYBURYX AI
Hailey is a digital person. She is a sophisticated AI who can answer your questions and recommend things for you to learn.
She will be your guide to the AI microcourses.
We've split the microcourses into several groups. You can start anywhere and do the courses in any order, but we recommend you study the first course in each group before completing the rest.
You can ask Hailey for suggestions about this too.
PEDAGOGY, NOT TECHNOLOGY
Haileybury has always embraced technology for teaching and learning.
We see ourselves as innovators. High-speed WiFi, laptops and tablets, video and cloud-based services, along with our school-wide LMS Canvas, are all now part of our students’ everyday learning experiences - especially now as we teach remotely.
But the latest technology is not what matters.
What is important is technology that meets the needs of students and teachers. Technology that helps deliver outstanding learning experiences that fuel academic excellence.
