3 AI Tips for School Leaders

Tackle Tricky Emails

Navigating the intricacies of email communication can be daunting, especially when dealing with sensitive matters. AI chatbots, such as Claude, offer a solution by assisting in drafting thoughtful and appropriate responses. If you’re not sure how to respond to an email, ask a chatbot for help.

What Does It Look Like to Tackle Tricky Emails?

Open up a chatbot like Claude and describe the type of email you want to write. For example, you might say, “I received an email from a parent who is upset because they think we didn’t give them enough chances to volunteer for a field trip. Draft a response to this email that acknowledges their concern with space for me to add information about an upcoming school event.”

Empower Your Teachers

By introducing AI-powered educational tools, school leaders can provide teachers with resources to enhance their teaching methods. Tools that leverage artificial intelligence certainly offer many options for teachers. These platforms can help with creating interactive lessons, providing real-time feedback, and much more.

How Can You Empower Your Teachers?

Explore a few AI-powered educational tools like Diffit, Brisk Teaching, or Conker and choose one to introduce to your teachers. Provide an idea on how to use it, or you can also extend an invitation to a lunch and learn where they can explore together.

Gather Ideas for a Newsletter

Compiling engaging and relevant content for newsletters is often a challenging task. Generative AI simplifies this process by generating ideas tailored to your audience and the season. Use generative AI to gather ideas for a newsletter to share with colleagues or families.

How Can AI Help You Write a Newsletter?

Ask a chatbot like Gemini to help you gather ideas for an upcoming newsletter. Try a prompt like, “I am writing a newsletter for [colleagues/families] for [month]. Make a list of seasonal content I can share with them.”

The potential of AI in education is certainly vast and varied. From enhancing communication to empowering your teachers with AI-powered tools, AI offers practical solutions you can implement right away. I’ve put together a short ebook with “10 Ways School Leaders Can Use AI Tomorrow.” It’s completely free, and you can download it right here.

The new, free ebook offers ten ideas you can try out right away. It expands on the three AI tips for school leaders I shared in this blog post and also explores additional strategies. I can’t wait for you to check it out!
