Summary

Artificial Intelligence (AI) increasingly dominates the decision-making mechanisms that underlie the technological systems that surrounding us and is expected to shape the human-computer interaction in the next decade. As part of this process, AI, and especially – its sub-discipline of machine -learning – are receiving more weight within computer science learning programs. In Israel, the topic of machine learning was recently added to the CS learning curriculum as an elective unit. This research deals with the challenges of training teachers to teach ML, and in developing a blended-learning program that leverages the plethora of quality online learning resources for effective instruction of the subject on the high-school level. In addition to the technological and scientific aspects, this program touches upon the societal and ethical perspectives of AI.
