Claire Fisher, MBA & MA, leads the efforts of the California Community Colleges to build strategic partnerships and employ AI to increase student access, persistence, and career success. She began her career as a Teach For America corps member and was a high school math teacher and school leader in New Orleans. As an awardee of the Stanford GSB Social Innovation Fellowship, she founded a national nonprofit organization called The Arena to strengthen the school to work pipeline. Claire grew its team and impact, serving 100,000 students at 30+ public districts and schools through designing and implementing technology-based career training and employment programs as well as open-source data-driven guides on training, jobs, and pathways. She is driven by a desire to ensure all people can access economic mobility and reliably stable careers. Claire has a joint MBA and M.A. from the Stanford Graduate Schools of Business and Education, a M.A. in teaching from Relay Graduate School of Education, and a B.A. from Stanford University.

We’re launching some innovative lab initiatives for our college leaders, administrators, teachers and students to employ AI for improved student access, persistence, and success. I am excited to share more about opportunities for training, cohort-building, and tools enablement as well as leadership council opportunities for me to learn from you and ensure your needs drive our actions. I am excited to be here with Playlab founder Yusuf Ahmad today, as he’s a key leader in the teaching and learning space and his organization is a prospective partner!

Yusuf Ahmad is the CEO of Playlab, a tech nonprofit that empowers educators, schools, and nonprofits to build their own AI tools or adapt tools built by others.

Prior to founding Playlab, Yusuf led new product development for Teach For America, contributed to Scratch (a creative coding platform used by millions of kids), researched at the MIT Media Lab, and was on the founding team of ALU & ALX, a pan-African network of universities and alternative higher ed pathways. Outside of work, he mentors startups through MIT’s Sandbox Fund, angel invests in AI edtech companies like LitLab and Recess, and is a proud girl dad.

During this workshop, learn how to build your own AI Ed tech tool without needing to code. Along the way, we’ll explore the possibilities, limits, and opportunities of using generative AI in education.
