Artificial Intelligence in Education

To prepare students to thrive as learners and leaders of the future, educators must become comfortable teaching with and about Artificial Intelligence. Generative AI tools such as ChatGPT, Claude and Midjourney, for example, further the opportunity to rethink and redesign learning. Educators can use these tools to strengthen learning experiences while addressing the ethical considerations of using AI. ISTE is the global leader in supporting schools in thoughtfully, safely and responsibly introducing AI in ways that enhance learning and empower students and teachers.
