Artificial Intelligence in Education

Put Educators and Students in the Driver's Seat

To prepare students for the careers of today — and tomorrow — educators must explore and integrate artificial intelligence (AI) into K-12 classrooms. AI is already making its way into classrooms in the form of adaptive software, recommendation engines and digital assistants and is a critical element of any STEM curriculum. And generative technologies like ChatGPT, while causing a stir, present an opportunity to transform learning — as long as educators and learners understand how to strike the proper balance between the risks and benefits.

Educators are key to preparing students to thrive in a world where artificial intelligence is an integral part of their lives and careers. Over a thousand educators are already participating in ISTE-developed professional learning programs that provide training and resources to help students:

  • Develop knowledge and skills about AI.
  • Consider the capabilities, risks and ethical questions related to using AI.
  • Explore AI solutions to problems in their communities.

Free Practical Guides for Engaging Students in AI Creation

The Hands-On AI Projects for the Classroom guides from ISTE and GM provide elementary, secondary, elective and computer science teachers with curricular resources about AI across various grade levels and subject areas. Each guide includes background information and four student-driven projects that relate to subject area standards, while providing foundational learning on what AI is, how it works and how it impacts society.

With these hands-on projects, students work directly with innovative AI technologies, participate in “unplugged” activities and create various products — from chatbots to presentations to video games — to demonstrate their learning. These hands-on guides are available in English, Spanish and Arabic.
