How Can I Teach with This Tool?

The AI Education Project (aiEDU) provides a variety of resources for teaching students about artificial intelligence (AI), most notably their free nine-week high school course. The Introduction to Artificial Intelligence course contains 36 45-minute lessons. It uses project-based learning to help students build an understanding of AI from the ground up. Students participate in hands-on activities and digital simulations to learn about the complexities and nuances of AI. There's a major focus on bias and data quality. The curriculum is built in Google Slides and comes with a printable student workbook and teacher guide. Teachers and students don't need computer science or coding knowledge, as the course uses a coding-free platform called Hugging Face for student projects. However, this curriculum could also make a great unit in a year-long CS course.

If you just have a few minutes, check out the AI Snapshots curriculum designed for use in any middle or high school classroom. AI Snapshots includes 180 warm-up-style prompts designed to engage students for five minutes as they consider how AI affects their everyday lives. The prompt topics are divided evenly between the core subjects: math, reading, science, and social studies. Any teacher can integrate AI Snapshots into their daily classes, picking and choosing the questions that fit best.

In addition to creating curricula, aiEDU partners with the Center for Security and Emerging Technology to promote courses, community programs, events, internships, and other opportunities for students and teachers to learn more about AI.
