AI Curriculum

As technology continues to evolve, incorporating artificial intelligence (AI) tools like ChatGPT can enhance classroom experiences and foster critical thinking skills among students.

If you’re starting to wade into AI, I recommend starting with AI Pedagogy Project’s AI Starter Guide and the Large Language Model Tutorial. These guides will help you quickly get up to speed on how generative AI models work and how to start thinking about incorporating them into your classroom.

Then, dive into Arianna Prothero’s “What Is Age-Appropriate Use of AI? 4 Developmental Stages to Know About” to understand how to add AI to early elementary, upper elementary, middle school, and high school curricula.
