Schools look to embrace generative AI in digital strategies 

Schools are increasingly looking to incorporate generative AI, a type of artificial intelligence that can create new content, into their digital strategies.

This new Teachwire article highlights five key considerations for integrating generative AI into schools. These include:

  • Understanding the purpose and benefits: Educators should prioritize the educational value of any AI tool before adopting it.
  • Data protection: Data security should remain a top priority, and schools should conduct impact assessments to identify potential risks.
  • Compatibility: Ensuring the new technology integrates with existing systems is crucial for long-term success.
  • Usage policy: Clear and transparent policies regarding AI use, including instances where AI helps create learning materials, are essential.
  • Training and support: Teachers need proper training and ongoing support to use AI tools effectively.

It also emphasizes the importance of understanding how students already use generative AI tools and highlights the need to equip students with critical thinking skills to navigate the AI-powered future.
