Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

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

In this poster, attendees will learn how to access the guides, learn strategies for designing and implementing student-driven AI lessons and projects in K-12 classrooms, and be able to ask questions of an expert panel of the guides' authors, contributors, and project piloters.
