Artificial Intelligence (AI)

An image of the Earth drawn by digital connections.

Artificial Intelligence (AI): AI is a branch of computer science. AI systems use hardware, algorithms, and data to create “intelligence” to do things like make decisions, discover patterns, and perform some sort of action.

- From the EngageAI Institute

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already in our classrooms, schools, and homes. Here are some resources for special education practitioners about what AI is, how it is and can be used, and considerations to make when thinking about AI.

"Why do we need to talk about AI and education? If you think back...whatever is happening in our classroom looks very similar to what is happening in the workforce. And so our role as teachers and particularly special education teachers is to ensure that our students are prepared for the future and whatever that future looks like."
