Official Policies

As of September 2023, the CDoE was partnering with Varsity Tutors to incorporate AI into classrooms beginning in the 2023-2024 school year. They hope to emphasize “individualization” in the classroom using AI.

In the News

Connecticut’s Comprehensive Plan for Education 2023-2028 references AI numerous times, including in its action plan: “Collaborate with various stakeholders to explore how the emergence of a vast array of artificial intelligence tools might influence the nature of curriculum design for teachers, students and families, the balance between content and skill outcomes, the tension between legacy and new content requirements, and the nature of Connecticut’s curriculum frameworks”.

Universities

UConn‘s Center for Excellence has a page called “ChatGPT AI impact on Teaching and Learning” which addresses ChatGPT’s use in the classroom and links to a number of further links for educators. As of May 2023, the University’s ITS department also posted a security concern addressing AI, explaining its risks in and out of the classroom.

Yale University has posted a variety of resources regarding GenAI on their official website, including an article called “Yale University AI guidelines for staff”, a comprehensive article on GenAI and AI policy in the classroom. Yale’s Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning also has a long webpage on GenAI and Guidelines for Yale Educators.
