UPDATE: On January 29th, 2024, President Biden announced an update to his October 2023 Executive Order, which included a statement that by October 2024, the Department of Education will “develop guidance on safe, responsible, and nondiscriminatory use of AI in education”.

In May 2023, the US Dept. of Education announced the release a 70-page report called “AI and the Future of Teaching and Learning”, which suggested the following steps:

  1. Emphasize Humans-in-the-Loop
  2. Align AI Models to a Shared Vision for Education
  3. Design AI Using Modern Learning Principles
  4. Prioritize Strengthening Trust
  5. Inform and Involve Educators
  6. Focus R&D on Addressing Context and Enhancing Trust and Safety
  7. Develop Education-specific Guidelines and Guardrails

More recently, in October 2023, President Biden included AI in Education in an Executive Order, committing himself to “Shape AI’s potential to transform education by creating resources to support educators deploying AI-enabled educational tools, such as personalized tutoring in schools”.

In December 2023, the National Science Foundation (NSF) launched the EducateAI Initiative, with aims ” to enable educators to make high-quality, audience-appropriate artificial intelligence educational experiences available nationwide to K-12, community college, four-year college and graduate students, as well as adults interested in formal training in AI”.

In October 2023, Education Technology Industry’s Principles for the Future of AI in Education released a document with 7 “Principles for AI in Education”, which provide “a framework for how we can look to the future of implementing AI technologies in a purpose-driven, transparent, and equitable manner”.
