Ohio AI Toolkit

Ohio has unveiled an innovative online toolkit designed to aid schools, parents, and educators in the ethical integration of generative artificial intelligence (AI) into educational settings: AI Toolkit for Schools

Developed through a collaborative effort led by Lt. Jon Husted's InnovateOhio office and various private sector partners, the toolkit aims to demystify AI for the wider community, addressing common concerns and highlighting the technology's educational potential.

This resource, while not mandatory, offers a wealth of information, including sample lessons, discussions on ethics, and strategies for developing robust safety policies to protect students. It serves as a versatile guide for educators seeking to introduce AI concepts in the classroom, providing templates for communication with school districts, engaging student challenges, and exercises designed to explore AI's capabilities and limitations.

Additionally, the toolkit links to the U.S. Department of Education's advice on safeguarding student data and suggests methods for school districts to effectively implement AI technologies. It emphasizes the importance of considering privacy, data security, and ethical issues when utilizing AI as an educational tool.

For parents, the toolkit includes a glossary of key AI terms and a template agreement to promote responsible AI usage among students. This comprehensive approach ensures that all stakeholders are equipped with the necessary knowledge and tools to navigate the future of AI in education, reinforcing Ohio's commitment to preparing students for a technologically advanced world.
