Momentum around artificial intelligence (AI) continues to accelerate, captivating society with its generative capabilities. As AI becomes even more prevalent, the K-12 education community needs to embrace it and equip educators and students with the knowledge and skills to utilize it effectively and responsibly.

According to a recent survey, AI is poised to play a growing role in education, but the majority of teachers lack training on how to leverage this new technology in their classrooms. About 75% of surveyed teachers believe AI should be taught to students. However, only 13% have had any training on how to teach AI to their students.

To help meet this growing need,, ETS, ISTE, and Khan Academy are excited to announce a free professional learning course designed to level the playing field of AI understanding among K-12 teachers as they head back to the classroom this fall.
