Helping teachers critically, ethically, & responsibly bring AI into classrooms
A curated collection of assignments bringing a critical lens to generative artificial intelligence, built collaboratively with educators. We give teachers the tools to examine generative AI’s dangers, benefits, and impact on the classroom.

The AI Pedagogy Project is a curated collection of classroom assignments, designed to help educators facilitate critical conversations with their students about the capabilities and limitations of AI. All assignments in this collection have been created by educators; all are customizable to a given classroom’s needs and an instructor's teaching values.
AI is an umbrella term that refers to a growing and changing set of technologies, tools, and data-driven systems. In recent months, a subset of AI, known as “generative AI,” has captured the public imagination and caused understandable concern among some educators. These generative AI technologies include large language models (such as ChatGPT and Bard) and image generation tools (such as DALL-E and Midjourney); generative AI tools can also be used to generate code, music, and video.
As public access to AI tools has increased, so has the need to define their role in education. The AI Pedagogy Project is our response to the following challenges: How do we concretely and responsibly support teachers to address the role of AI in the classroom? How do we support students in developing critical relationships with these tools while enhancing their education?
We believe that regardless of discipline or technical background, every educator should be equipped to consider how AI will affect their teaching, their discipline, and their students. Now more than ever, there is a need for collaboration and exchange between STEM and the arts and humanities. This collection will continue to evolve alongside the ever-changing AI landscape.
