    What is artificial intelligence? Can I realistically use it in my school? What’s best done by human intelligence vs. artificial intelligence, and how do I bring these strengths together? What would it look like for me, and my school, to be AI Ready?


    AI for School Teachers will help teachers and headteachers understand enough about AI to build a strategy for how it can be used in their school. Examining the needs of schools to ensure they are ready to leverage the power of AI and drawing examples from early years to high school students, this book outlines the educational implications and benefits that AI brings to school education in practical ways. It develops an understanding of what AI is and isn't and how we define and measure what we value and provides a framework which supports a step-by-step approach to developing an AI mindset, focusing on ways to improve educational opportunities for students with evidence-informed interventions.

    "This book is designed to engage members of the teaching profession directly and in an accessible way. It is starting with teachers not technology. It then places the importance of AI to teachers in their practice and follows by guiding them through how to make AI work for them. I am excited by the potential of this book to empower the teaching profession. Too many feel hard pressed by accountability systems and the pressures of the pandemic. New AI technology offers the possibility of relieving the pressure and liberating teachers to re-connect with their vocation and realise the potential of their pupils." -- Lord Jim Knight, Chair of E-ACT multi academy trust and CAST 

    "Importantly, Rose and Karine assure us we don’t need to be experts or data scientists to be substantively engaged with AI. And with this book, they have provided teachers an all-access pass to one of the most important public conversations of our era. Jump right in, enjoy the ride and then take everyone on it with you!" --Tabitha Goldstaub, Co-Founder of Cognition X, Chair of the UK Government's AI Council, from the Foreword

    "The COVID-19 pandemic has further highlighted the importance of digital systems and data in education, but while there are many questions, credible answers are still few and far between. This book will help educationalists understand what AI is, what questions and dilemmas it raises, and how to respond." --Timo Hannay, Founder, SchoolDash Limited
