    Artificial Intelligence Applications in K-12 offers authentic instances of how AI systems can be integrated into K-12 education today. As AI technologies rapidly evolve and become more accessible to primary, middle, and high schools worldwide, there is a pressing need for new demonstrations that highlight the challenges, opportunities, and ethical considerations associated with these powerful tools. This book explores the various roles of AI in pedagogy and assessment, school administration, student data management, and beyond. Its collected case studies present practical ideas for enhancing educational institutions and offers replicable approaches across a range of learning priorities, from fostering motivation and engagement to improving feedback and achieving educational goals. Researchers, faculty members of teacher and leadership preparation programs, curriculum and instruction specialists, school-based instructional designers, technology coaches, and other readers will gain fresh insights from diverse global perspectives on topics such as generative AI, adaptive learning, intelligent tutoring systems, chatbots, predictive technologies, facial recognition software, and more.
