Recommendations on the use of AI in schools are being prepare

The purpose of the draft guidelines is to familiarize teachers with the rules for the safe and effective integration of artificial intelligence into school education.

The draft recommendations were developed by a working group of education and science experts chaired by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and the Ministry of Digital Transformation.

“The ability to work with artificial intelligence is a skill of the future. Our children should keep up with innovations from school. To teach students how to work with artificial intelligence, we first need to teach teachers how to do so. This is the main goal of the recommendations. The document explains how educators can use artificial intelligence to simplify their own work and pass on these skills to students,” says Mykhailo Fedorov, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Digital Transformation.

The draft recommendations are based on international best practices. The document was developed by 30 experts from the field of education and science, including representatives of in-service training institutes, universities, schools, and the public sector.

“Artificial intelligence can simplify and improve the work of teachers to some extent. For example, it can create didactic materials and help form individual educational trajectories for each student. In this document, we explain how to turn artificial intelligence into your own assistant. Implementation of the recommendations will help transform Ukrainian education and make it more innovative,” said Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine Oksen Lisovyi.

The draft guidelines contain ideas on how to use artificial intelligence to prepare for lessons. The document also contains a list of tools useful for teachers and students, and examples of how to formulate a request to AI systems. An important part of the guidelines is the rules for the safe use of artificial intelligence and tips for minimizing the risks of AI in education.

The final version of the recommendations will be sent to general secondary education institutions at the beginning of the 2024/2025 academic year.
