Summit ESC is excited to announce its partnership with The AI Education Project (AiEDU) to expand access to learning opportunities about artificial intelligence (AI) for students in the region. The AI Education Project is a national effort to provide professional learning programs, curriculum implementation, stakeholder engagement, and regional/national convenings of education leaders to ensure students are prepared to thrive in the age of AI.
“This might be the single most important challenge in the history of the U.S. education system, and no organization can solve the problem alone. The incredible coalition of partners that aiEDU has assembled validates its commitment to collaboration across the entire ecosystem,” said Tiffany Taylor, Chief People & Impact Officer at GSV Ventures, and aiEDU Board Member.
The AI Education Project recently announced its goal of securing 500 school district commitments for AI education by 2024 and unveiled an initial group of more than 20 district pioneers that together serve more than 1.5 million students. Summit ESC is proud to be part of this group of pioneers and is committed to expanding access to AI education for its students.
Corey Hoynacke, Director of Curriculum and Instruction at Summit ESC, said, "We are thrilled to partner with The AI Education Project to provide our students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the 21st-century economy. As the world becomes increasingly digital, it's important that our students are prepared for the challenges and opportunities of the future."
Through its partnership with The AI Education Project, Summit ESC will receive support for its commitment to expand access to AI education. This includes professional learning programs, curriculum implementation, stakeholder engagement, and regional/national convenings of education leaders. The partnership will be partially or fully funded by a cohort of foundations, companies, and philanthropies.
Summit ESC is one of many organizations across the country that has joined The AI Education Project in its mission to expand access to AI education. The project is a rallying cry for schools, nonprofits, universities, companies, and other stakeholders in the education ecosystem to band together behind a single goal: expand access to learning opportunities about artificial intelligence to ensure students are prepared to thrive as workers, consumers, creators, and citizens in the age of artificial intelligence.
