Tech Use Surges Under COVID-19: Where Does Artificial Intelligence Fit In?

This report is the final installment in a series of three special reports for the 2019-20 school year that Education Week is producing for K-12 ed-tech leaders. The report examines how artificial intelligence is currently being used in schools and how the surge in tech use during the COVID-19 school building closures might affect the use of AI once school buildings reopen; important lessons the K-12 system can learn about AI use from the health care, military, and higher education sectors; and perspectives on the upsides and downsides of expanding the use of artificial intelligence in schools.
