K-12 AI curricula: a mapping of government-endorsed AI curricula

K-12 AI curricula: a mapping of government-endorsed AI curricula has been published

The report has been produced by UNESCO’s Unit for Technology and Artificial Intelligence in Education, which sits within the Futures of Learning and Innovation Team.

Our very own JETsetters, Kelly Shiohira, supported the data collection, analysed the survey data, carried out the curriculum mapping, and drafted the report and Patrick Molokwane provided desktop research support.

As AI technology represents a new subject area for K–12 schools worldwide, there is a lack of historical knowledge for governments, schools and teachers to draw from in defining AI competencies and designing AI curricula. This mapping exercise analyses existing AI curricula with a specific focus on the curriculum content and learning outcomes, and delineates development and validation mechanisms, curriculum alignment, the preparation of learning tools and required environments, the suggested pedagogies, and the training of teachers. Key considerations are drawn from the analysis to guide the future planning of enabling policies, the design of national curricula or institutional study programmes, and implementation strategies for AI competency development.
