Recently, the National AI Schools Taskforce put together the Australian Framework for Generative Artificial Intelligence in Schools. It's a valuable guide to the responsible and ethical use of generative AI tools in education settings.
But like all frameworks, it's light on details. So, we put together this resource to help schools go beyond the what of the Australian framework and dive into the how.
We're just starting to put it together so consider it a working document. Oh, and it's totally free forever. Enjoy!
Schools engage students in learning about generative AI tools and how they work, including their potential limitations and biases, and deepen this learning as student usage increases.
1.3 Teacher expertise
Generative AI tools are used in ways that support teacher expertise, and teachers are recognised and respected as the subject matter experts within the classroom.
1.5 Learning design
Work designed for students, including assessments, clearly outlines how generative AI tools should or should not be used and allows for a clear and unbiased evaluation of student ability.
4.1 Accessibility and inclusivity
Generative AI tools are used in ways that enhance opportunities, and are inclusive, accessible, and equitable for people with disability and from diverse backgrounds.
Generative AI tools are used in ways that support inclusivity, minimising opportunities for, and countering, unfair discrimination against individuals, communities, or groups.
4.4 Cultural and intellectual property
Generative AI tools are used in ways that respect the cultural rights of various cultural groups, including Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP) rights.
Members of school communities that are impacted by generative AI tools are actively informed about, and have opportunities to question, the use or outputs of the tools and any decisions informed by the tools.
6.1 Privacy and data protection
Generative AI tools are used in ways that respect and uphold privacy and data rights, comply with Australian law, and avoid the unnecessary collection, limit the retention, prevent further distribution, and prohibit the sale of...
6.2 Privacy disclosure
School communities are proactively informed about how and what data will be collected, used, and shared while using generative AI tools, and consent is sought where needed.
6.3 Protection of student inputs
Students, teachers and staff take appropriate care when entering information into generative AI tools which may compromise any individual’s data privacy.
6.4 Cyber-security and resilience
Robust cyber-security measures are implemented to protect the integrity and availability of school infrastructure, generative AI tools, and associated data.
