    Hands-On AI Projects for the Classroom: A Guide for Elementary Teachers

    Hands-On AI Projects for the Classroom:  A Guide for Elementary Teachers


    ISTE and GM have partnered to create Hands-On AI Projects for the Classroom guides to provide educators with a variety of activities to teach students about AI across various grade levels and subject areas. Each guide includes background information for teachers and student-driven project ideas that relate to subject-area standards. 

    The hands-on activities in the guides range from “unplugged” projects to explore the basic concepts of how AI works to creating chatbots and simple video games with AI, allowing students to work directly with innovative AI technologies and demonstrate their learning. 


    The Hands-On AI Projects for the Classroom series is a set of guides for teachers who are seeking instructional and curricular resources about artificial intelligence (AI) for various grade levels and across a range of subject areas.  Developed by ISTE in partnership with General Motors, these guides are an extension of ISTE's work and feature student-driven AI projects curated from educators in the field, as well as strategies to support teachers in implementing the projects in a variety of K–12 classrooms. The projects engage students in both unplugged and technology-infused activities that explore key facets of AI technologies.
