Standards Alignment

State Standards

CASEL SEL Standards:

Self-awareness: Teachers reflecting on their own feelings and beliefs about AI, including any apprehensions or misconceptions, aligns with the SEL competency of self-awareness. This objective encourages educators to recognize their emotions towards new technologies and their potential impact on teaching and learning.

Self-management: Learning how to effectively integrate AI into lesson planning and administrative tasks supports the self-management competency. It involves managing one's time and emotions, particularly the stress associated with workload management, thus improving personal efficiency and well-being.

This involves understanding the societal impact of AI, empathizing with diverse perspectives on technology in education, and considering ethical implications.

Relationship skills: These objectives foster collaboration and communication among educators, essential aspects of relationship skills. Working together to brainstorm and create AI-integrated materials encourages teamwork and effective communication, enhancing professional relationships.

Responsible decision-making: Making informed decisions about when and how to use AI in the classroom, considering its benefits and limitations, reflects responsible decision-making. This involves ethical considerations, understanding the consequences of integrating AI into teaching practices, and choosing actions that positively impact student well-being and academic success.
