I'm Dave Travis, Khan Academy’s Director of US Content, and I'm excited to introduce you to the AI for Education course on Khan Academy!
This course is a work-in-progress. As of March 2023, it contains a single unit containing a handful of articles: a general overview of large language models; answers to frequently asked questions from teachers, parents, and students; and some strategies for working productively with AI-powered chatbots, both in the classroom and in your individual learning journeys.
Khan Academy believes that AI tools powered by Large Language Models (LLMs) hold the potential to transform education. By providing teachers and students with resources and tools to design joyful, personalized, interactive, engaging learning experiences, we hope to become a trusted partner in your learning journey. Our research project to develop Khanmigo, our AI-powered learning guide, into a helpful tutor-like companion, is one part of that. This course is another.
I hope you'll check out the course—and let us know if there are additional resources you would like us to include in this course in the future!
