Grow with Google, in collaboration with MIT RAISE (Responsible AI for Social Empowerment and Education), is launching a no-cost Generative AI for Educators course.

Grow with Google was launched in  2017 when Sundar Pichai announced that Google would distribute $1 billion to nonprofits in education and professional training.


Grow With Google is based on a portal with the goal of allowing anyone with an internet connection to become proficient with technology and prepare for a job in areas like information technology support and app development. It has sections for teachers and students, job seekers, startups, local businesses and developers.

The new course has been designed to help teachers build essential AI skills, and is part of Google's drive to promote useful and responsible AI education. The course has been designed for U.S.-based high school and middle school educators of any subject, with no technical experience required.GwGGenAiIEd

The course consists of two hours of self-paced study designed to show teachers how to use generative AI tools to help with creating lesson plans and materials. Teachers completing the course will learn how to write prompts for an AI tool and evaluate the output, and how to create classroom resources using an AI tool.  Teachers can also learn how to use generative AI tools to input specific lesson plans then tailor them to student interests.

The course also enables teachers to produce different sets of instruction for pupils with different abilities and reading levels. Google says that strategies for the responsible use of AI in education will be emphasized, ensuring that while the teacher explores the concepts of AI, that exploration remains ethical and appropriate for the classroom. Google also says that participants will hone their critical thinking skills, learning how to effectively evaluate AI outputs.

At the end of the course, teachers will earn a certificate that they can present to their district for professional development (PD) credit, depending on district and state requirements.

The course is being offered by a number of school districts across the U.S., including Albuquerque Public Schools, Anaheim Union High School District, Chicago Public Schools, Miami-Dade County Public Schools, and Sun Prairie Area School District in Wisconsin.
