K-12 AI Guidelines
The AI for K-12 guidelines are organized around the 5 Big Ideas in AI. The guidelines will serve as a framework to assist standards writers and curricula developers on AI concepts, essential knowledge, and skills by grade band.
The AI4K12 draft guidelines are organized in K-12 grade band progression charts and are available in the Guidelines menu for Big Idea 1, Big Idea 2 , Big Idea 3, and Big Idea 4.
