International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) is inviting school or district teams to enroll educator teams (of 3-6 educators) in the 2021 cohort of ISTE’s AI Explorations and Their Practical Use in K-12 School Environments program!

Supported by an ISTE coach, school and district teams can collaborate to complete their professional development program focused on the latest in artificial intelligence for education that includes: 

  • Free access to the 8-week, 15-hour Artificial Intelligence Explorations and their Practical Use in School Environments online course, which will be completed as a team from March 8 – May 2, 2021.
  • Access to the ISTE AI online community and webinar series where educators can connect with other learners and experts throughout the year.
  • Opportunity to provide input on future ISTE AI offerings through program evaluation surveys.
  • Opportunities for continued involvement after the course.

Upon successful course completion, participants will also receive a free one-year ISTE membership!


Applications should be submitted by the February 28, 2021 deadline. Priority acceptance will be given to K-12 school and district teams in Michigan, Texas, and California as well as to those schools and districts serving underrepresented student populations. Any remaining spots will be filled by other qualified teams in the US, US territories, and US international schools. Team members do not need to be current ISTE members to apply or participate. Spots for this prestigious course are expected to fill quickly, so please apply early!
