Introducing Artificial Intelligence in High School Curriculum


In May 2019, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), convened the first conference on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Education to reflect on the impact of this emerging technology on teaching and learning. In the history of education, disruptive technologies including electronic calculators, computers, the Internet, and the World-Wide Web have set new milestones and entirely redefined the landscape of education. The design and implementation of AI conversational models, including ChatGPT by the American company Open AI, strongly suggest that accessing and using knowledge will be a lot easier in the near future. It also means that having knowledge at one's fingertips is becoming a reality. That is to say, there is a need to prepare learners and teachers for the coming technological and social changes induced by AI. Following this trend, we suggest in this paper that younger generations should be trained in the design and implementation of the building blocks of this new technology. Therefore, our paper lays down the foundations of AI curriculum design and development for high schools. It also helps prepare young students for the coming technological and social changes, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). To achieve this goal, we propose an initiative that focuses on three directions: 1) Creating accessible course contents adapted to young audiences; 2) Training teachers to master the new technology in order to deliver appropriate content; and 3) Harnessing the necessary resources to create an environment that supports learners and teachers and help them thrive.
