CEI and aiEDU Launch New AI in Education Statewide Steering Committee for Colorado

CEI and the AI Education Project (aiEDU) are expanding our partnership and launching a new statewide AI in Education Steering Committee for Colorado.

The steering committee represents expertise and voices across sectors and will identify urgent policy and practice priorities and pathways to create conditions that foster promising solutions for AI in education in Colorado, specifically in spaces and communities that have historically lacked access to economic advancement. Five working groups will support the steering committee in their work to design, test, and share best practices and recommendations.

This work will inform a statewide roadmap that will help shape the future of AI in Colorado education.
