Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a grandiose array of powerful tools that can be utilized in education for extremely meaningful impact. Despite the usefulness of these tools, the average person can easily and rapidly become overwhelmed when tasked to select the right tool for the intent and pedagogical purpose. With tens of thousands of AI tools claiming to be the best and most useful, people don’t know which companies to trust. There is no consistency, minimal policies, and almost no tangible evidence that an end-user can use to make an informed decision about which tool they should choose. This issue is even worse when it comes to education. In the United States, public educators are required to follow strict laws to protect student information, such as CIPA, COPPA, and FERPA. Despite this, educators may be unknowingly breaking these laws by using many of these AI tools, or by encouraging their students to do so. With minimal planning time, a growing list of expectations, and the pressure that comes with being a teacher, it is difficult for educators to stay up-to-date with the growing trends of AI, especially as they are constantly changing and evolving every day. With the well advertised promise of saving time and revolutionizing the way we teach, educators may not consider other implications, such as morals, ethics, and efficacy. With no standard to follow, no baseline to compare to, minimal evidence to base their decision making on, and an overwhelming amount of resources about AI, it is impossible for the average educator to responsibly use AI tools in their daily lives. This current situation is overwhelming and unacceptable. Something must be done to protect student information and empower educators with responsible and ethical AI use.
