Teaching with Artificial Intelligence

Ital.IA Lab: on-line course for teachers

"The use of AI systems is potentially capable of improving teaching, learning, and assessment, of ensuring better learning results and helping schools to operate more efficiently. However, an inadequate use of AI applications could have negative consequences. Therefore, educators must be aware that the systems are managed reliably to protect the privacy of individuals and the common good. The expression “ethical artificial intelligence” refers to the development, promotion, and use of AI in respect of ethical principles and fundamental related values" [European Commission, Ethical guidelines on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and data in teaching and learning for educators, 2020].

The  Teaching with Artificial Intelligence: Ethics, Tools, and Experimentation on-line course will provide teachers with the necessary knowledge, resources, and tools to use AI in a critical and conscientious manner in an educational context. The three-module course addresses issues that range from ethics to the responsible use of AI, the use of AI-based tools, and an introduction to practical experiences, as well as teaching simulations.

The course is organised by Ital.IA Lab, the project developed by the Fondazione Mondo Digitale and Microsoft Italia to promote the opportunities created by artificial intelligence.


  1. Ethics and Responsibility for a Critical Use of Artificial Intelligence 
    The module addresses the importance of developing a critical spirit in students and to understand the ethical implications of using AI. We will look at methods to introduce AI to students through contemporary and classical narration, opening a discussion on what makes something intelligent artificial, and vice versa.
  2. Presentation and Proposals for the Use of AI Tools 
    The module presents concrete AI-based tools like Copilot and ChatGPT, analysing their similarities and differences. We will explore the use of these tools for teachers through guided discussions.
  3. Reports on Experience and Initial Tests 
    This module will illustrate the results of the experiments conducted by participants in their educational contexts. Sharing these practical experiences will allow us to concentrate on peer teaching and the identification of best practices in the integration of AI into teaching.
