While the nonprofit Digital Promise is a leader in the use of technology in education, it approached the possibility of applying artificial intelligence (AI) in its own work with some skepticism, unsure about the data, expertise, and resources that would be needed and concerned about potential bias. By participating in a learning cohort for education nonprofits interested in using advanced information architecture and AI, Digital Promise instead came to view artificial intelligence as an essential element of its strategy for scalable digital equity. Digital Promise is now moving forward with a plan to build an AI-powered recommendation engine that will help connect educators to relevant professional learning opportunities as part of its Verizon Innovative Learning Schools program, and sees potential for other AI applications in the future.
