What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“This book makes a strong case that generative AI models are more than obstacles for educators to work around, and that if used thoughtfully and creatively, they can help teachers and administrators prepare their students to thrive in a rapidly changing technological environment. Shah understands that using AI in our classrooms won't come naturally to most of us and offers concrete suggestions throughout, ranging from useful tips for modifying traditional assignments all the way to insightful recommendations for reimagining what the aims of formal education ought to be in the first place.”
Jeff Behrends, Senior Research Scholar, Department of Philosophy, Harvard University

“Shah provides a step-by-step guide that implores educators to eschew their worst impulses to over-manage or hide from AI, and to instead, turn their focus to what schools, on behalf of students, must do: adapt and innovate. His book is the first step in re-envisioning the academic process and preparing the next generation of learners.”
—Joseph Carver, Chief Innovation Officer, The Meadows School

“Priten Shah’s knowledge, experience, and spirit of public service in the fields of AI and education make this book essential reading for educators at all levels. He offers a must-read for teachers, administrators, parents, and policy makers on the voyage to best practices for using AI in classrooms.”
—Anne L'Hommedieu-Sanderson, Executive Director, ThinkerAnalytix and Associate of the Department of Philosophy, Harvard University

“While teaching in the age of artificial intelligence may be intimidating for some, Shah’s cogent and concise book is a great asset for educators, administrators, and school boards. AI and the Future of Education can especially help teachers better understand and incorporate the possibilities of AI as they continue to keep students at the center of all they do.”
—Ajay Nair, Ph.D., President, Arcadia University
