Understanding AI in Education: Your Participation is Essential 

The integration of artificial intelligence (AI) in education continues to reshape teaching and learning landscapes. Our commitment to understanding this transformation is exemplified through our ongoing research, focused on the perceptions and experiences of PK-12 and post-secondary educators with AI tools. As AI’s influence grows, it is crucial to gather and analyze insights from those at the forefront of educational innovation — our pre-service and in-service educators and school administrators. 

In a recent study, a majority of educational stakeholders expressed favorable views toward AI tools (Impact Research, 2023b). Yet, detailed understanding of how these tools are being utilized and their impacts remains limited. Surveys tailored to capture the nuanced experiences and perceptions of undergraduate and graduate students within educator preparation programs (EPPs) will explore these dynamics further, providing a comparative analysis with high school students’ AI engagement (Schiel, Bobek, & Schnieders, 2023). 

Why Your Participation is Crucial 

The insights garnered from your students will enable us to craft more effective educational strategies and enhance our curriculum to better prepare educators for a technology-driven future. By participating in this research, you are not only contributing to scholarly discourse but also influencing the future of educational practices. 

Incentives for Participants 

To express our gratitude for participation, we will share all data with participating EPPs. Further, survey participants will be entered in a drawing to win $50 Amazon gift cards for participating in the five-minute surveys.
