Abstract

Artificial intelligence (AI) education and literacy are gaining momentum over the past few years; AI systems are permeating our daily lives and mediate our social, cultural, and political interactions. The implications of AI extend beyond the technical aspects and involve ethical, cultural, and social issues such as misinformation and bias. Understanding how an AI system works and critical thinking skills have, therefore, become ever more crucial for children and young people in order to be able to identify the benefits and challenges of AI. The role of the educators is, at this point, critical. This chapter is situated in the context of AI education and literacy and aims to propose a framework for teacher training on AI and ML education. The design of the teacher training courses and initial findings are described. Through an exploratory approach, insights on the attitudes, the requirements, and the recommendations of the teachers emerged.
