Description of the methods/ approach
The curriculum is based on the national AI course available online. The curriculum contains five lessons that are freely accessible on the internet. Each lesson takes about an hour and comes with a teacher guide and a worksheet for the students.
Each lesson discusses a question regarding AI, like: what is AI, how do machines learn, what are the applications, et cetera.
The curriculum is designed to fit the existing learning guidelines regarding digital skills and 21st century skills.
The national AI course was set up to teach as many people possible more about AI. The aim of this curriculum is to help educators implement these lessons in their teaching in an easy way. After following the curriculum young learners have developed a basic understanding of what AI is about, how it works and what kind of applications are possible and already exist.
