EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - EVSC Board members held a meeting to discuss several topics, including whether to adopt an AI policy in the school corporation

The School Board wishes to promote the continued improvement and responsible use of technology to enhance the educational experience of its staff and students.

School officials say their primary objectives are to ensure a safe, productive, and enriching experience while maintaining a respectful and responsible atmosphere. They say technology can be an important part of that.

EVSC Chief communications officer Jason Woebkenberg explained how AI is impacting education.

“When you look back a generation ago when the internet was first starting to take hold and starting to make an impact in education, that’s kind of where AI is now its obviously,” said Woekenberg. “Its new technology but its changing by the day and we wanna make sure that we are in the position to harness the power of that for good for classroom learning.”

They voted to approve the use of AI programs in classes.
