What We Do

Conferences and Events

The In­sti­tute hosts an annual Fall conference, called The Fu­tures Fest for AI in Ed­u­ca­tion.  This conference is open to members and non-members of the Institute and is streamed live through our Futures Fest APP.  In preparation for our Futures Fest, the Institute cu­rates and care­fully se­lects ideas and peo­ple from all walks of life com­mit­ted to how hu­mans learn and what role ma­chines and AI plays in the fu­ture learn­ing.

The Institute also hosts a Spring Summit, a members only working group committed to crafting policy positions and developing standards for AI in education.


Our seminars are small gatherings where experts on AI and our member leaders connect, reflect, and share ideas on the future of AI in education.

Research and Advocacy

The In­sti­tute also promotes, sponsors, and pub­lishes re­search on AI’s use in ed­u­ca­tion and ad­vo­cates at the fed­eral and state lev­els on the im­pli­ca­tions AI will have in ed­u­ca­tion. We partner with some of the most respected names in the industry to develop, refine, and distribute our research.

Leadership Initiatives 

The Institute is developing a new Leadership Initiative where leaders participate in a full year program designed to explore their core values on AI’s use in education and drive action in their school districts and communities for reimagining the entire student experience.
