These guidelines "are designed to help educators understand the potential that the applications of AI and data usage can have in education and to raise awareness of the possible risks so that they are able to engage positively, critically and ethically with AI systems and exploit their full potential." The document (40 page PDF) dispels some misconceptions and explores some use cases before (p. 18) outlining core ethical considerations: human agency, fairness, humanity and justified choice. Key requirements include oversight, transparency, diversity, non-discrimination, fairness, etc. Overall, the presentation is framed in terms of reducing risk and poses questions that educators should ask when using AI.
