Cleveland City Schools on Wednesday morning, Aug. 9, announced a new initiative that will transform the learning landscape at Cleveland High and Cleveland Middle schools.

According to a press release, starting from the 2023-2024 academic year, the Career and Technical Education (CTE) program will provide students with hands-on experience in artificial intelligence.

This program has been made possible through a state grant and includes the integration of advanced robots from the company RobotLab, the press release stated.

Artificial Intelligence is changing the landscape of information technology across the globe. We must harness this technology and teach students how to use it effectively while maintaining the integrity of their work, Director of Schools Russell Dyer said. I look forward to seeing how this new program at Cleveland High School responsibly embraces the power of AI technology.

Under the leadership of Cleveland High and Cleveland Middle schools, our administrators are committed to providing an educational environment where students can excel and thrive in the rapidly evolving world, the press release stated.

Supervisor of CTE, Renny Whittenbarger, emphasizes the importance of preparing students to collaborate with AI rather than against it.

"AI technology is here to stay, and it is reshaping various industries," Whittenbarger said. "It is our responsibility to prepare our students with the tools they need to adapt to this dynamic technological landscape. By introducing AI technology through the use of these robots, we aim to empower our students to work alongside AI as valuable assets and become future leaders in the techdriven world."

CHS Principal Bob Pritchard said, "Embracing artificial intelligence is essential in preparing our students for the future AI job market. It will empower them with invaluable skills and knowledge to excel in their careers and tackle the challenges and opportunities presented by AI-driven industries."

CMS Principal Nat Akiona also noted, We are thrilled to have AI technology introduced into our middle school curriculum at Cleveland Middle School. Providing our students with the opportunity to engage with such advanced technology at their age is truly exciting.

The grant has enabled the acquisition of a pair of 4-foot robots and six 2-foot robots from the company RobotLab.

These state-of-the-art robots will provide students with an immersive learning experience, giving them the opportunity to explore AI technology in a practical and interactive manner, the press release stated. By instilling skills in critical thinking, problem-solving, and AI applications, Cleveland City Schools is taking a significant step towards creating a future-ready generation of graduates.
