UNESCO Guidelines on Generative AI in Schools

The advent of artificial intelligence has assumed prominence amongst all industries and various facets of people's personal lives. The integration of AI in education has been inevitable, given the significance and role of information, knowledge production and administration in the sector. This is especially so as its capabilities entail replicating higher-order thinking. Besides assisting in the education process, it also brings the element of real-life relevance, allowing education to be imparted against the backdrop of the evolving world due to the same AI.

The United States lacks a singular regulation like GDPR but instead relies on a sectoral approach. For example, the Fair Credit Reporting Act requires explainable credit scoring algorithms and gives consumers access to their credit data [2] . The Equal Cre
