Google is bringing its AI chatbot, Gemini, to teen students in over 100 countries. This was announced today by the company in a blog post where it outlined how Gemini will make learning more personal and engaging for students and how it will be available for free to schools.

The company stated in its announcement that it has partnered with experts in child safety and development to ensure that Gemini is used responsibly in schools. As far as how it will help students learn, an example given is how students can chat with Gemini to get help with their homework or to learn more about a topic they're interested in. Gemini can also provide personalized feedback on students' work and help them identify areas where they need to improve. For instance, if a student is writing a paper, Gemini can help them to improve their grammar, spelling, and clarity of writing. Overall, Gemini can be a valuable tool for students who want to learn more and improve their academic performance.

Google says it is also committed to helping students stay safe online. As a result, the company has developed a new media literacy curriculum, in partnership with leading experts like the National Association of Media Literacy Education (NAMLE), that helps students learn how to navigate the internet safely and responsibly. This curriculum covers a wide range of topics, including how to identify credible sources of information, how to avoid online scams, and how to be respectful of others online.

It is kind of amazing how much information is available to students now right at their fingerprints. The only challenge now is to ensure that these tools are used properly and fairly.
