Google is committed to making AI helpful for everyone, in the classroom and beyond.
Bold technology, applied responsibly
AI can never replace the expertise, knowledge or creativity of an educator — but it can be a helpful tool to enhance and enrich teaching and learning experiences. As part of our Responsible AI practices, we use a human-centered design approach. And when it comes to building tools for education, we are especially thoughtful and deliberate.
AI can help educators boost their creativity and productivity, giving them time back to invest in themselves and their students.
With 99.9% of spam, phishing attempts, and malware blocked by AI-powered detection and zero reported ransomware attacks on any ChromeOS device, we make security our top priority.
With Gemini, educators get a collaboration partner that can help them save time, get inspired with fresh ideas, and create captivating learning experiences for every student.
Educators can make learning more engaging through video lessons, and save time with AI-suggested questions for YouTube videos in Classroom (coming soon).
Make learning personal for students
AI can help meet students where they are, so they can learn in ways that work for them.
Practice sets in Google Classroom enables educators to automatically provide their students with real-time feedback and helpful in-the-moment hints if they get stuck.
AI built into Chromebooks provides advanced text-to-speech, dictation, and live and closed captions.
The Read Along integration with Classroom provides real-time feedback on pronunciation to help build reading skills at a personal pace.

Safety and privacy
How does Google keep a student’s data safe and secure?
Google Workspace for Education is built on our secure, reliable, industry-leading technology infrastructure. Users get the same level of security that Google uses to protect our own services, which are trusted by over a billion users around the world every day. While AI capabilities introduce new ways of interacting with our tools, our overarching privacy policies and practices help keep users and organizations in control of their data. In addition, all core Workspace tools – like Gmail, Google Calendar, and Classroom – meet rigorous local, national, and international compliance standards, including GDPR, FERPA, and COPPA. Chromebooks are designed with multiple layers of security to keep them safe from viruses and malware without any additional software required. Each time a Chromebook powers on, security is checked. And because they can be managed centrally, Chromebooks make it easy for school IT administrators to configure policies and settings, like enabling safe browsing or blocking malicious sites.
Is Google Workspace for Education data used to train Google’s generative AI tools like Gemini and Search?
No. When using Google Workspace for Education Core Services, your customer data is not used to train or improve the underlying generative AI and LLMs that power Gemini, Search, and other systems outside of Google Workspace without permission. And prompts entered when interacting with tools like Gemini are not used without permission beyond the context of that specific user session.
How does Google ensure its AI-enabled technology is safe for kids?
Google takes the safety and security of its users very seriously, especially children. With technology as bold as AI, we believe it is imperative to be responsible from the start. That means designing our AI features and products with age-appropriate experiences and protections that are backed by research. And prior to launching any product, we conduct rigorous testing to ensure that our tools minimize potential harms, and work to ensure that a variety of perspectives are included to identify and mitigate unfair bias.
What is Google’s approach to privacy with AI in education?
Across Google Cloud & Google Workspace, we’ve long shared robust privacy commitments that outline how we protect user data and prioritize privacy. AI doesn’t change these commitments - it actually reaffirms their importance. We are committed to preserving our customers’ privacy with our AI offerings and to supporting their compliance journey. Google Cloud has a long-standing commitment to GDPR compliance, and AI is no different in how we incorporate privacy-by-design and default from the beginning. We engage regularly with customers, regulators, policymakers, and other stakeholders as we evolve our offering to get their feedback for Edu AI offerings which process personal data.
Partnership and resources
Does Google consult with educators and experts when developing AI tools for use in the classroom?
Yes. A big component of being thoughtful with new technology is our commitment to partnering with schools and educators, as well as other education experts (like learning scientists) and organizations, along the way. We don’t just build for educators, we build with them. Through our Customer Advisory Boards and Google for Education Pilot Program, we also work directly with school communities around the world to gather feedback on our products and features before making them widely available. By listening to their perspectives, understanding how they’re using our tools, and addressing their challenges, we can be thoughtful in our product development and implementation. We also roll out new features gradually, ensuring that schools can stay in control of what works best for them.
