The work of the ESAA centres around the SAFE Benchmarks Framework as we engage stakeholders to align to an equitable outcome for all learners and improved working experiences for dedicated and innovative educators. Our intent is to clarify the urgency and specific areas of need to prevent failures in data management that compromise the potential for how responsible AI can be a lever for equity for educators and learners alike. Frameworks and benchmarks are important to innovation as a means of targeted guidance; focusing disparate efforts towards shared objectives and outcomes, and ensuring the development of appropriate restraints.
This is why we published a cursory document to further explain what we mean when we say safety, accountability, fairness, and efficacy and to start conversations about what each of the four components mean to the various constituencies: educators, vendors and policymakers.
Today, we launch the SAFE Webinar Series to further explain why this urgent and important work matters so much to our profession. To start, EdSAFE co-founders Dale Allen and Jim Larimore join host, Eric Nentrup, to share the origin story of The Alliance. The conversation is split into two 20 minute episodes.

In the next few posts, the Alliance will share focus on each of the components in conversation with leadership and engaged members to continue this healthy dialogue.
