Led by our community members, our active working groups meet once every two months to define important alliance milestones, share insights, exchange policy ideas and develop strategies and structures for our benchmarking, thought leadership and standards work.
Developing Frameworks, Guidelines and Benchmarks
Our community-led working groups bring together members from both the public and private sector and from a diverse range of experiences to share challenges, best practice ideas and insights and together develop solutions.
Through participation in the working groups, members receive access to latest information, resources and discussions. Development of regional focus and working groups will take place to address specific communities, challenges and solutions.

Current Working Group Projects
1 / Policy Support Framework
Numerous ministries, governments and education institutions are in the process of developing and delivering AI policy which will effect education solutions. Based on global responses and experience, this framework supports policy and decision makers navigate this work by ensuring that all necessary components of specific education requirements have been addressed, whilst also safeguarding the possibility for future innovations.
2 / Framework for identifying bias
Bias can be inherent to every solution being developed. Within an AI landscape, however, even small biases can lead to certain learning styles, learning communities or backgrounds being inequitably treated. This framework explores effective ways of identifying (inherent) biases in AI in Education solutions to ensure equitable access and opportunity for all learners. This framework will continue to be developed as part of the Global Education Startup Awards AI challenge.
3 / Guideline & Research Analysis Project
The ESAA aims to act as a central repository of key guidelines, regulatory frameworks and research, amplifying the existing work of organisations and members and identifying key gaps. The guideline and research project will then assess the gaps and make recommendations for research or guideline creation to fill these.
