Not since the efforts to ban calculators, or Google, has an innovative technology caused as much concern to educators. Will this powerful tool lead to massive cheating and a threat to the teaching of writing? Seattle, Los Angeles and New York City Public Schools quickly banned it. Turnitin, and OpenAI, the creators of ChatGPT, immediately began developing methods to detect its use. But the real challenge, and opportunity, for educators, is to learn how to use it thoughtfully, ramp up their media literacy curriculum, and develop assignments that result in original and creative work by their students.
I asked ChatGPT to “Write about the concerns and challenges of using ChatGPT in K-12 classrooms.” The response: “The concerns and challenges of using ChatGPT in K-12 classrooms include the need for careful consideration of the quality and reliability of information provided, and the need for teacher training and support to effectively integrate the technology into the curriculum.”
This session will be a fast moving summary of the challenges and benefits of this impactful tool. Come with an open mind, curiosity, and your sense of humor. Participants will get links to all resources. The session will end with a raffle for techy prizes.
