Teaching in a time of AI
Just like many other teachers, I am wondering about the impact of AI such as ChatGPT on our class assignments. I once asked ChatGPT to write a biographical blurb about me and the results were very wrong. This week, I am participating in an asynchronous training by the Hypothesis Academy called "Social Annotation in the Age of AI." As part of the training, we watched a video by Dan Lametti in which he explains that AI basically is trained to complete a sentence based on the most likely word that would follow next. AI does not think, AI does not evaluate. I am also learning from Hypothesis how students can annotate class readings together. I am excited to try this out in my classes this coming Fall semester.
