With the advent of AI in schools I believe it is crucial for the curriculum and agenda of Educators to incorporate lesson plans that incorporate AI more effectively and better education on how the technology works, if schools mandated a technology class where computer programming and machine learning were mandatory we would have a much more educated populace in the united states for how AI works and generally a more advanced society.

The traditional classroom model is done. Kids will learn much more efficiently with one on one instruction and evaluation from AI.

I agree with this, Chatgpt gave the school system a rude awakening, and it will most definitely happen again. Personally when that happens many people will not be ready, teachers just entering the job space might just be out of a job of lecturing.

I'd say in the short term the schools themselves will remain but the adults will just be there to maintain order. Tons of teachers are already using GPT for their lesson plans. We'll just cut out the middle man. This will be especially true once AI can generate high quality video on the fly.

We are literally using it with students for all kinds of things. I really wish people wouldn’t assume that teachers are clueless or stuck in a “traditional” way of doing things, just because you watched a YouTube video about it or didn’t do well in school yourself (not you, just in general). We’re trained professionals with a lot of experience and skills. The criticisms I’m reading make it so clear that many people in this thread haven’t set foot in a school in a very long time. I hear the same criticisms all the time, and they’re not based in reality in 2023. It’s just people echoing each other. I graduated from high school in 2004. Classrooms are nothing like they were then.

Apologies for the inconvenience as a 15-year-old I still have a lot to learn, thank you for your thoughtful and eye-opening response, though teachers getting completely replaced seems a little far off I believe that AI integration with be beneficial for everyone.

The sad truth is that in many cases school is effectively day care, and not pure education. Changing the education aspect won't necessarily overhaul how schools work.

The future generations are going to be extremely gullible and horrible at problem solving.

Why would humans need to be problem solving when ai that is multiple times smarter than even the smartest human ever can do it?

Every once in a while you break down in the middle of nowhere with no phone or way to contact people.


SnaxFax-was-taken OP t1_je85iy5 wrote

How far off are we talking? Due to the Exponential progression of AI models and Brain research, We might not need to build problem-solving skills if we have the technology in our brains to do it instantly, Though this seems utterly preposterous, Tech like these LLM was thought to be still decades off(Look where we are now). I'm talking about neural link technology.

I’m an English and writing teacher for 6th and 8th grade students. We’re teaching them how to use it appropriately. There’s no way to avoid it—it must be taught.

So many people fail to understand that for students the main purpose of writing is the thinking, not the final product. With GPT you jump straight to the final product. We’re incorporating more speaking, structured academic conversations, writing on paper in class, and learning how to use AI for the tasks that are appropriate, like emails or asking it for feedback on your writing. Many will ignore our guidance and abuse it, but that’s the case with anything.

We already stopped worrying about grammar, spelling, and punctuation conventions when those became integrated into their Google drive, etc. Those haven’t been emphasized for years. We will adjust to all of this too.

Edit to add: Chat GPT3 is the least of our worries in schools right now. We probably have 30 major problems before we get to AI.

Agreed. Fellow teacher here, preparing our kiddos for the world they will navigate as adults is part of our job. As is teaching them how to share, socialize, negotiate, win, lose, and pick themselves up with dignity. Things an AI can’t do. Our pandemic school escapades taught the world that children need human teachers, one because they are not mature enough to be self directed, and second, because they are not self-actualized. AI does not have a body (yet), it doesn’t have the dexterity to show a student how to hold a pencil, or help them find a permission slip that is lost in the depths of their backpack.

AI will change many things, but the humanity in teaching is safe, for now.

do you mean highschool? I don't really see how highschool is anything but prison for young adults

I completely agree with you, SnaxFax-was-taken! Incorporating AI into the curriculum is essential for preparing the next generation for an increasingly technology-driven world. A mandatory technology class with a focus on programming and machine learning would certainly help students gain a better understanding of how AI works and how to effectively utilize it. I believe this would have a positive impact on our society as a whole, by creating a more advanced and informed populace. Thanks for sharing your insights on this topic!

My son is 11, and I am signing him up for everything AI related immediately.

I like that idea, keep in mind that if they're not interested in it, it might not be worth them pursuing it. Judging from personal experience.

I agree wholeheartedly with this, though I am unsure of how the people who actually control curriculum in schools will receive these types of ideas.
