Shaping tomorrow, today - AI Use in Education

Shaping tomorrow, today
AI Use in Education
ChatBot.png

We have a responsibility to future adults to construct a world where AI is used ethically and safely. Ensuring that students and staff possess the knowledge necessary for an AI-driven future cannot be a mere possibility. It must become a priority. This is not a matter of some distant future government decision. Students in years 3 and 4 have been sharing their experiences with AI tools like ChatGPT, Midjourney, and DALL-E with our team over the past month.

 

Despite recent endeavours to gather public opinions on potential AI risks and the call for regulatory measures, these efforts have been perceived as reactive responses to an ever-evolving landscape, rather than a well-calculated, proactive strategy.

 

Our young people need guidance from tech-forward educators now. 

 

AI technologies have permeated every facet of our daily lives, from Uber rides to predictive texting, and even innovative tools like ChatGPT. The breakneck speed of AI development, combined with the atmosphere of alarm perpetuated by major news outlets, has instilled fear and uncertainty among the public, especially parents. 

  

As we have witnessed with social media and smartphones, the widespread impact of AI may be detrimental if not managed in the present. Don't doesn't work, but education does. It is time for a proactive approach, where schools take the lead in establishing standards for safe and responsible AI practices, thereby creating a safer future for all. Significant risks include algorithmic bias, technical challenges, monopolistic control of datasets, and a lack of transparency. These risks have been subjects of intense debate in international forums for years.

 

We are responsible to these future adults to construct a world where AI is used ethically and safely.
