Educators are currently filled with rollercoaster emotions and reactions. There is a lot of excitement and fear in the air about the use of AI in education. A  range of perspectives and positions are currently shared openly and widely in publications and panel discussions. 

If you would like to find out more about AI and Education and particularly ChatGPT and Education, please access the useful guide by Torrey Trust made available via the National Teaching Repository. The Teachers’ prompt guide for chatGPT by Andrew Herft will provide some inspiration.

We would like to capture where we are at this moment in time with our collective thinking about potential alternative uses and applications of AI that could make a real difference and potentially create new learning, development and opportunities for our students, for all of us. 

This is an open invitation to all educators and students to co-create a collection of ideas on how AI tools such as ChatGPT, DALL-E 2 and Midjourney could be used in inventive ways for learning, teaching and scholarship.

Experimentation is at the heart of education. Being open to diverse ideas will help us make novel connections that can lead to new discoveries and insights to make a positive contribution to our world. Ideas shared may be in its embryonic stage, half-baked but worth exploring further through active and creative inquiry.  

This set of creative ideas will be made available as an Open Educational Resource (OER) via the #creativeHE website, the National Teaching Repository and Zenodo for example. It will be released under the Creative Commons License CC-BY-NC-SA for wider use. Therefore, please only contribute if you agree that your idea will be shared using this particular license agreement.

As the set will be made available under a CC license, anybody could use the collection as open data to further interrogate the collection. Please share any resulting further outcomes with the editorial team and the wider community. 

Thank you for considering our invitation. We can’t wait to hear about your ideas!

    Why learn or teach?
    AI will eventually have all the answers and do all the jobs. Humans will just become a lazy leach on this planet sucking it dry to the point of total destruction.

      Hi Dom, thank you for sharing your thoughts on this. Could it be that humans will be able tof focus more on what they are good at? Socrates was against the technology of writing for the same reasons as you stated above about AI. I don’t know what the future will bring but we will need to develop AI literacy one way or the other? Thank you again for stopping by.
