With all the hype and frenzy over AI going on, I was most excited to see an open invitation created by @chrissinerantzi and colleagues for a constructive community ask:
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 and educators, 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 aschatGPT,DALL-E 2andMidjourneycould be used in inventive ways for learning, teaching and scholarship.
Experimentation is at the heart of learning, teaching and scholarship. 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.
I am hopeful we can slightly bend Chrissi’s arm to not only share this during Open Education Week (Mar 6-10) but maybe join us for a live webcast conversation (part of a new daily activity being hatched for #OEWeek).
Great Idea, why afraid of Machine Intelligence. Coming generations are going to live with it! We have to explore the possibilities how well we can utilise these tools, very exciting journey this is! When Google translate came similar kind of debates, arguments were around. I think people started using it wisely and I believe many using it for some great works too!
Yes, there is no shortage at all of people writing about ChatGPT (frankly I think focussing on this one implementation is missing the larger picture). One could be making lists all day of articles… but what can we do as a community?
I find AI is useful for having a bit of mocking of AI
I did use something called murf.ai to generate the voices… Having made use of text to voice synthesizers long before the AI craze, I am a little hard pressed to see what the AI is doing. It seems like something that gets slapped onto tech.
I will say the tools for doing audio transcription are working great for me- again, they state they are built with AI but how would I know? But I have been making use of Descript for editing podcasts and it changes the whole editing process.
