My hopes for AI in Education
AI is going to be changing things fast… but nothing in education changes fast. As the tools get better and more becomes possible, the rush to offer our schools AI-powered tools. The only question is this: what will we build these tools to do?
My fear is that we will continue to do what we have done best – standardize and measure. My dream is that these tools can re-engage, show potential, lift ambitions, and bring a real joy of learning to our classrooms in new ways. It’ll take a creative implementation to pull that off … and the old way of thinking seems to reign supreme. The big money is in test scores (and raising them). If any edtech companies want a boatload of ideas for AI implementations for a creative classroom, I’m full of them!
