Generative AI is the cheapest, easiest way to cheat ever invented, and the vast majority of students are using it.

GovTech: Pilot Program Asks Profs to Experiment With AI in Education

A short summary of the PowerNotes AI Unity Initiative as reported on by Aaron Gifford of GovTech.

“Part of the worry about how students might use a tool like ChatGPT is rooted in an apparently pervasive belief that students would much rather cheat than do the work. I still believe students want to learn, but this means giving them something worth doing.”

John Warner

Writing Professor

On ChatGPT: “While the tool may be able to provide quick and easy answers to questions, it does not build critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, which are essential for academic and lifelong success.”

New York City Department of Education

“Navigating a new world with ChatGPT may be challenging in some ways, but it also may provide faculty with opportunities to make their classrooms more inclusive and further improve student writing. If we view ChatGPT as a tool, rather than a threat, maybe (just maybe) a future world with ChatGPT will be a world with more “good” writers.”

Sarah Parsons, Hannah Davis, Rene Caputo, and Miranda Welsh

Duke Thompson Writing Program (TWP) Faculty

“If you can create an atmosphere where students are invested in learning, they are not going to reach for a workaround. They are not going to plagiarize. They are not going to copy, they are not going to dodge the work. But the work has to be worth doing on some level, beyond getting the grade.”

John Warner

Writing Professor

“Educators would do well to find a way not only to live with the technology but also to incorporate it into our pedagogies. Training students to become good critical readers and effective editors is an ambitious goal, one that will require a major shift for many of us, but it also is a challenge we would do well to embrace sooner rather than later.”
