I began writing this post a while ago. However, ChatGPT and the over 300 variations on AI applications kept evolving and changing. ChatGPT was launched in late November 2022, in the three months since then there has been a range of responses to this latest technology innovation.
"Ban it" is one such immediate response. Assessments which rely on student generated descriptions and prose are under immediate threat of unfair assistance, or 'cheating'. (I suspect the same was said about dictionaries, then spell/grammar checkers.) An article in our local news service highlighted the situation when writing was first introduced..Plato was against it, as how would you know that anyone knew anything. Ironically we 'know this' because Socrates wrote about the situation.
"Embrace it" is at the other extreme. Three states in Australia (Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria) have blacklisted the ChatGPT website and banned use of AI by students. South Australia Education authorities have welcomed the opportunity for teachers and their students to learn about the latest technological tool.
How our you going to respond to the easy availability of AI assistance?
