Jill S Jill S (Mar 13 2023 11:16AM) : Commandments more

As a teacher, I don’t want to police my students or their writing. I think the use of AI might force more authentic and personal topics for writing assignments" in class because it will be tempting for many students to use it if teachers assign general topics that already are common knowledge to experts. We need to think about how AI can be part of a student’s writing circle, and not a paper generator. And, that means schools need to make sure students are invested in topics, are able to include their opinions and can write about touchy and debatable topics — some with no solutions or even hard evidence yet!

Paragraph 46, Sentence 1 0
No sentence-level conversations. Start one.
