Schools should be using AI applications - expert

From Morning Report, 6:49 am on 24 January 2023

An artifical intelligence and education expert says schools should use AI technology to improve assessments and foster original thinking in students. 

The New South Wales and Queensland Governments have banned students from using AI applications, including ChatGPT, while at school.

ChatGPT is a chatbot that answers queries with human-like responses.

Teachers at all levels globally are concerned it could be used by students to cheat.

Morning Report producer Jemima Huston spoke to Charles Darwin University's Academic Lead for Quality Initatives in Education Strategy, Stefan Popenici, who has published a book exploring the opportunities and risks of using AI in education.
