It’s essential to recognize that while Generative Artificial Intelligence offers valuable tools, the role of a teacher as a facilitator, mentor, and guide remains crucial. The key is to balance leveraging AI’s capabilities and maintaining the core principles of effective teaching, including fostering critical thinking, creativity, and a love of learning.
In Episode 248 of Class Dismissed, we speak with Dr. Tim Dasey. He has a new book titled “Wisdom Factories: AI, Games, and the Education of a Modern Worker.” Dasey has been part of the AI world since the 80s when machine learning was born. At MIT Lincoln Laboratory, he engineered and led AI developments for national defense, homeland security, transportation and logistics, biomedical, public health, and disaster management applications.
“We’re going to need the ability to understand if AI is spuing B.S. at us,” says Dasey.
In this episode, you’ll hear Dasey discuss the future capabilities of AI, and the necessary strategies needed to transform how we educate our students. Dasey also analyzes why this AI wave differs from previous technological advancements in the classroom and why it’s so important for educators to adapt.
