Technology leaders, non-profit and educational organizations are teaming up to form TeachAI, a Code.org-led effort to help educators both use artificial intelligence in the classroom and explain to their students how the technology works.
Hadi Partovi, co-founder and CEO of Code.org, relates the story that when ChatGPT launched last year, he showed it to his children, and his 16-year-old son asked, "Can I use this for homework?" and then immediately added, "Wait, what's the point of school if this can do it all?"
Education is perhaps the sector most challenged by the advent of generative AI and ChatGPT in particular. One response is to ban its use, but this would be as shortsighted as telling builders not to use power tools but do everything manually. The approach advocated by TeachAI - that of preparing students for an AI-driven world - is far more enlightened.
