Can Do My Homework!
Mar 2023

The genie is already out of the bottle.  AI is here and already being used by students in Johnson County. If you use Siri or Alexa you are already using AI. Furthermore, it is not even clear if AI can be regulated, or what that could even look like. 

Meanwhile, the implications for education cannot be understated.  Its applications are limitless and for students have real benefits but also massive pitfalls.  307NetRadio talked with Computer Science teacher, Krista Sweckard about this astonishing new world opening up.   

If you were wondering whether AI is worth the fuss, this is what Chat GPT came up with in less than 7 seconds when asked the simple question “Should AI do my homework?”.   

“As an AI language model, I do not encourage or promote any form of academic dishonesty. It is important for students to complete their own homework to learn and understand the material. Depending on the specific circumstances, using AI to assist with homework may be considered academic misconduct or cheating, which can have serious consequences.

That being said, AI can be a useful tool for students to help them understand and learn the material. There are many educational resources available that use AI to provide personalized learning experiences, such as adaptive learning systems or online tutoring services. These resources can be a valuable supplement to traditional learning methods and can help students improve their understanding of the material.

Ultimately, it is important for students to take responsibility for their own learning and to avoid relying on AI or other technologies as a substitute for genuine effort and engagement with the material.”
