AI Will Change the Way We Learn | Approximately Correct Podcast

Artificial intelligence is already proving to be a powerful tool in the classroom, for both students and teachers. However, it might become much more than that — it holds the potential to change the way we approach educating future generations.

“I’ve seen the argument where people say ‘ChatGPT is the same as when calculators were introduced. But no, not really,” Jill Kowalchuk, Amii’s K-12 Education Advisor, says on the latest episode of the Approximately Correct podcast.

Instead, she says that AI could act as more of a collaborator in the classroom, opening up new avenues of personalized learning and other possibilities.

The latest episode of Approximately Correct explores the impact that artificial intelligence could have on education and the importance of AI literacy for students and teachers alike. Kowalchuk is joined by Amii’s Director of Scientific Operations Adam White, who is one of the co-creators of AI Everywhere, a new undergraduate course that promotes AI literacy at the University of Alberta.

They join host Alona Fyshe (AI Everywhere’s other co-creator) to talk about how educators can prepare themselves to use AI to its full educational potential and the considerations that we must take when involving AI in high school and postsecondary education.

You can hear episode two of Approximately Correct on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and other podcasting services.
