AI Levels the Playing Field

A short video clip explaining how AI can level the playing field for under-prepared students

Hear how a writing professor uses AI to help under-prepared students.


Valerie Guyant:

My philosophy of AI is I guess two sides of the same coin, that is used incorrectly or improperly, you will never learn a thing, but if you use it well in a classroom, or at least in my classrooms because I teach writing, you can actually use it to help students learn instead. So I teach at a university with a lot of under-prepared students. They may have never had to create an outline or write a proper essay, and they therefore, and they may never have even seen it, and they certainly don’t often know how to take notes. So showing them the ways in which AI can help them do those things actually gets them up to a better level playing field.
