Will A.I. Make Writing as Easy as Using a Stapler? (A Conversation with TJ Wilson)
Artificial Intelligence models can now write a nearly flawless 5-paragraph essay, and educators everywhere are worried about how this could affect the profession. In addition to producing essays, people can use AI models, such as ChatGPT, to write poetry, lesson plans, and even podcast intros-–as you’ll soon find out.
In this episode, Noah talks to TJ Wilson about his recent blog post, from which we cribbed our episode's title. In this conversation, they get into whether AI should worry Language Arts teachers. They also discuss how the current AI controversy should encourage us rethink how and why we teach Writing.
