Hey everyone, we finally made it.
When choosing what AI tool to use, I wanted it to be simple and easy going. I tried a couple but officially settled of Diffit. Although I do not believe a teacher should strictly follow the plan and information that this AI uses, it does some provide some helpful information.
When I got to the site, I typed in Pythagorean’s Theorem and Grade 8 student level. It calculated some things and then spat out a reading summary, key concepts, key vocabulary words, multiple choice quiz questions, short answer questions, and open ended prompts to lead discussion. Some of this can be seen below:
Like I said, I definitely do not believe teachers should be satisfied with this and go explain a lesson right away. However, I do believe that the open-ended prompts could be used in one’s lesson to further relate the material to a students every day life. If a student is thinking about how they may apply concepts in mathematics outside of the classroom, odds are it was a successful lesson.
Another thing is vocabulary words. I appreciated that Diffit used these in their generation as it allows a teacher to go over terms that are important to a students knowledge. Although this is not all of the key concepts, it is a good start.
Personally, I have not had many experiences integrating AI into an educational classroom, but rather only the AI on social media. In my ECS 203 class however, we were provided a lesson plan that was generated by AI, and we dissected all of the issues that may have been created and let me tell you, there were more issues than right doings. Overall, there are some beneficial aspects but there are also some aspects that should never be used.
What AI sites did you guys use and were they as easy as Diffit? Let me know!
