AI – Craziness

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!

    Hey Evan! Thanks for sharing your findings on using Diffit! I also agree with you that AI should be used to enhance learning and not to replace a teacher’s job. Diffit is also a great tool to aid with differentiation. If you are teaching this lesson to your class but have some students at a lower reading level, you can use this AI tool to create text resources at different reading levels that still provides the same main ideas.

      Hey, yes exactly! Like I said, I do believe these AI tools provide some positive aspects to us upcoming teachers. As long as we are not relying on it to do our work for us then I think it could be a beneficial aspect in growing our database, knowledge and lesson plans.

    I am in the same boat. I’ve used Diffit for one of my health lessons. I used it as a starting point. I did not use all of the information it offered. I summarized and rephrased the information. I was running on a few hours of sleep and had to create a lesson within an hour. I appreciated the slides that Diffit generated and ended up using the KWL chart. That was probably my favourite part! Thanks for sharing.

      Hey, I don’t blame you! Teaching can be exhausting and lots of teachers spend too much time outside of work hours planning for upcoming days. Using some information and still planning/preparing adequately for the day is good in my opinion! I hope your teaching experience is going smoothly and you are enjoying it!

    Hey Evan!
    Thank you so much for showing this resource! The site i used was ChatGPT, and i used a variety of prompts just to test the limits on it. It was scary how well it worked. This seems like a great resource to have under your belt, and thanks again for sharing it
