Between the Chapters: Artificial Intelligence
In this episode of Between the Chapters, Laura chats with Chris Gilliard about artificial intelligence (A.I.) in educational technology from Chapter 23 of Martin’s book. If you don’t follow the prolific Twitter account of @hybervisible — you should. He’s been railing against the broad, sweeping claims ed tech vendors make about A.I. and outcomes of these software/systems in higher ed for a while. How does ed tech codify teaching, learning, and administration needs at our universities and colleges with a.i.? If things seem magical or improbable, we need to have more critical questions and understanding of how these “black boxes” work for our campus stakeholders. We talk about how robots may or may not be coming for our jobs, and what we need to understand about the technologies implemented for our work.

Questions and thoughts for the community:
- If the ed tech tool seems magical or improbable for what it can do — it probably is.
- What’s the impact for the platforms and ed tech tools you use?
- What kind of agency/choice do your campus stakeholders have for the platforms they have to use for teaching/learning/research?
- Does anyone have examples of student surveys/interview questions you used to revaluate ed tech tools you are evaluating?
