Transformative Principal

This episode is part of the Summer of AI Series, brought to you by SchoolAI, Scrible, and FocalPointK12.

  • Generative AI offers many advantages for educators, for use in and out of the classroom.
  • When I prompt for images of "a focused student," the first three are boys, two are white, the third is an Asian boy, and the fourth is an apparent high school female.
  • If my anecdotal examples haven't convinced you, try for yourself, or refer to a respected resource on this subject, which characterizes how bias is becoming a more obvious concern while producing these realistic images.
  • In essence, this makes collected information static, yet dynamic in how AI returns the content.
  • In the first example, I added one word, "diverse."
  • "Write a song that promotes understanding and empathy between people from different walks of life."
