tasks in acourse forumdisplays responses from all active educators in the course. Please feel free to read and respond to other people's comments.

Task 1: Who are you?

Knowing Ourselves Better is a great introduction to this course and helps us understand our individual situations and teachers' expectations.

Please take a moment to complete a 250+ word description of yourself.
Possible elements:

  • Where and what do you teach?
  • What are your expectations for this course? I especially enjoy reading your thoughts here as we really don't know where the AI ​​is going and there is a lot of fear and excitement.
  • What do you think your future robot can be and/or do for you?
  • Any other personal data of interest that you would like to be shared.

Look what ChatGPT (AI) wrote about meto the request to "write an introduction for Michael Boll". A lot of it wasn't accurate, but it certainly made me sound awesome!

Task #2: Introduction to Artificial Intelligence

General description:
Wow, what is this artificial intelligence (AI) and how should we view it? I like? Concerned? At this point, it reminds me of how we viewed the internet when it first appeared. I was thrilled to be able to go on a website, write down my favorite burrito toppings, and have my personality issues fully diagnosed. Little did I know that one day I would be 33,000 feet in the air, working on a powerful laptop and writing this paragraph for an online course. One that featured video screencasts that I recorded and edited from the comfort of my own home.

As educators, we must prepare for the potential impact of AI on our classrooms and students. There are already apps that use AI to make someone look better with the push of a button. (Yikes!) The possibilities are endless, and it's important that we stay ahead to make sure our students are prepared for a future that includes AI technology.

Watch my video: Introduction to Artificial Intelligence

Write a response of more than 250 words to at least three of the following prompts.

Him. How do you feel?

B. Is AI already part of your school life?

W. How does your school treat AI? give a guide? Turn it off?
(That doesn't work, by the way.)

D. How will this change teacher education? What about the students?

It is. When you talk to other teachers, how do they see it? they are a combination
unconscious, scared or excited?

Q. Where do you expect/think you will be in the wave of AI? ride and enjoy
positives and do you understand the negatives? Or on the receiver side like
the wave of AI will crush you.

G. What are the disadvantages of AI? Our students are already stressed enough.
Will the AI ​​fix this? Or does it serve as a good friend for emotion regulation?


Task #3: Set up your ChatGPT account

general description
Here we go! If you haven't already, it's time to create your account! This is where the fun begins, and I mean fun. I currently recommend ChatGPT for your AI needs. Most of the services use ChatGPT as the AI ​​source. This includes Bing, Microsoft's search engine. However, if you have a favorite AI provider, don't worry, use it.

Since this isn't my first time at the rodeo, I now know that if you haven't already, I may be using AI to "help" you with the writing instructions for this course. In fact, I encourage it! I used AI to help me with a ton of this course. Having grown up without AI, I can still write, but I find the AI ​​very helpful in giving me suggestions. We will learn more about this in future lessons.


  1. Watch my video: Setting up your GPT chat account.

    (Video) Al (Artificial Intelligence) for the EFL students speech recognition - Raquel Ribeiro
  2. Dirija-se achat.openai.comand set up your account. There is also a paid version. So far I'm happy with the free version. It's a bit slower and I'll probably be last in line for updates as they come in.
  3. Play! Enjoy it. Do you need ideas?check this list.
  4. Please answer at least three (3) of the following questions in 250 words or more:

Him. Explain your initial thoughts from the beginning. Easy to use? Confused?
A feeling of "How am I supposed to use this thing?
B. How did you use the AI? Where do you find this useful? Where is it missing?
w. After using AI, how would you describe it to someone you know?
a colleague, friend or family member?
D. Any other thoughts or ideas? Please share them.

5. Take your writing and put it on your AI platform with this prompt: improve it
Source: (Then insert your source.)
6. Modify your written work to add some or all of the suggestions.
7. Finally, with your final draft, use this prompt: Make Ten Fun Titles for Him
Writing: (insert your writing)
8. Add your favorite title at the top of what you wrote and send.


Task #4: A Guide to Creating Effective Metrics and Indicators, Part 1

general description
We now have an AI account; We may have done some maneuvering, but what do we do with it after the initial excitement? Well, we need to learn how to communicate with AI and for that we need to understand how to create effective messages.

Prompts are basically questions or commands that we type or say to our AI system. Requests often contain parameters as well, and parameters add rules to the request. For example, in the real world, you can tell (request) someone to come in and find her shoes. You can add some details (parameters) by telling them to pick up the small pair of shoes by the fireplace.

This exercise introduces us to the basics of prompts and parameters, and we'll go into more detail in the next lesson.


  1. Watch my video: Creating Effective Ads, Part One.
  2. Write some of your own prompts. Be sure to try a few that generate long responses. For example: "Write a 500-word explanation of why Martians are unlikely to attack Earth any time soon."
  3. Use the "Like" prompt to change the tone of the reply. Example: "Write like Dr. Dulce."
  4. Add a parameter to the same answer or to another answer to change the depth of the explanation. For example, "Explain it to a third grader."
  5. In 250 words or more, answer the following questions:

Him. What ads have you tried?
B. What "how to" ideas have you tried?
W. What additional parameters did you add to change the depth of the information?
D. How would you use prompts and parameters in your work? Only some ideas are good.
as more ideas pop into your brain later in the course.


Task #5: A Guide to Creating Effective Metrics and Indicators, Part 2

general description
Artificial intelligence (AI) is not limited to one-way conversations based on super granular prompts with many parameters. In fact, the AI ​​can participate in two-way conversations, which opens up exciting possibilities for classroom activities.

Imagine you're having a rap battle with an AI, or you're polling your students on a topic they're studying. Even better, what if AI asked your students questions and encouraged them to think outside the box and creative ways? The possibilities are endless.

For example, you can ask the AI ​​to generate questions about a student, a teacher, or even the whole class. You can then challenge your students to write a story based on their answers. This not only makes learning fun and engaging, but also encourages critical thinking and creativity.


  1. Watch my video: Creating Effective Ads, Part 2.
  2. Choose one of the following:

The. Write a notice for your AI platform and add a very specific and detailed listing
of parameters Something similar to the example of the university essay in the video.
B. Set up a two-way banner where the AI ​​asks questions and writes a story.
Something similar to my example in the video.

I. Example of a cry for help: “Ask me five questions. make sure first
the question is my name Ask me one at a time and expect me to answer each question
one. After answering all the questions, he writes a 400 word story based on
my answers. Make the story a little silly."
ii. Modify this notice as needed or come up with your own great idea.

3. Respond to the following prompts in 250 words or more:
The. What did you decide to ask your AI platform? Long and detailed notice with
Parameters or a two-way conversation?
B. How was it? Was it accurate and interesting? Or did you make mistakes?
w. Feel free to paste your notice(s) and the result. I like to read it


Task #6: AI as a teaching tool

general description
Ok guys, you are officially AI experts! Or at least you are above average. Congratulations! Now is the time to put that knowledge to good use.

I get it: At first glance, AI can seem intimidating. He's like that cool kid at school who's smart and popular but you don't know how to approach him. But do not worry; we protect you

In this lesson, we'll discuss some amazing ideas for using AI in your teaching practice. Whether you're a math teacher, history buff, or science fanatic, there's something here for everyone.

So, put on your thinking caps, grab a cup of coffee (or tea, if you prefer), and get to work. By the end of this lesson, you'll have a template tailored to your specific situation. And who knows, it could revolutionize the way we teach with AI.

Full disclosure: the synopsis above is a complete copy-paste of an AI-enhanced version of my first draft. I like the humor and the voice in it!


(Video) Integrating Machine Learning Into Your Xojo Apps

  1. Watch my video: AI as a teaching tool. Explains how to create your own resource model.

  1. AI Finder( is a great resource with over 1,000 specific apps that use AI to create videos, write sessions, create images, and more. These sites use an API (remember that?) where they exploit a huge AI model like:open AI. They then use that power to help you with very specific needs. Someday there will be one for lesson planning and more!
  2. more than 100 possibilitiesUse artificial intelligence in your classroom. This is a google sheet dump of ideas I have, as well as ones I found through my research. Maybe one day there will be more than 1000!
  3. curedInteresting article from AI Flipboard. If you're not familiar with Flipboard, it's a great visual way to share articles.


  1. Take a look at the above resources. Try a few more ideas from the 100+ list, read tons of articles on Flipboard, and explore some apps you'll find in AI Finder.
  2. In about 250 words, focus on some of the things you found in your resource exploration.
    Him. What did you especially notice?
    B. What seemed rather meaningless?
    w. What has influenced your understanding of AI the most?

Task #8: Use AI in your own life

general description
Like the Internet, AI is and will be an integral part of our personal lives. As systems like Siri and Alexa improve and add AI, we can verbally instruct them to plan vacations, menus, shopping lists, etc. helpful (mostly) guide.


  1. Listen to the hardfork podcast in the Resources section below. It is located in the middle where listeners share their interesting use cases for AI.
  2. In about 250 words, think about how you are doing or how you would like to use AI in your own life.
    Him. Are you using it now?
    B. How do you expect to use it?
    W. How will this change your world? For example, do you have more free time?
    Or is it a case of, oh, now I have more free time to work?


Task #9: Share with the community

general description
With AI and education changing so quickly, it's very helpful to share your knowledge, experiences, and achievements with others in this community. As this course matures, we will end up having a good set of shared ideas and experiences. Thank you!


  1. Think about the best uses of AI you have created and/or so far
    We look forward to using it in your situation soon.
  2. Make a list of the prompts and parameters that you found successfully.
  3. Complete this online form. This is shared as a resource on
    the course for others.



In this section you will apply what you have learned to your professional situation. This course assumes that the majority of the participants are classroom teachers who have access to the students. If you do not have a classroom available, please contact your instructor to make course changes. Completed assignments in a course forum display responses from all active instructors in the course. Please feel free to read and respond to other people's comments.

Task #10: From theory to practice: using AI to improve the flow of your class

general description
As the title suggests, this assignment challenges you to integrate AI into your daily workflow. There are so many ways to do this, and new ones are added all the time. Now that you understand how to use AI, you've created a model of how you care and have researched a variety of resources.

The key is to find AI ideas that fit your interests and career goals. So let's shake things up and embrace the AI ​​revolution! Maybe one day we'll take a coffee break with our robotic friends. (Full disclosure: AI helped write that last paragraph)

Task #11: AI and the Future of Education – Robots are Coming to Save (or Take) Your Job!

general description
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella once said: "The most exciting thing about AI is not its ability to perform tasks, but its ability to help people think better." potential advantages and disadvantages of AI in education.

A key question is how students will use AI in their learning. Will schools adopt it or ban it? And how might AI affect students' ability to learn from helpful adults, both inside and outside of the classroom? As we continue to explore the role of AI in education, it's important to approach the technology with an open mind and consider all possible implications.

Lowis the AI ​​version of my previous writing. I didn't mean it in a funny or sarcastic way; it just did. oops!
Let's talk about AI, baby! Satya Nadella, the head of Microsoft, once said that the most interesting aspect of AI is not its ability to perform tasks, but its potential to improve human thinking. And while this is certainly an optimistic view, we cannot ignore the potential downsides of AI in education.

One question we need to consider is how students will use AI in their learning. Will it be widely used or strictly prohibited? And what impact can AI have on the way students interact with their teachers and mentors? As we delve deeper into the role of AI in education, we must approach the technology with enthusiasm and caution, considering all of its potential implications.

So buckle up, Buttercup. We're about to take a wild ride through the world of AI and education. Prepare for and

explore the possibilities and remember to keep an open mind.
