5 Comments on “Day 11 – Creating discussion topics

  1. Another mind blowing use of AI here! I found my 5 free generates were quickly used, just at the point I was getting deeper into it! I’m not sure this offers outputs above and beyond those that would be returned by good use of Prompts, but it is however a handy dashboard for teachers to plan, and save time!

  2. This tool is awesome. I totally agree with Darren Thompson that the free quota runs out very quickly. I was not able to do ‘another activity of your choice’. The customisation by complexity and Bloom’s taxonomy is really handy to help create discussion topics suitable for students of different levels and for different educational need. The platform looks very versatile and could allow one to generate many different types of educational activities. Perhaps, this is a third-party tool UAL could consider.

  3. This was very interesting. I asked it to generate a multiple choice question set based on WCAG accessibility standards. This was not great, tbh.
    I then gave it a task to create a worksheet in French based around the topic of new technlogies. This was definitely something that I could have used in a High School setting – although it didn’t give answers and some of the gaps or questions could have had multiple answers.
    Finally, I went onto HE and asked it to generate me a Scheme of Work very similar to this ’12 days of AI’ course that we have been doing – and it was awesome! One thing that really impressed me was that it committed one of the twelve sessions to AI and assistive technology / inclusion / equality.
    I could definitely make use of this in a variety of contexts / workshops, but I would see more use for it in Secondary school, and probably I would still be tweaking / changing the sessions to make them a bit more creative / bring in my own voice and experience. But, if you were utterly stuck for ideas, it would probably be a good starting point.

  4. This seems to be an invaluable one-stop-shop for the teacher and it’s nice to see that for all the talk of how students use AI, there is a tool that enables tutors to be creative at the touch of a button instead of wasting time scouring various sites for materials that ‘aren’t quite right’.

    It would be nice if UAL would fund a full subscription licence with all the bells and whistles for all tutors as it could have a really positive effect on the materials created for the students.

  5. Our tutors were unimpressed with this tool – they seemed to think they could generate the same results in ChatGPT with a fairly basic grasp of prompt engineering…
