Show notes

Rob and Jared discovered that ChatGPT (version 3.5) presents a rather constructivist philosophy of education, focusing on being student-centered, developing critical thinking, and creating opportunities for collaboration and cooperation. When pressed for the origins of this philosophy, ChatGPT referenced several prominent theorists, including Piaget and Vygotsky. Overall, Jared and Rob were relatively impressed with the answers but felt that they were rather boilerplate and biased. It is important to remember that ChatGPT was programmed by individuals who come with their own biases, so there will always be some subjectivity, even though AI is perceived to be objective.  

Jared plans on employing ChatGPT in his summer course, asking students to use ChatGPT as a tool during different stages of the writing process. He will give a report at the close of the series.
