AI Today

  I wanted to take a minute to remind everyone that AI is not a future concept. It is here today. Over the holiday season, make some time to play on the website It can write, chat, and create images based on prompts from users. It’s   really   good. Your students know may know about this. They may already be passing off AI writing as their own.   Want to know how good it is? Here’s a couple examples. I told openAI to write a script for a sitcom featuring the grinch and a large talking cockroach. This is its response. Up next, I asked openAI If George Washington ran for President of the USA today, would he win the election. ELA Teachers, you can use this to your advantage.

Squatter 25 - Eduprotocols Introduction

Anyway, this Squatter is a little light on content, but look for Squatter 26, 27, and 28 (at least) to contain more great lesson frameworks from the Eduprotocols book series.
