Original transcript used by reNotes

Hello and welcome to the first episode of the Edgy TechME Podcast. For educators and others interested in AI and other new techs, their impact on education, our classrooms, how we work and how we live. Podcast will give you insights on how you can use AI to improve your life. The introductions, the blurb at the end of the podcast and the music used in this introduction are all created using AI. So let's talk about AI. Are there three sides to the coin? Is AI a tool or is it something that we're still curious about and we're not quite sure? So let's have a chat today with some experts. Ben Newsom, Suzette Bailey, Jonathan Chap. I'm carry Benedette, your host for this episode of Edgy Tech Me. Definitely looking forward to this chat and I must say, with that list that you mentioned, just there a lot of the above, but certainly I believe that AI really is the third side of the coin. So there's a good, there's a bad, and there's the in between because when you kind of think about it, it really is what you make of it and how you use it. Definitely. So, Jackie, any thoughts around that? Well, I'm fascinated by new technology and anything that humankind can imagine will eventually come to pass. And this is the latest one that I'm aware of and I think it can really help facilitate people's lives. So we're moving into the next Industrial Revolution and AI is leading the charge on this one. Unlike a lot of all previous and post Industrial Revolution situations, it can be quite unconfronting. It's a time of change. There's both positive and negatives to all of this. And ultimately, AI is a tool. It's a very powerful tool, but it is still ultimately a tool and it can be used well and it can be used badly. It can be used to empower us and it can also be used to actually bring us down. I'm really looking forward to this podcast because we're going to be exploring some of the aspects of AI and how it can enrich our lives, but also some of the things that we need to be aware of so that we can make sure that we're risk mitigating ourselves, both in classrooms, in our work, in our lives, but also prepare ourselves for this change that is happening even if we don't want it to. I love the fact that we're going to actually inform ourselves about what we don't know, because often we see the negatives far more strongly than the positives because we're not sure. We actually don't know the facts. So AI is a tool. We are the beneficiaries of that right now and there's many aspects and change is happening exponentially around us at the moment. And I think that's the best place to be to be informed, then use them. What do you think? Yeah, absolutely. I mean, I love what you mentioned about the way this is going in terms of how we interpret how negative it is. It kind of reminds me about how we interpret when we get a test score. So we get nine out of ten and then you bring it to your parents. You're really excited because you got nine out of ten and your parent goes, what happened to the one? What's with that? And so I figured that we are very good at picking up the negative and we're also less good at picking up the positive. And so what we'd like to do is really practice from a balance point of view and think about it is the tool. This is what was mentioning and well, let's do something about it because it is coming no matter what, and we're going to have some great conversations in the following weeks. But Suzette, tell us about your world, because you're very much involved with using AI to make things simple. I dispute about it coming because it's actually already here. AI is already part of our lives. If you're using Siri on your iPhone or Google on your Google device, or if you're actually watching Netflix or anything like that, you're actually already using AI. You're not really thinking about it. It's just part of your life. But it's there and moving forward, there's a lot of technology that we're going to find coming in. I work in a business that actually has AI has now got to the point where it can write indistinguishably from humans and in fact writes better than some humans in a lot of cases. And it can be a little bit confronting. This is going to be a topic that we deal with in future episodes around what are the implications for schools and academics around this sort of area. If you can get an AI to write the first draft of content for your assignment for school, for instance. Wow, there's an interesting concept. Jonathan, I don't know about you and I might have a particular view on should someone else write our work for us? Well, firstly, picking up on a couple of things that have already been said. None of us know what we don't know, so we have to inform the people of why we're going to be using this or suggesting why we want to use it. And in terms of actually writing things, I mean, humankind has always moved towards automation when it possibly can for repetitive tasks. But we also know that there needs to be consistency in the product in many cases. And I think that this is going to assist people in actually producing what they need to produce more efficiently in a more consistent way that is more powerful to its audience. I'm just thinking about the various layers that you can produce that for education. If we're going down the writing path, of course we could go say, AI, go write me this thing, I'll see you in five minutes. And thanks so much. I'm going to hand that in and it's clearly not your work. Then you can go to the level where you write out almost like a rough draft and it polishes it. And I suppose somewhere in there is where we're really looking at potentially in the future. I don't know, what are your thoughts on that? In a lot of ways it's probably going to be more the other way around. It writes the first draft for it and you polish it because ultimately you're absolutely right. When AI and this kind of technology is great for doing the repetitive side, it's great for doing the grunt work repetitive. As you mentioned, Jonathan, that's perfect example of things. So get it to do the heavy lifting and then us as humans, we're messy, we're inconsistent, but we're geniuses at what we do. And so that's where the magic happens when we bring AI technology and humans together. Because us as humans can then take what the AI has done and actually finesse it and actually embolden it and actually make it work for the purpose of needing and coming back to that school one, for instance, that's just the tip of the iceberg. Like, what is that the implications for plagiarism? Well, ultimately, if the student is still providing that finesse, does it actually still meet the requirements of plagiarism? These are some of the aspects that we'll be talking about. Well, I can see some major benefits for time efficiencies. We're all talking about wellbeing and work life balance. So I can see it being used for some really good purposes, like time efficiencies. You know what? That would be great for me. And if it means that I get out to exercise and walk or spend some more time with the family, that's exactly what I want to do. And I agree with that entirely because if we're talking about teachers, for example, in writing of reports, this is a very stressful time for them because particularly the end of the year when everything's coming to a conclusion and wellness is part of wellness, of course, is mental wellness, mental wellbeing. And if you can reduce the stress on people, you're going to reduce the negative aspects of their mental health and actually boil them up, which is fantastic. That is a cracking reason to actually be part of the conversation and learn about the benefits of it, I think, and how to use AI so well. Your spot on, Jonathan. Absolutely. And I kind of think about if the output is produced by AI, perhaps the real work is in comprehension because once you understand what's going on, then you really are doing the job of what the teacher really want to do in the first place is not just spit out content for content's sake, but actually understand it and interpret it, which I think is really the higher order skill that we're really aiming for. Right? Yeah, very much. That's exactly how I feel about it as well is that the AI is doing the heavy lifting in the case of writing here, but in the case of, for instance, finding us a movie on Netflix or something like that, it's doing the heavy lifting. But we're ultimately still the one in control and we're still the one providing that insight and that oversight over the information. And ultimately understanding is the key in learning, isn't it? Just knowing a few things and being able to regurgitate them really isn't actually affecting anything. May I just say? And just if we're using school reports as an example, you could produce and this increases the efficiency of the people who produce them significantly and materially, it could produce three reports, one for the student, one for the school, and one for the parents. Absolutely. You mentioned before shack about the time mental well being. That thing is real. It's very real. I've been lucky enough, privileged enough to be able to go to many schools over the years to do the sort of work I do. And every time at the end of semester it's always dark circles under people's eyes. There's always I just can't fit enough in. And that's just the reality of the entire teaching sector. And it seems to me like a problem we're solving. It's worth investigating because more and more where we're looking for tools to simplify or to access things quickly, we're living in a very quick, instantaneous world at the moment. So I would like to have access to do more of the things I love to do and be really efficient in the work that I do. So I'm looking forward to all our conversations because for each episode we're going to be talking about particular types of AI and how we can use them to continue our learning, to continue being curious and be able to have an understanding that is true and maybe take away some of the bias. We get enough. We have a bias towards discussions or perceptions of what we think something is all about. So let's really talk about the truth and share it with everybody and encourage you to be part of the conversation with us. Perfectly. Better said, you've left us speechless. Yes, I think that's right. And I think there are so many things that we don't know and so many people have different opinions. And if we can come to this sort of podcast and this hopefully educational vehicle, is that we come with open minds and that we can share things that we know better than someone else or we think we do and just see where it takes us because this is a very exciting path. And if it's driven by or inspired by AI, it's going to run and run and run. I love it. So if you want to get involved in this conversation, definitely reach out to us. There will be information in the show notes for sure. And as we go along, this can be quite interesting chat. We'll see you next time. Make sure you've got your questions ready. Tell your friends, your colleagues all about this. We all are curious beings. Continual learning is one of our greatest aspirations, and also the way that we continue to stay up to date, that we're not fearful of anything that's new. And we have a great understanding of how best we can use all these tools to our advantage. So over to you now, listeners. See you next episode. Thanks for listening to this Edgy Tech podcast episode. We really hope you enjoyed it. You can find more engaging episodes at a GTech me on how AI is changing our lives, our classrooms, and how we work.
