Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Education

In today's digital age, the rapid advancements in technology have opened new avenues for educational engagement and support. One such groundbreaking innovation that has gained significant attention is Artificial Intelligence (AI) large language chatbots. These intelligent systems have revolutionized the way we interact with computers, enabling us to communicate, create, and learn in ways that were previously unimaginable.


Tools such as ChatGPT and Bard possess the remarkable ability to understand and generate human-like text. Many educators have found these technologies to be invaluable tools that help save time and individualize learning, while others have expressed concern over students utilizing these tools to cheat on school assignments. 

Here are some ideas for educators to use AI in the classroom:



Many educators are already incorporating ChatGPT and other similar tools into their lessons, teaching students how to use these tools to their benefit without abusing them.

Responsible Use of Artificial Intelligence


Because AI is such a new phenomenon, students must be taught how and when to use it responsibly. A good starting point would be to initiate a class discussion about appropriate and inappropriate uses of AI. You may wish to refer to the CV Discipline webpage, specifically the documents titled “Academic Dishonesty Definitions” and “CV Discipline Code” which together define Academic Dishonesty and provide examples of Tier I and Tier II interventions. You can find those documents on the Student Support Services Discipline webpage (Discipline Code / Academic Dishonesty Definitions)


Here are some tools available to educators to assist in detection of AI produced text:

None of the following tools are a foolproof method of AI detection, however they may give you an idea of whether a piece of work was produced by AI (keeping in mind that it may fault in either direction...not detecting work that is AI produced, or saying work is AI produced that is actually original).


While there is no magic bullet for detecting AI produced content, teachers should rely on their knowledge of their students’ abilities and standard of work to first determine whether a student genuinely produced the work that they turned in. If a student is suspected or found to have committed Academic Dishonesty, teachers should implement Tier I classroom interventions such as having a conversation with the student about Academic Dishonesty, providing appropriate re-teaching and supports, and calling parents. Should the behavior continue, Tier II interventions by an Administrator may be necessary.
