Are you curious about the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the world of learning and education? With all the buzz surrounding AI’s potential, it’s crucial to sift through the hype and grasp a realistic understanding of what AI can truly offer in the realm of learning design.
In our latest position paper, “Artificial Intelligence in Designing Learning: Unpacking the Hype,” Clark Quinn, the Chief Learning Strategist at Upside Learning addresses some of the myths and realities associated with AI. Despite the tremendous progress, we reveal that we are still far from achieving Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) – a system akin to human mental capabilities. Understanding the limitations of current AI systems is crucial to avoid unrealistic expectations and undue fears of AI domination.
Ethics is another critical aspect that the paper delves into. It also envisions how AI can complement and enhance learning experiences by processing content, personalizing learning paths, and providing valuable insights. However, it also emphasizes the irreplaceable role of human creativity and context in designing meaningful practice and skill development.
At Upside Learning, we advocate a collaborative and practical approach to AI integration – recommending using it for automating rote tasks and as a thought partner for creating content in tandem with human expertise.
