In a previous CIDDL blog, we provided a step-by-step usage guide of this emerging technology known as ChatGPT. The artificial intelligence (AI) tool, which launched at the end of 2022, has been sending shockwaves through the world of education. Questions about how to determine if an AI wrote a paper or a human, the impact of AI on cheating, and how AI will change how we teach are circulating among communities. And, making national news, is the number of districts whose immediate response is to ban these technologies, such as New York, Los Angeles, and Baltimore.

With the launch of ChatGPT, talks of how AI will change the classroom are making headlines across the nation.

One of the possible silver linings of the pandemic has been the proliferation of available mobile devices (e.g., iPad, Chromebooks, Smartphones) across our preK-12 learning environments. Where once schools were considering whether to purchase mobile learning carts or add a computer lab, technology investments today find an overwhelming majority of preK-12 learners (some estimates suggest over 85%) with access to their own mobile learning device. With increased investments, teachers and learners are increasingly relying on the device as a foundational element of instruction and subsequent learning.

In the last few years, artificial intelligence (AI) has had a major impact on mathematics learning in the classroom. From virtual math tutors and apps to interactive calculators and problem-solving programs, AI has revolutionized how students learn math. With AI-powered tools such as Photomath, Desmos, Geogebra, and Microsoft Math Solver, math has become easier to understand, analyze and solve.
