Ippolito speaks to WFVX about AI in education
Jon Ippolito, professor of new media at the University of Maine, spoke to WFVX-TV (Fox 23/ABC 7 in Bangor) about educators dealing with students using AI for assignments. According to Ippolito, the best solution for educators to prevent their students from abusing AI on assignments is to change the assignments themselves. “There’s a lot of ways you change your syllabi to adapt to these new applications. One would be to make sure you do things that only students can do, only humans can do. So for example, reacting to something that just happened in class or something that’s local to your own community,” Ippolito says.
