This workshop is designed to provide participants with a unique opportunity to understand and harness the potential of AI-driven text generation and specifically examine the following: 

1. ChatGPT, developed by OpenAI, is an advanced language model that employs deep learning techniques to generate text responses resembling human language.
2. Possessing the capacity to comprehend and produce text across a wide array of topics and conversational contexts, ChatGPT stands as a versatile tool with valuable applications in education.
3. Leaning on a vast corpus of internet text, ChatGPT boasts an expansive knowledge repository, offering educators invaluable support in diverse subject domains.
4. Swiftly addressing queries, elucidating intricate concepts, and providing explanations or illustrations to enrich classroom discourse are within ChatGPT's capabilities.
5. Educators can harness ChatGPT to craft prompts for creative writing exercises, fostering students' imaginative exploration and refining their writing prowess.
6. Doubling as a virtual tutor, ChatGPT aids students in their assignments and extends additional explanations whenever supplementary assistance is required.
7. Engaging in conversations, rectifying grammatical and lexical errors, and suggesting alternative sentence structures, ChatGPT becomes a proficient tool for language practice.
8. While ChatGPT, akin to any AI model, can occasionally yield incorrect or misleading responses, nurturing critical thinking and information verification remains paramount.
9. OpenAI has introduced safety mechanisms to mitigate biased or inappropriate content; nevertheless, educators must uphold their role in supervising and guiding students to ensure responsible and ethical usage of ChatGPT.
10. Inclusively incorporating discussions about AI and its limitations into the curriculum is imperative for educators, fostering a comprehensive comprehension of AI technology and its societal implications.

Video-Recorded Virtual (Zoom) Sessions and Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Recorded Session:  As an added value, all virtually-delivered programs are video recorded and accessible to our workshop registrants and Professional Learning Consortium Members subsequent to the session. Therefore, each virtually-delivered workshop and webinar will now have Zoom’s Recording Disclaimer enabled by default. With this feature, attendees will receive a notification when a recording starts or if they join a session that is already being recorded. The participant can then consent to stay in the session and be recorded or choose to leave the session altogether.

Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Virtually-Delivered Session: Actively engaging in Zoom sessions is important. Participants may have concerns, however, of a Zoom session recording capturing their participation. Meeting hosts or instructors are taking steps to minimize this concern. In addition to the consent, participants can also use the following steps and features to take control of what is shared when a session is being recorded.

  • Change your participant name displayed in Zoom (e.g. only use your first name, replace your name)
  • Disable your video
  • Mute your audio
  • Do not communicate via the chat feature
  • Do not upload an identifiable profile photo

Please refer to Zoom’s Attendee Controls for more information on how to use these features.
