Check out this new CANVA feature! 👏Teachers, we already know how awesome CANVA is, right?! I use it for everything…blog images, worksheets for class, PowerPoints for teaching, designs for social media, and the list goes on! However, they have released a new mind-blowing feature- AI (artificial intelligence) on their DOCS template. The possibilities with this are innumerable!
BENEFITS OF AI IN THE CLASSROOM
✏️ As a writing teacher, one of the most common problems I observe with students is getting started on a paper (writer’s block). This could be used to give students ideas on how to start a paper. Why not take the piece of writing and go through it, together, pointing out the strengths of the writing or what could be added to make it better? In addition, teachers can also have students research and validate the reliability and validity of the piece before them. This certainly covers important objectives, concepts and, if in Texas, your TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills). The options are endless! 👍🏻
HOW CAN WE EMBRACE AI IN THE CLASSROOM?
It was actually a student of mine that first introduced the capability of the AI application to me. I couldn’t believe it!!! Once I checked it out, I knew there would be differing opinions. I knew there would be some that point to the plagiarism aspect. However, I think we need to embrace and discuss this with our students in the classroom. It’s here (like it or not), our students know about it, and we can use it to their benefit.
Check out this video from @Algebramadesimple speaking of this new CANVA feature below. Let me know your thoughts and how you would use this in your classroom.
While on TikTok the other day, one of the best ways I saw AI being used was having the program write a lesson plan. 👀 Ponder on that for a minute, teachers. It sure sounds like this might not only benefit our students but us as well! Wow!!
