Artificial Intelligence Tools

 Tools like ChatGPT, Magic Write, and Moonbeam can write good responses to most essay questions (especially if it is also on a US curricluum) and have collaborated to create a tool that detects writing created by AI. The tool is called AI Writing Check and it’s available for free to any teacher who wants to use it.  (There will be others but this is the first we've heard of and tested)

To use AI Writing Check you simply have to copy a passage of text of 100 or more words and paste it into AI Writing Check. The tool will then tell you the likelihood that the writing has or has not been created by artificial intelligence. Watch this video to see AI Writing Check in action.

It isn't foolproof and students can still develop ways to get around tools designed to detect AI-generated writing. 

While some schools are trying to ban tools like ChatGPT, the reality is that students will try to use them anyway. Rather than spending a lot of effort banning AI tools, have discussions with students about responsible use of those tools. I’m sure that someone or some group is already working on incorporating those types of discussions into their digital citizenship curriculum.  (with thanks to Richard Byrne Feb 2023)
