Yep. There's been a big push to position the skilled trades as a viable, and perhaps superior career path. 40% of new jobs in 2025 will be in the skilled trades. The crazy thing is that an AI might one day be able to: "Design a 57 storey building with 476 apartments, 30% of which are 700 square foot 1 bedroom, 30% are 1200 square foot 2 bedroom... with a 3 floor penthouse suite and a 3 floor parking garage on a lot which measures... apply design elements consistent with such and such and use the following materials." Know what the AI won't be able to do? Lay the bricks.

I have to say I am impressed that you have embraced this as a teaching tool, I was thinking teachers would really fear this as it puts an end to take home student assignments. Is there any way you can tell if an assignment a student submits is created by ChatGPT?OntEdTchr wrote: ↑ I've already found so many exciting use cases as a teacher. My students and I have been playing around with it. This will definitely require some necessary shifts in education. For too long, we've been focusing on the final product rather than evaluate the thought process involved in creating it. Formulating the right questions, recognizing which parts of the response need to be revised, identifying opportunities for more specific connections etc. should be the focus of assessment. ChatGPT can do a wonderful job of writing an essay explaining how the experiences and perspectives of the characters in The Handmaid's Tale reflect or challenge dominant narratives and cultural assumptions about race, gender, and class, and how those issues intersect in the context of the text. What ChatGPT can't do is tell me why I should care, or how that analysis should inform my actions and thoughts. But student papers don't do that now. You see educators on Twitter ranging from elementary school to graduate school posting examples of test/exam/essay questions and saying that ChatGPT's answer would score better than most of their students. If there was any doubt that our education systems have been tragically falling behind the rest of society, it should now be gone. And already there are people calling for everything to go back to paper and pencil. You can't put the genie back in the bottle.

Probably. There are enough opportunities for students to produce work in class that you can tell if the products they submit are consistent with all of the other observations and evidence that inform your opinion. Engaging in conversations with students about their work after they've turned it in is another way to check that they actually understood what they submitted. In that respect, ChatGPT is no different than having a tutor write it, or Fiverr, or submitting an older sibling's work who had the same teacher and wrote the same assignment. Educators also need to learn about the limitations of the tool and emphasize those. For example, several have pointed out that much of the stuff it produces lacks a sort of connection to the reader that addresses the question of "So what?" or "What do you want me to do with this information?" It can get there, eventually, through an ongoing process of prompting, but that process itself requires knowledge and understanding of the material. Simply copying/pasting an essay prompt and submitting the first thing it produces likely won't cut it.

“I foresee a lot of people losing their jobs, unfortunately. It’s coming for everyone,” he said. “The era of the creator is coming to an end. It’s going to be the era of the idea person and the idea person is going to use all these magical tools and build things out.”
“No white-collar job is going to be spared, not even the musicians,” Mayya added, noting this could do anything from content writing, architecture — all the way up to filling in for the CEO of a company.
Are we even ready for what’s coming? Like ChatGPT can already do 90% of all white collar jobs in existence.
Where are these people going to go? How are they going to pay off existing loans? How are they going to earn? (not earn less, they’ll earn 0)

I think you can add journalists to the list. Nothing stopping it from creating human sounding news articles online about any topic. Heck you could start your own news website with just ChatGPT writing all the articles you ask it to at a fraction of the cost of a major news site and make $ from ads, you would just need some bodies for the fact-checking if you're into that sort of thing.ADenariusSaved wrote: ↑ ChatGPT: Everything to know about the viral, ‘groundbreaking’ AI bot
