ChatGPT, artificial intelligence | Excluding controversial bot language warns: – It will weaken Norway’s chances

– It’s quite classic, to go straight to say that’s hideous and scary, tech guru Torgir Waterhouse tells Netavien.

It’s similar to the argument about using calculators in high school, that your math skills should go straight to hell. It may be so for some, but it probably has nothing to do with the calculator, he says.

ChatGPT artificial intelligence has taken over the world before Christmas. Now, big investors like Microsoft Be prepared to pour large sums of money into the company behind it.

But the language bot is causing headaches for schools, who fear that students will use the service to copy and steal during homework and tests. As a result, the Directorate of Education decided to shut down the internet During exams in several subjects in high school.

Waterhouse believes there are many advantages to including the use of language robots in teaching:

– It is a method of collecting knowledge, which you can read to learn about a field. Get more views, even if you don’t necessarily have to use text directly, he says.

– In addition, you can create texts that you can process and work on and that you can analyze, says Waterhouse.

– He should be in school

The most important thing, he explained, is for pupils to learn to understand how technology is used, and what this development means.

– It’s something students should really understand, what this means. What can we trust, and what we can’t, says Waterhouse.

He adds:

– The answer here is that you must have it in school. You don’t have to take it out.

Waterhouse believes that Norwegian pupils will have gaps in their proficiency, if language penalty is not included in the teaching. And that the Norwegian and Norwegian working life in the long run will be weaker in competition with other countries.

– The other thing they will learn may be necessary and in time, but there will be a big gap, he says.

– This gap relates to having good tools available, to learn and to work as well as possible. And it’s about knowing how to do that. In the same way we need to know how the media works, for example, says Waterhouse.

– Norway’s chances will weaken

He believes that Norwegian students will be at a disadvantage in competition with students from other countries, if language robots are not integrated into teaching.

– Norwegian students will perform poorly in competition compared to others. He says we as a country.

He adds:

– When you and I enter working life, Norwegian working life will be at a disadvantage in competition if we have gaps in our competencies. This will weaken Norway’s chances.

– You must have control

Seif Soros Valland, president of the National Association for Norwegian Education, is confident that Norwegian students should learn about language robots. But he says the actual use of technology in school must take place under controlled conditions.

– We have no choice, you say. Students should learn about this.

– But we must control when to use this, and when it is appropriate to use it, you say.

Valland believes it is important for teachers to control the tools and aids that pupils use.

We should be allowed to use our professional judgment to assess that, you say.

Until then, we can’t throw ourselves into it. These digital tools must be subject to approval and analysis. And this did not happen for a long time, Valland says.

– Just a matter of time

Øystein Gilje is Professor of Competency Development and Innovation in Schools at NTNU. He believes that much of the controversy surrounding ChatGPT has centered around its use in delivering an end product.

Something that affects homework, exams and home exams with Internet access.

– You can also see it as something being used in the process. This means that in some cases teachers use it in some teaching plans, he says.

– Today, ChatGPT is a service that only requires an email to log in. Millions of test users help improve the language model. But a teacher today cannot say students should use it as part of teaching, because the services are not approved by those who own the schools, which in turn are municipalities and county councils, Gilgi says.

It also marks the supplier of well-known school software such as Excel, Word and Teams, as one of the driving forces behind artificial intelligence.

– But one of the biggest investors in OpenAI is Microsoft, and Microsoft products are already in use in schools. So it is only a matter of time before ChatGPT is integrated into these products. The search engine Bing will likely have many of these posts as early as March of this year, he says.

He points out:

Teachers now have a short period of time to learn about technology. Because the day students get access to license-based products, they must decide whether they want to use it or not, and then they must be aware of it.

Mathematics vs. Norwegian

Algorithmic thinking has been part of the curriculum since 2020, Gilgi says, but primarily within mathematics, and partly within social studies.

– This new understanding of AI, often called AI literacy, is something language teachers have to deal with. Mathematics teachers use it, while many Norwegian teachers think it has nothing to do with their subject. In subjects that don’t have this in the curriculum, Gilje says, you have to discuss whether to include it.

– And it is already mentioned in the general section, so there is no problem for language teachers to teach about this topic even if there is no concrete methodological goal that directly affects the topic, he said.
