School officials in New York and Los Angeles are considering the potential benefits of using artificial intelligence (AI) in education. While Mountain View High School in Silicon Valley currently lacks formal AI guidance, a teacher named Ms. Hancock has modified her classroom rules to allow students to use AI programs like ChatGPT for specific assignments. She believes that teaching students to use AI as a tool, rather than a shortcut, is essential. Ms. Hancock is also considering changing how she assesses students' knowledge, emphasizing conversation and discussion over written assignments. The logistics of assessing all students through conversations pose a challenge. As a result, students are left to navigate how they implement AI in their education. Ultimately, AI may lead to a reevaluation of the traditional school system.
