In this episode of the Digital Learning Podcast, Matt Miller and Holly Clark, discuss the impact of using artificial intelligence (AI) in education and the importance of transparency when using it. The hosts mention that many students are starting to use AI assistants such as ChatGPT as they complete their schoolwork, which has left teachers in a difficult position of trying to teach students how to use AI in responsible ways while navigating the ever evolving landscape of AI themselves. Matt and Holly discuss what student transparency looks like in reference to the plagiarism graphic created by Matt (viewable below and at ditch.link/cheating).
Now that generative AI tools like ChatGPT are available, classwork is bound to change as a result. How do we preserve academic integrity? What's cheating, and what's OK? Here are some ideas.
AI for Educators book by Matt Miller
Artificial intelligence may change the world more than the iPhone, the internet, or even electricity.
It’s bound to change education. (It already has.) But how?

We can use AI to empower teaching and learning. And it can start today.
The AI Infused Classroom book by Holly Clark
Ready or not . . . AI is here. Now. And it has concerned and curious educators asking questions:
- What are the strengths and weaknesses of artificial intelligence (AI) models, like ChatGPT?
- How do ChatGPT and other large language models change things like the writing process?
- What do we need to understand about large language models (LLMs) and AI’s ability to transform how—and how quickly—we can communicate with our students and peers?
- How can we teach students to use AI appropriately and in ways that enhance their learning experiences?
With the right mindset, the right questions, and the right strategies, you can use AI to create and broaden meaningful learning experiences for every student.
