Video Summary

In this webinar, hosted by Inter-faces, Ritchie Wong brings together educators, students, and ed-tech founders together to discuss three dimensions to AI integration in education: ally, adversary, and alignment.

Ritchie asks each speaker how AI has been most useful to them in their role (as a learner, educator, or ed-tech founder), how AI as been most disappointing, and what excites them most about the future of AI. By bringing multiple perspectives together, this webinar helped break down the silos and broaden each group's perspectives on the challenges and potential of AI integration in educaiton.

Here are timestamps and key points covered by each speaker:

  1. Jason Chan (0:01): Jason shares how he's used AI as a medical student to improve his own learning, which led him to create PDF2Anki, a popular AI-powered learning application geared towards medical students.

  2. Rexan Wong (0:40): Rexan shares how his learning journey as a high school student has been accelerated by AI, particularly because AI has enabled him to use APIs from AI companies to tinker and build applications.

  3. Justin Cerenzia (11:47): Justin shares about his unique role at The Episcopal Academy, how he's worked with educators to show them that AI can help with a very broad variety of tasks, and shares how he's enjoyed exploring teaching and learning focused use cases through his school's use of Flint.

  4. Sohan Choudhury (23:07): Sohan shares about his experience building Flint with the help of AI, the challenges that educators are facing with assessment redesign due to AI, and how adaptive assessments powered by AI may be the path forward for successful integration of the technology in schools.

Ritchie then concludes the webinar by reflecting on the importance of asking quality questions and having collaborative dialogues to chart the path forward for AI in education.
