    AI in schools creates greater risk for marginalized students, researchers find

    enSeptember 22, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Misunderstanding of AI use in classroomsDespite a majority of students using generative AI for non-academic purposes, many teachers mistakenly believe that students are using it to write and submit papers, leading to potential misconduct and harm for students with disabilities.

      The implementation of generative AI in classrooms has led to a significant mismatch between what students are actually doing and what teachers believe they're doing. This discrepancy can result in mistrust and an adversarial relationship between teachers and students. According to a new report from the Center For Democracy and Technology, while 58% of students have used generative AI for academic or personal reasons, only 19% have used it to write and submit a paper. However, 60% of teachers believe that students have done so. This misunderstanding can lead to chaos in the classroom and disproportionately impact students with disabilities, who are more likely to use generative AI and get in trouble as a result. With only a quarter of teachers receiving guidance from their schools on how to respond to suspected misuse, it's crucial that policies and practices around generative AI are reevaluated to prevent harm to protected classes of students.

    • Considering civil rights implications when implementing AI for student monitoringSchools must prioritize protecting students' civil rights when deploying AI technologies for monitoring digital activity, especially in Title 1 schools and for students with disabilities.

      Schools and school districts need to be aware of the potential civil rights implications when implementing AI technologies for monitoring student digital activity. Elizabeth Laird from the Center For Democracy and Technology emphasized this point, stating that existing civil rights protections should be considered to ensure AI deployment doesn't infringe on students' rights, particularly in Title 1 schools and for students with disabilities. The report co-authored by Elizabeth, which is available on marketplace tech dot org, reveals that schools monitor digital activity not only on devices issued by them but also on students' personal devices. This monitoring can have real-life consequences, including visits from law enforcement. As schools continue to implement AI technologies, it's crucial to prioritize protecting students' civil rights and ensuring these technologies are used ethically.

    Progressive TikTok creators turn against Biden

    Progressive TikTok creators turn against Biden

    About a third of adults under 30 regularly get their news on TikTok, according to the Pew Research Center. And in this election season, the messages from young, left-leaning creators on the short-form video app are pretty different from last time around. In 2020, a coalition of influencers united to back presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign, and historically high youth turnout helped propel him to a win. But after almost four years of the Biden presidency, the TikTok tide has turned, according to Taylor Lorenz, online culture columnist at The Washington Post, who recently wrote about this shift.

    The making of Sam Altman

    The making of Sam Altman

    The overnight success of ChatGPT helped turn Sam Altman, CEO of its maker, OpenAI, into one of the most powerful people in tech. At a conference hosted by Bloomberg last summer, Altman was asked why we should trust him with so much power, and in response, Altman said, “You shouldn’t.” And yet, throughout his career, Altman has managed to win the trust of Silicon Valley’s kingmakers with ease. In the latest season of Bloomberg’s podcast “Foundering,” journalist Ellen Huet tries to understand Altman’s rise to power. Marketplace’s Lily Jamali spoke to Huet about what she learned.

    AI concerns stall contract negotiations between game companies and actors

    AI concerns stall contract negotiations between game companies and actors

    Big-budget video game producers and the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, the union representing voice-over actors and motion-capture stunt workers, have been negotiating a new labor contract since last September. And union leaders say those talks have stalled due to concerns over generative artificial intelligence. (Note: Several Marketplace employees are also represented by SAG-AFTRA under a different contract.) Marketplace’s Lily Jamali spoke with Associated Press reporter Sarah Parvini, who recently wrote about the negotiations. She explained how consent is a key concern.

    Creating a “joy spiral” to revive San Francisco’s downtown

    Creating a “joy spiral” to revive San Francisco’s downtown

    Yesterday, we explained San Francisco’s fraught relationship with the tech industry. Tech workers weren’t always welcome in the eyes of many other residents, and when the COVID-19 pandemic began, a lot of them left, taking their dollars with them. But on a recent Thursday evening, organizers of a block party downtown were trying to bring people back. Marketplace’s Lily Jamali spoke to Manny Yekutiel and Katy Birnbaum about their efforts to revive the city’s downtown.

    Is San Francisco in a “doom loop” or a “boom loop”?

    Cities across the country are still trying to recover after the COVID-19 pandemic changed how and where many of us work, leaving big holes in downtown office districts. San Francisco, once teeming with tech workers, is no exception. But few cities have suffered the sustained reputational damage that San Francisco has. Marketplace’s Lily Jamali recently visited the city to meet with Heather Knight, The New York Times’ San Francisco bureau chief. Knight, who has been covering the city for more than two decades, offered her take on San Francisco’s image problem, economic situation and tech culture.

    Bytes: Week in Review — music biz vs. AI, social media moderation and Nvidia stock woes

    In the past week or so, Nvidia’s stock finally encountered the law of gravity — what goes up must eventually come down, at least a little bit. And we look under the hood of artificial intelligence companies that aren’t necessarily making headlines. Plus, the Supreme Court ruled against Republican-led states that accused the federal government of coercing social media companies into suppressing content. But first, major music labels, including Universal, Sony and Warner, are suing two startups that produce AI-generated music. The labels accuse Suno and Udio of using copyrighted works scraped from the internet to train their AI models. Marketplace’s Lily Jamali speaks with Anita Ramaswamy, columnist at The Information, for her takes on these stories in this week’s Marketplace Tech Bytes: Week in Review.

    The evolution of political messaging into the digital age

    The evolution of political messaging into the digital age

    It feels like eons ago, but during a town hall on violence in America in 1994, then-President Bill Clinton took to MTV to reach the nation’s youth. Clinton’s openness to MTV and what The New York Times called “other unconventional media” had helped pave his path to the White House two years earlier. Fast-forward to today, and even reluctant politicians use TikTok to reach younger voters — President Joe Biden is no exception. His first post came just ahead of this year’s Super Bowl. We invited Marketplace’s senior Washington correspondent, Kimberly Adams, and Joshua Scacco, professor of political communication and director of the Center for Sustainable Democracy at the University of South Florida, to discuss the evolution of political messaging with Marketplace’s Lily Jamali. Scacco said Clinton’s MTV moment informed how future presidents, including his successor, George W. Bush, have engaged with Americans.

    The Impact of AI in Higher Education: Interviews

    The Impact of AI in Higher Education: Interviews

    In this second episode of 2024, we bring you excerpts from interviews conducted at the AI in education conference at Western Sydney University in late 2023. In this week's episode, we dive deep into the world of AI in higher education and discuss its transformative potential. From personalised tutoring to improved assessment methods, we discuss how AI is revolutionising the teaching and learning experience.

    Section 1: Vitomir Kovanovic, Associate Professor of Education Futures, University of South Australia
    In this interview, Vitomir, a senior lecturer at UniSA Education Futures, shares his perspective on AI in education. Vitomir highlights the major impact that generative AI is having in the field and compares it to previous technological advancements such as blockchain and the internet. He emphasises the transformative nature of generative AI and its potential to reshape teaching methodologies, organizational structures, and job markets. Vita also discusses the importance of adapting to this new way of interacting with technology and the evolving role of teachers as AI becomes more integrated into education.

    Section 2: Tomas Trescak - Director of Academic Programs in Undergraduate ICT, Western Sydney University
    Tomas  delves into the challenges of assessment in the age of AI. He highlights the inherent lack of integrity in online assessments due to the availability of undetectable tools that can easily fill in answers. Tomas suggests that online assessments should play a complementary role in assessing students' knowledge and skills, while the main focus should be on in-person assessments that can't be easily duplicated or cheated. He also discusses the role of AI in assessing skills that won't be replaced by robots and the importance of developing graduates who can complement AI in the job market.

    Section 3: 
    Back to Vitomir,  to discuss the changing model of education and the potential impact of AI. We explore the concept of education as both a craft and a science and how technology is gradually shifting education towards a more personalised and flexible approach. The discussion highlights the ability of AI to adapt to individual teaching styles and preferences, making it a valuable tool for teachers. We also delve into the potential of AI in healthcare and tutoring, where AI can provide personalised support to students and doctors, leading to more efficient and equitable outcomes.
