GPT-3 and Me: Conversational AI’s Impact on Inclusion and Accessibility (Part V)

When using conversational AI in our teaching and learning, one of the first challenges is ensuring that we use the technology to connect and communicate with students in innovative ways. As educators, we need to feel comfortable curating our curriculum via new tools and channels to meet our students where they are. We also need to leverage digital capabilities in service of emerging digital pedagogies in ways that foster collaboration and creativity. However, one potential pitfall of the use of any advanced technology, such as conversational AI, is that we will widen the digital divide between students of relative digital privilege and those who may be marginalised by a lack of access or accessibility when it comes to these innovative methods of teaching and learning.
