Todo el mundo habla de ChatGPT y las IAs generativas, pero muchos a煤n no conocen c贸mo hacerlas funcionar correctamente.

En este hilo introducimos dos conceptos clave para hacerlo: el Prompt y el Prompt Engineering. 馃У馃憞馃徎
Las herramientas de IA generativas necesitan una instrucci贸n dada por el usuario para crear contenido. Por esta raz贸n, aprender a dirigir estas herramientas hacia los resultados deseados puede ser una habilidad de gran valor.
En el mundo de la IA, el t茅rmino "prompt" se refiere a una descripci贸n o instrucci贸n que se proporciona a un programa para guiarlo a producir un resultado deseado. Es la entrada de datos que le damos a una herramienta de IA para que genere una respuesta o un resultado concreto.

A few months ago, I was googling STEM programs in prisons, and came across an ad, posted on eBay of all places. 鈥淐ould there be a future in computer programming for prisoners?鈥 #higheredinprison #edtech #stem @STEM_OPS @Prof_Andrisse
But it wasn鈥檛 from The Last Mile or Slack's Next Chapter, which are both nonprofits working in this space now. It was an IBM ad from 1970 in Scientific American. @TLM @IBM @sciam @SlackHQ bit.ly/3KbocNQ
I had no idea that computer programming was offered in prisons 50 years ago. As I dug a little bit into the archives of @JSTOR鈥檚 American Prison Newspaper Archives, I discovered this was happening all across the country. Via La Roca, AZ State Prison, 1974. bit.ly/3Yy5CDT

As part of my digital role I have been banking all the interesting Twitter threads on #ChatGPT in #education and #teaching. I thought it would be useful to signpost educators to what it can do. 馃У馃У馃У

1) What is it
2) Discussions
3) Examples
First off hats off to @torreytrust for putting together this amazing summary of #chatGPT for schools.

@dave2004b also shares his initial finding and thoughts in this short blog post.

Still think ChatGPT is bad for education?

I just gave it a mark scheme and a sample student answer from an AQA GCSE English Language paper.

Look what happened 馃憞

*Spoiler: It marked it accurately in seconds*

As a response (thanks to Melissa McBride from Sophia.app) I asked it how it could be improved and to provide an exemplar answer. Image

I鈥檝e received a few requests to block #chatgpt on our school network. This feels like a pivotal moment in #edtech and 1:1 classrooms.

I believed going 1:1 & having access to an abundance of information was, in the hands of every student would fundamentally transform edu.

馃У
Change definitely occurred, but not in the way I had hoped & envisioned. In many ways 1:1 edtech became about productivity and testing machines. This is a reasonable progression, but missing huge opportunity.
My perspective has always been, what can we allow students to do with these devices that they could not do otherwise. While productivity, organization, assessment and access to class content improves efficiency, it doesn鈥檛 create new opportunities for students.

Attended a webinar with @educationgovuk hosted by @TheANME yesterday about the Digital & Tech & Cyber Security standards: bit.ly/dfedigitech

The webinar raised far more questions than answers & seriously lacked an understanding of what is happening front line. A thread...
Whilst the standards are a good guidance for schools to start from, the reality is that a lot of the recommendations are a blue sky dream for schools. Investment in IT (both personnel & kit) has been so poor, the reality almost requires us to go back to the drawing board.
The biggest question that schools & IT staff are asking is where is the funding coming from to help schools meet these standards? An example given was for schools to have WiFi 6 across the organisation. Most users don't even have WiFi 6 in the home, let alone in school!

Over the past decade, $20B has been invested into US edtech, yet only 3 companies have gone public: @coursera, @duolingo, @udemy. Many have written off the space.

馃敟take: we are entering the decade of the 鈥淟earning Economy,鈥 which spans way beyond traditional education. More馃斀
1/ First, #edtech is much broader than we think. It's not just about academic tools and student/teacher tech. The Learning Economy, as we think of it, encompasses all the diff ways we develop as human beings, be it learning to be a better boss, parent, or friend, or a new hobby.
2/ People have hypothesized all sorts of reasons why venture outcomes are difficult: limited TAM, lack of consumer willingness to pay, difficult b2b sales, growth trajectories different from traditional consumer internet companies鈥

But these dynamics have changed since Covid.

How can I use #EdTech SaaS ideas to start a Startup? Image
Launch an EdTech SaaS platform that connects tutors with students. This can be done through various platforms, so there is plenty of room for innovation and differentiation.
Create a software as a service for educational institutions. To build your business model, look at how other edtech companies are successfully making money and how they are collaborating with schools and teachers.

A few weeks ago, @protocollabs @gitcoin @fiftyyears organized the 鈥淔unding the Commons鈥 Conference to discuss how do we fund open-source and commons-based goods.

1/ For our #Edtech project with @chimple_org and UBS Bank, we鈥檝e implemented this crypto-economic primitive called AlphaBonds.

Our aim was to achieve alpha, reduce negative externalities (dependency), and increase positive externalities (strengthening education services). Image
2/ This was accomplished by decentralizing financing and allowing local stakeholders to participate.

This meant replacing TradFi Development Impact Bonds, which are very centralized, have lots of intermediaries, and costs are high. 馃彟

Or perhaps something that converts the CSS of @Hypothes_is highlights and makes the letters red instead of having a yellow background? #EdTech
A bit reminiscent, but of a different historical period than the index card idea.
What if we had a collection of illuminated initials and some code that would allow for replacing capitals at the start of paragraphs we were reading?

These two tweets came through my feed in rapid succession.

The first is from a well-followed teacher influencer.

We probably don鈥檛 talk enough about the face that #edtech has served primarily as a distraction in schools, not an accelerant of good instruction.
This is one of my favorite reads on the topic, but it鈥檚 now behind a pay wall.

@natwexler, is it available on your substack?

technologyreview.com/2019/12/19/131鈥
In the meantime, you can read this, from @edukings. It鈥檚 mostly about literacy, but it鈥檚 a reminder that Ed tech gobbles up district budgets. Generally with low payback.
