pdf Introduction to Educational Implications of Artificial Intelligence

2188 downloads

This PDF format eBook is designed to help preservice and inservice teachers learn about some of the educational implications of current uses of Artificial Intelligence as an aid to solving problems and accomplishing tasks.

Humans and their predecessors have developed a wide range of tools to help solve the types of problems that they face. Such tools embody some of the knowledge and skills of those who discover, invent, design, and build the tools. Because of this, in some sense a tool user gains in knowledge and skill by learning to make use of tools. Tools empower and enable their users. AI provides mind tools, and AI helps to automate tools that aid one’s physical body.
