Teachers Association on Emerging Technologies: AI Will Never Replace Schools

The German Teachers' Association is openly in favor of using modern AI text generators such as ChatGPT in schools. This step is an important part of schools' job of preparing students for reality.

Teachers Association on Emerging Technologies AI Will Never Replace Schools

Integrating modern technology into the classroom

According to the teachers' association, ignoring artificial intelligence programs in schools or even banning them would not work. Instead, the teaching staff should be encouraged to meaningfully integrate modern technologies into their lessons.

In addition, when using the AI programs, teachers should make their students aware that they cannot accept the texts and other results presented by the programs without additional verification.

Artificial intelligence is not a substitute

Even with other technologies that were once innovative, such as the Internet, users feared that they would no longer be able to distinguish between work done by machines and the work of students.

However, these fears were never confirmed, as artificial intelligence cannot replace the work of schools and teachers.

Bans in US schools

The New York City Department of Education criticized the technology for negatively affecting the learning process of students.

In this way, children and young people would be prevented from developing their own problem-solving skills.

No reason for strict regulation?

Nevertheless, Digital Minister Volker Wissing spoke out in favor of overly strict regulation of AI systems, which would automatically lead to bans. After all, Wissing is aware that artificial intelligence will quickly and increasingly establish itself in people's everyday lives.

His biggest concern with AI regulation is that a Europe-wide majority is developing that assumes that the spread of AI systems can be restricted by bans. According to Wissing's attitude, despite the efforts, the population would find out over time that users still use the AI systems intensively.
