Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Creation Story
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

My unit will align with Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein for Advanced Placement Literature students, although it could be adapted to other texts that pose the same question: Will we be cautious in creating technology, or will our creations ultimately harm us? Many dystopian futures feature violent revolts on humans from mistreated robots. These stories resonate because they mirror past brutality against African slaves, proposals to purify humanity in the Eugenics Movement, and recent mistreatment of immigrants. When we create more beautiful, more intelligent, and more talented humanoid entities to think for us, to entice us, and to comfort us, how will we view ourselves? Our virtual assistants have female voices. Does this amplify biased views of gender? If we treat our virtual assistants as slaves, will this increase our hatred towards other humans? Will our lives become completely irrelevant? In this unit, students will research the current state of robotics, and draw comparisons between our modern creations and the moral and technological warning in Frankenstein, encouraging students to think about the technology they use, feel agency in determining its future, and strive towards creating tools for a more humane world.

Ateliers sur demande – Instant Workshops

Rating
0.0 stars

There are already many online lessons for building digital skills in higher education, so why is Ateliers sur demande | Instant Workshops creating more? First, it is not always easy to find lessons in both English and French, which is particularly helpful in Canada, for example, where Ateliers sur demande | Instant Workshops started. Second, when English and French lessons do exist, sometimes there are issues with accessibility, such as videos without captions. Or there are issues with access, such as subscription fees or institutional logins. Or there are issues with resources that are too long or inflexible or impersonal.

The collaborators on Ateliers sur demande | Instant Workshops aim to provide digital skills lessons for higher education in French and English that are free, open, focused, accessible, flexible, and humanized. The site and initial suite of lessons were made possible with funding by the Government of Ontario and through eCampusOntario’s support of the Virtual Learning Strategy, and new lessons are added regularly.
