AI-writer is a tool which can be used by students to sidestep the learning process the teacher has intended. To avoid ‘ghost writing’ or plagiarism, or at least design a teaching and learning situation that makes it much harder for students to plagiarise, I suggest teachers can use AI-writer (and similar tools) after the motto ‘if you can’t beat them – join them’.
Generally speaking, shaping methods for tracking, observing and documenting students’ work and learning processes will help in making it harder for students to plagiarise and take ‘short-cuts’. The main focus is to make learning happen, but also to avoid cheating.
The example below outlines such as process and incorporates the use of AI-writer in the teaching and learning process.
Writing exercise using AI writer
Step 1: Go to ai-writer.com then type in 3-4 keywords and generate a text.
Step 2: Evaluate the sources found. This should be discussed in groups. Remove what is problematic and motivate why.
Step 3: Rework the AI- generated text using sources from course literature.
Step 4: Write a reflection or discussion on the process.
