The ChatGPT effect. artistic projects as the key to students’ adaptation

I saw yesterday that the school is going to intentionally install ChatGPT on student devices for grades 6 and up. Now almost every product on the planet is trying to integrate ChatGPT or a competitor. Artificial intelligence (AI) cannot be avoided. That would be disruptive. As the saying goes, adapt or die. Just as schools had to adapt overnight during the pandemic to a new style of teaching and learning, so will ChatGPT.

How will our classes change when we adopt ChatGPT?

More art!!!

Art connects students to their learning

This week is spring break for my kids. We came to Colonial Williamsburg, which provides historical tours of life in the 1700s. My kids moaned a bit that walking in the pouring rain in a colonial city wasn’t very exciting. On a tour of the capitol building, my son painted the royal crest on the wall. She had done an art project at school learning about family symbols and made one. S:suddenly he was so interested in the tour. He asked a bunch of questions about the peak, wanting the guide to break down every part of it. This extended to him being genuinely interested in learning more about everything on the tour.

Art is personal. Art is humanizing. Art connects us

Adapting to ChatGPT with Art

More art projects!! Students tend to be creative. They want to express themselves. Be proud of what they create.

As a parent, two things come out of my boys’ backpacks. School art and worksheets. Only one of the two makes it to the fridge. Proudly displayed and celebrated. The latter goes straight to the fire. We don’t save them.

Can’t ChatGPT do that for me?

Before ChatGPT, students had Google Search. Ask them, they know they can just Google it and their interest wanes. It’s harder to care about learning something when it seems invalid. “Why do I have to learn this? I can just Google it.” Lack of consistency makes it difficult to learn to stay long-term.

This problem has now been exacerbated by ChatGPT. It does much more than just search websites for information. It actually synthesizes information from various sources and extracts a usable result. “Why do I have to write this? ChatGPT will do it better.” They are not wrong.

Continuing to truck along with the same tasks that do not adapt to the new culture of artificial intelligence will not work. Schools will have no choice but to adapt. Adapt ChatGPT with art.

All subjects can be taught through art

At least to some extent, art can be included in all subjects.

🤖Write a list of 10 classroom tasks that could include art

  1. Make visual notes. Encourage students to take visual notes during lectures or while reading. They can use different colors, fonts and shapes to represent concepts and ideas.
  2. Storyboarding. Students can create storyboards to plan their own short films, animations or presentations. This task combines visual storytelling with critical thinking and planning skills.
  3. Making a collage. have students create collages that visually represent ideas or themes from literature, history, or science. They can use cut-out images, text and other materials to create a visual representation of their ideas.
  4. Infographics. have students create infographics that visually represent information, data, or concepts. This task requires research, critical thinking and design skills.
  5. Comics. Students can create comics that tell a scene from a novel or historical event. They can use dialogue, speech bubbles and visual cues to communicate their ideas.
  6. Kinetic sculptures. have students create kinetic sculptures that represent a scientific concept or abstract idea. They can use motors, gears, and other materials to bring their creations to life.
  7. Graffiti Art. Encourage students to create graffiti-style art that represents their identity or social issue. This assignment can be a way to identify social justice issues and encourage self-expression.
  8. Portrait: Have students create portraits of historical figures or literary characters. This assignment can help students practice observational skills and develop an understanding of character.
  9. Preparation of maps. Students can create maps that represent historical events or fictional worlds. This task requires research, critical thinking and design skills.

Ask ChatGPT for art integration

Here is the good news. You are not alone. Do you have a sidekick? It’s ChatGPT. I asked ChatGPT

Write a lesson plan using the 5 E’s lesson plan model where students look at Art on Google Arts and Culture and then create their own art to learn linear equations.

Chat with ChatGPT

ChatGPT is a chatbot. Start a new conversation. Ask her to create an example lesson plan where students create art. Then, as if you were talking to a teacher friend, ask them to modify the output.
