MagicSchool ai - AI In the Classroom - Volume I

Updated: Feb 20

It's no secret endurance is important to me. As an educator and consultant, it's my core mission. Essentially, endurance plays a pivotal role in various aspects of life, contributing significantly to personal growth, success, and overall well-being. A couple that come to mind in terms of the reasoning of this post series about enduring within the artificial intelligence frontier (in terms of education) include . . .

Achieving Goals: Many worthwhile goals require perseverance and resilience. Endurance helps individuals stay committed and overcome obstacles along the way. Whether it's in academics, career pursuits, or personal development, the ability to endure challenges is essential for progress.

Career Success: In the professional world, endurance is often key to success. It allows individuals to withstand the pressures, setbacks, and demands of their careers. Those who can persevere through challenges tend to excel and achieve their long-term career aspirations.

Personal Growth: Endurance contributes significantly to personal growth and self-improvement. It enables individuals to push beyond their comfort zones, embrace discomfort, and take on new challenges. This continual growth is essential for self-development.

Leadership and Decision-making: Endurance is a quality often admired in leaders. Leaders who exhibit endurance inspire confidence, navigate uncertainties, and make steadfast decisions even in challenging situations.

In essence, endurance is not merely about enduring hardships; it's about the ability to persist, grow, and thrive despite challenges, ultimately leading to personal development and success in various facets of life . . . in this case, the educational frontier.

There's no shortage of artificial intelligence applications currently, and the pool to choose from is growing by the minute. For the purpose of this post, we will focus on

If you've followed me in any capacity, it's also no secret that I love correlating my love of video games within the educational constructs of my classroom. So, let's blend the two, shall we?

Video Game: Celeste

*At the base level, Celeste is a platform game in which players control a young woman named Madeline as she makes her way up Mount Celeste while avoiding various deadly obstacles. Along with jumping and climbing up walls for a limited amount of time, Madeline has the ability to perform a mid-air dash in eight directions. On a deeper level, Celeste is about mental illness.

AI Application:

*Sub Application: YouTube Video Summarizer

Step 1 - Decide On Educational Goal

*For this task, I'm focusing on the comprehension of literary elements presented in digital format.

Step 2 - Generate Content

Step 3 - Create Your Educational Experience

*THIS PORTION IS KEY! Work with artificial intelligence to make something special together. Make it persoal. Give it life. Make it memorable. Use it as a teammate, NOT AS A CRUTCH!

Step 4 - Implement the Educational Experience

*This is just one simple example. Remember, begin with baby steps to get comfortable working with any new application. However, you can see how we've blended the two worlds. I've taken the brainstorming elements of and married them with my paintbrush (if you will) to instruct upon the elements needed within my classroom.

Step 5 - Reflect

*Reflection is perhaps the most important step in this entire process. Reflection is crucial for personal growth, learning, and development. It involves taking time to contemplate, analyze, and evaluate experiences, thoughts, actions, or situations. Reflect on this experience, to extract meaningful lessons and insights. By examining what worked well and what didn’t, you can gain a deeper understanding of future creations, enabling you to make more informed decisions in the future.
