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 Vondy.com. In simple terms, Vondy.com is a creative artificial intelligence assistant. There's no shortage of possibilites here, so I'm going to keep it really simple.


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: Spiritfarer


*Spiritfarer is an indie adventure game developed by Thunder Lotus Games where the player must meet the needs of the spirits aboard their ship with foods and building boat additions to accommodate those spirits' desires and needs. This leads to the player collecting materials while on their journey to build kitchens, gardens, and other home amenities to help the spirits feel more at home while uncovering more of each spirits backstory as they sail their way to crossing over to afterlife through the Everdoor.



AI Application: Vondy.com

*Sub Application: Image Applications


Step 1 - Decide On Educational Goal

*For this task, I'm focusing on thematic elements of a work of literature/art.



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 personal. 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 artistic element of Vondy.com and married it 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.
