Vicki Davis (00:00)

I am so excited right this moment. We’re with certainly one of my quote, oldest mates on the web. We did the flat classroom venture again in 2006, gained the ISTE on-line studying award in 2006 for finest international collaborative venture. And it was quite a lot of enjoyable AJ, it was a very long time in the past for each of us. However, and I am saying this as a result of I depend on AJ,

AJ Juliani (00:05)



Vicki Davis (00:23)

He is a thought chief, He has superb keynotes. He is written bestsellers, empathy, launch, adaptable. And now he has a brand new e-book, Significant and Related, Partaking Learners within the Age of Distraction. He additionally has a podcast known as The Backwards. And that is backwards engineering

issues which is nice. AJ, we’ll discuss right this moment about how can we be significant and related and have interaction learners within the age of distraction. And you already know what? Children have modified. How have they modified?

AJ Juliani (00:53)

Vicki, thanks once more for having me on the podcast. It is all the time nice to meet up with you. And also you’re somebody I have been wanting as much as since I used to be classroom trainer, searching for one thing to do with my youngsters that have been going to get them past the classroom partitions and flat classroom venture, which was superb, however many issues over time, we have been chatting and also you talked about a time period that I have been speaking about loads as nicely, which is that we’re on this second of a hinge of historical past.

Vicki Davis (00:57)


AJ Juliani (01:16)

Proper? This, this second of a hinge of historical past the place there is a, a technological development that occurs that impacts everyone and form of modifications the world a bit bit. And you’ll take into consideration printing press and the knowledge revolution, proper? You might take into consideration the telegraph and abruptly making the world smaller as a result of folks have transatlantic communication, radio and tv, mass broadcasts, clearly the digital revolution with computer systems. And the final one we have been simply in was the web.

Vicki Davis (01:23)


AJ Juliani (01:43)

You realize, clearly lots of people are speaking about AI as being this hinge of historical past proper now, however the web actually modified youngsters and us for good. And I need you to consider this. Do you keep in mind that present Cribs, Vicki, again within the day? Keep in mind that present?

Vicki Davis (01:53)


AJ Juliani (01:59)

It was the very best, proper? It was simply mainly displaying you well-known folks’s homes. You bought to see their homes, you bought to see their automobiles, it was their crib, and you bought to see inside their fridge and all the pieces like that. After I was rising up, that was my solely perception into the world of the wealthy and well-known. I lived in a small city, I had two mates that have been quote unquote wealthy, one was a lawyer, the physician, proper, that was the kind of factor. At the moment’s youngsters stay in such a special world.

Vicki Davis (02:03)

Oh yeah, okay.

AJ Juliani (02:27)

Vicki, proper? I’ve 5 youngsters of my very own. I’ve a young person, I’ve a center schooler. They, on these gadgets, I am holding up a cellphone in my hand proper right here, observe hundreds of people that make a whole bunch of hundreds of {dollars}, hundreds of thousands of {dollars} from doing dances, placing on make-up, enjoying video video games. And so after we speak about our youngsters in right this moment’s world, and we attempt to say, observe this conventional path, college is essential, seven hours a day, concentrate, two hours of homework.

It’s totally tough for this era to grasp that in the identical means we did, as a result of they’ve an entire completely different world at their fingertips that they are experiencing.

Vicki Davis (03:02)


So how can we interact them in schooling? Is it hopeless? We all know it is not.

AJ Juliani (03:10)

No, I do not assume it is hopeless in any respect, however I believe there’s 4 huge issues that I all the time speak about. We want our studying experiences to be human, to be social, to be meaning-centered, and to be language-based. Now, in fact, these 4 issues have modified over time, however in case you had Aristotle and Socrates, these 4 issues create a studying and engaged expertise of their time. For us, the issues that do not actually work anymore

conventional, compliance-based, boring, and standardized. AI crushes these, but in addition youngsters do not concentrate when that’s the atmosphere. And so we have to concentrate on these huge 4 issues.

Vicki Davis (03:51)

So can we undergo every of those 4 issues and simply allow you to give examples? So studying experiences have to be human, go there.

AJ Juliani (03:59)

Human. In order that they have to be human in the identical means that we have to work together with folks. Proper. So human mainly means it does not all the time need to be head to head. However you’ve got most likely had like a significant dialog on this gadget over the previous 24 48 hours. Proper.

Vicki Davis (04:16)

proper earlier than we talked.

AJ Juliani (04:17)

with essentially a pc or one thing alongside these traces. Now they are often aided by a digital gadget, however nonetheless have to be. Sure, proper, precisely, proper? In order that’s human, we have been utilizing Wikis, these days you need to use one thing else, however that concept of interacting. Social takes that to the following stage. Social mainly says, you already know, in the actual world outdoors of faculty, you are not essentially doing quite a lot of entire assessments by your self. You are in a position to work together together with your friends, be capable to ask questions.

Vicki Davis (04:23)

such as you and me with a flat classroom. Yeah.


AJ Juliani (04:47)

I all the time take into consideration like that present, who needs to be a millionaire? You possibly can cellphone a good friend, proper? So we might try this on a regular basis in the actual world. That is that social facet of issues. We’ll go all the way down to which means centered. Now abruptly it will get fairly critical. Is the experiences our youngsters are having at school significant and related? Or are they only a product of a really standardized curriculum?

Vicki Davis (05:01)


AJ Juliani (05:11)

I will provide you with an instance, Vicki. After I was younger, I went by means of my dinosaur section. And I consider everyone had a dinosaur section, proper? However after I went by means of my dinosaur section, I went to my third grade trainer, Ms. Herring, and I mentioned, hey, Ms. Herring, it is September When are we gonna find out about dinosaurs? And she or he mentioned, February. And the one factor I might do between September and February is go to the library and pull out a e-book. Properly, my son simply went by means of his dinosaur section. And he did not have any of that drawback. He was watching a stay present on YouTube.

Vicki Davis (05:17)


AJ Juliani (05:38)

from the easiest paleontologist on the earth who has added dig web site, placing on a present for youths. That is the distinction of which means. Now we have to faucet into all these experiences which can be on the market for our youngsters and convey them to our youngsters or not less than assist them go and get them. And that is what which means appears to be like like. And the final one, which is language-based, simply means in any means, form or kind, there must be that communication that is occurring for studying to occur.

And it might be communication with texting, emails, on-line, you already know, DMing, all these several types of issues. What can we head to head? You realize, language-based communication, however language and studying to make use of language successfully is just about one of the crucial essential expertise that we’ve on the market. So these 4 are the large ones proper now.

Vicki Davis (06:29)

As a result of textual content opens the door for all the pieces from creating different textual content to creating artwork to creating music. And we’re not speaking about all of the ethics proper now, however creating absolutely anything now comes all the way down to our means to make use of descriptive, efficient, imaginative, artistic language. Like language has all the time been essential.

however that is the place the spark of creativity as a result of AI by itself is fairly bland and never artistic. AI with a human and man, it makes use of the phrase Delve on a regular basis. Like what’s up? Like ChatGPT has its favourite phrases and it drives me loopy as a result of if I see anyone use the phrase Delve, I will know they use ChatGPT to jot down it. Is not that horrible?

AJ Juliani (07:15)

You realize, GPT is all the time delving, proper? At all times.

Vicki Davis (07:17)

It is all the time “delving”. It is like, what’s up with this? What’s it, what delve What, who says that? Chat GPT says its favourite phrase. So you’ve got seen it too.

AJ Juliani (07:25)

No, I, sure, I imply, I believe you are proper. So, you already know, in a world of AI, we nonetheless need youngsters to assume. We would like them to create. And the one means as an educator or a mum or dad or a mentor that I can see youngsters pondering is thru their use of language. And so language is so essential for us to concentrate on proper now in all its number of

Vicki Davis (07:46)

So let’s speak about what it may possibly’t be as a result of typically we’ve to have a wake-up name. How lengthy have we been saying that, quote, lecture does not work? Now I wanna make a caveat as a result of like, there are a couple of occasions a yr I may give a speech on the historical past of expertise that’s uniquely me as a result of I’ve lived it. I’ve been utilizing a pc since I used to be seven.

I can discuss concerning the day this occurred, the day that occurred, the primary time I used like, it’s completely different as a result of I’m telling tales and it is a human connection and it is a dialog, okay? So we will not say trainer on the entrance of the room by no means occurs as a result of that is a part of being human and fascinating and all that, proper? However each day lecturing bell to bell, like what’s it gonna take to assist us perceive that does not essentially interact learners?

AJ Juliani (08:38)

Yeah, I might begin off and simply say, I believe we already know that. every time I ask folks what your finest studying experiences are, it is usually one thing that they are doing hands-on, experiential, project-based, inquiry-based. What are the issues that you just keep in mind out of your college and expertise? It is a reference to the trainer. How do you construct these connections? A whole lot of occasions by means of these initiatives and issues like that. Proper, so I believe we inherently comprehend it. And I truly…

Vicki Davis (08:46)



AJ Juliani (09:01)

Empathize with lecturers and directors in every single place as a result of the system has put quite a lot of guardrails on people the place they need to cowl Curriculum they’ve to show the check these several types of issues And so quite a lot of occasions the system is ready up the place it makes it actually exhausting to do a number of the issues that we simply know Inherently work take a look at the analysis it really works as nicely However certainly one of my favourite that I like working with lecturers on a regular basis is I like having them say, okay

Vicki Davis (09:19)


AJ Juliani (09:28)

you may have a unit arising, and you already know that the scholars assume it a bit bit that is the place I believe the ability of AI actually helps, as a result of beforehand I must sit down and spend hours with my colleagues attempting to provide you with some significant and related methods to have interaction our learners.

Vicki Davis (09:46)


AJ Juliani (09:46)

Now, after I work with lecturers, I take advantage of a software like ChatGPT or Magic College, and I give what grade stage I am educating, proper? Set the context. I give what my unit’s about, set form of what that have is. After which I can inform Magic College within the make it related portion there, I can inform ChatGPT, hey, listed below are what my college students have an interest. You realize, perhaps they’re thinking about…

Vicki Davis (10:12)


AJ Juliani (10:14)

social media and video video games and sports activities or no matter, make-up, no matter I need to be, give me some concepts to make this unit related. And abruptly I bought three, 4, 5 concepts that I can then take my human intelligence to take it a step additional and one thing that is actionable. So now I’ve gone and saved that 10 hours of time by way of arising with the concepts. I’ve bought the concepts and now I can use my time to really put it into motion. And…

I’ve simply seen lecturers’ eyes gentle up once they get these concepts as a result of they need to do what’s finest for youths. They wanna get that spotlight by means of significant and related methods, and now it is extra accessible than ever.

Vicki Davis (10:52)

Yeah. Pay attention, I’ve discovered extra about soccer, which is huge at my college, utilizing chat GPT, most of my youngsters in my AP pc science rules class play soccer. And so have been scuffling with the distinction between parameters and arguments. And I used to be in a position to go in and say, I want some examples of parameters and arguments utilizing soccer examples.

and I want issues that they’ll resolve. And hear, the sunshine bulb went on. I used to be trustworthy with them. I am attempting to show you parameters and arguments. I am attempting to make it related. After which we truly went in and I had them create different examples utilizing ChatGPT. And I mentioned, okay, how can we use this software to show us?

decide one thing you want. And so one particular person did, the very best instance is definitely soccer, And like the entire class is like, we get it. And that was a fantastic second, nevertheless it was not solely I modeled it, I taught them. So I actually like to speak loads about efficient use of AI. It is acceptable to make use of it right here, not there.

And that is simply a part of being a trainer, like guiding them by means of. So there are quite a lot of colleges which can be afraid of AI and do not need to speak about it. Or they’re going to say, you may’t point out it or you may’t speak about it. I believe the final time I noticed this concern in my lifetime was when the web got here out, you already know, do not speak about it. We’re not going to confess that it is there. What do you do to assist folks by means of the concern issue?

into, okay, how can we stay with this and train with this and discover its acceptable place?

AJ Juliani (12:19)

Yeah, you already know, I am afraid as nicely. I like to inform folks I am not professional AI or anti AI. I am simply form of extra of a realist that it is right here. You realize, I’ve 5 youngsters at school. I work with lecturers and college students on a regular basis. And so there’s very actual moral, ethical bias considerations on the market. What I like to inform folks is 2 focuses, proper? It is form of twofold. Primary, there’s some instruments on the market.

Vicki Davis (12:22)




AJ Juliani (12:48)

which have already been created for educators with some safeguards in place which can be serving to educators do nice work. I take advantage of Magic College for example. It helps on the similar time. You possibly can develop actual world connections, related issues, alternative boards. You possibly can summarize textual content, stage textual content, proper? Translate textual content, all these items that we do on a regular basis. Helps with IEPs, with lodging, modifications. So why not begin there together with your workers in saying, let’s use this collectively.

Vicki Davis (12:57)


AJ Juliani (13:18)

with a software that is created for educators with some safeguards in place and see how you need to use it, proper? The second means is after we speak about pupil use, we’ve to be very clear that we’re utilizing instruments that really have youngster privateness and knowledge legal guidelines on the coronary heart, proper? So the 2 that I like loads are Curipod, which is form of like a Nearpod, Pear Deck, Kahoot sort factor.

Vicki Davis (13:44)


AJ Juliani (13:45)

the place youngsters do not need to log in with Google. They do not need to do something. They only put of their title. And so there’s none of that privateness or knowledge that you just’re shedding there. And the identical one is College AI, which does the identical factor. So I like these two instruments. However Vicki, the large factor that I speak about after I work with colleges loads is that we’ve to speak about it and deal with it. We will not stay in some fairy land the place we act like this does not exist on each gadget that our youngsters and of us have.

Vicki Davis (13:48)


AJ Juliani (14:15)

Proper? And so we will not simply carry on enjoying the gotcha video games, attempting to catch it. So we truly need to create some parameters or protocols on how we use it. Now a college district outdoors of Philadelphia close to me named Garnet Valley college district. Created this glorious visitors gentle protocol that I share on a regular basis. And mainly purple could be a lesson or exercise the place we’re not allowed to make use of AI. We need to see your pondering, you individually, there’s loads of alternatives the place we do not really need.

Vicki Davis (14:33)


AJ Juliani (14:44)

AI or assisted applied sciences to come back assist the children. And so that might be a purple form of lesson or exercise. Then there’s yellow. That is the place the scholars need to ask for permission. Say a child is scuffling with math they usually say, hey, Mr. J, am I ready to make use of photograph math to only form of assist me see a number of the work issues and options tonight as I am preparing for that quiz, simply to assist me out? In fact, as a result of they requested my permission, I am giving them again to them, proper? There is a child that is.

Vicki Davis (15:02)


AJ Juliani (15:12)

struggling on a writing task, they wanna provide you with some concepts. Hey, can I take advantage of this software? In fact, proper? They’re getting some permission, that might be yellow. After which there’s inexperienced. And inexperienced is the place lecturers have been encouraging use. An instance I like to present for this one is, MLA quotation and Works Cited. I used to spend hours and models on that. I might now, use these two instruments, get your work cited, proper? Your MLA quotation, preserve the tutorial integrity, however do not take on a regular basis that it used to take.

Vicki Davis (15:19)




AJ Juliani (15:40)

So now when we’ve that purple, yellow, and inexperienced, we’re in a position to truly focus on and speak about use with our workers members, with our colleagues, and naturally with the children.

Vicki Davis (15:48)

Yeah. So what are your favourite instruments for MLA and APA?

AJ Juliani (15:52)

I imply, I nonetheless like, you already know, the Purdue Owl trusted one on the market, however my favourite AI one is definitely Jenni.ai, which is J-E-N-N-I.ai. Particularly for highschool college students and older, it simply does a improbable job.

Vicki Davis (16:09)

You taught me a brand new one. I am so excited. Properly, AJ Giuliani, the brand new e-book is Significant and Related, Partaking Learners in an Age of Distraction. He is actual deal.

AJ Juliani (16:11)


Vicki Davis (16:20)

And I extremely suggest AJ only for all the pieces. And I hope that every one of you’ll exit and pre-order his e-book. Thanks for approaching the present.

AJ Juliani (16:28)

Vicki, thanks a lot for having me proper again at you. Realized a lot from you. And to everyone on the market listening, carry on doing the nice work.
