Do you have questions and concerns about artificial intelligence tools like ChatGPT and their potential impact on schools? Have you heard of ChatGPT, but haven’t tried it because you’re not sure if it’s a fad or something you should learn about? If you answered “yes” to either of those questions, Rushton Hurley‘s new course ChatGPT: Boom or Our Doom? is for you. 

ChatGPT: Boom or Our Doom? is a free, self-paced course in which Rushton leads you through five lessons about ChatGPT and its implications for classrooms. Each lesson features a five minute video and a suggested practice or reflection activity. The lessons cover what ChatGPT is and how it works, how to handle concerns about cheating, and using ChatGPT to create materials and activities for your classes. 

The course is hosted by an organization called Warm Demanders. The sign-up process does require you to enter your email address then check your email to access the actual course materials. 

If you’re looking for a good, concise overview of ChatGPT and it’s implications for your classroom, taking Rushton’s free course is a great place to start. 

On a related note, I’ve made a couple of videos about ChatGPT and AI. Those videos are included below.
