Mais de metade dos estudantes usam IA para escrever os seus trabalhos (dados do Turnitin)

Artificial Intelligence

Turnitin: More than Half of Students Continue to Use AI to Write Papers

Since its launch in April 2023, Turnitin's AI writing detection tool has reviewed over 200 million papers, with data showing that more than half of students continue to use AI to write their papers.

As of late March 2024, the company said, out of the over 200 million papers reviewed, over 22 million were at least 20% AI-written, and over 6 million were at least 80% AI-written.

The company said this indicates that "educators and institutions should look at a variety of factors — or puzzle pieces — beyond detection." It suggests that teachers and institutions should have open discussions with students about what is acceptable use of AI in the classroom, as well as review academic policies and revise essay prompts.

O que é diferente nos modelos de linguagem generativos

Os modelos de linguagem generativos, como o ChatGPT, representam um grande avanço em relação às aplicações anteriores de IA na educação, pois podem transformar os resultados de uma pesquisa geral na Internet num relatório abrangente com uma linguagem tão fluente que parece ter sido escrita por um humano. No entanto, é importante compreender como o ChatGPT e outros modelos similares realizam isso.

O processo básico consiste em calcular a probabilidade da próxima palavra numa frase, com base na pergunta de entrada. Para calcular essa probabilidade, o ChatGPT pesquisa toda a Internet para identificar as combinações e sequências de palavras mais comuns sobre um determinado tópico.

Pontos fortes e fracos do ChatGPT

Com uma base de dados suficientemente grande de frases completas, ao pesquisar tudo o que possivelmente está disponível na Internet, o resultado é surpreendentemente preciso em resumir toda a escrita passada sobre um tópico. Note que o processo é puramente mecanicista – não há “compreensão” ou processamento conceptual envolvido.

Bloom’s Taxonomy Questions (Examples)

By Med Kharbach, PhD | Last Update: August 6, 2023


Bloom’s Taxonomy Questions is the topic of our blog post today!

As an educator deeply passionate about the myriad ways of learning and teaching, I’ve long held a special reverence for Bloom’s Taxonomy. This simple yet profound framework offers an elegant roadmap for guiding students through the many dimensions of knowledge, from the most basic level of simply remembering facts to the more advanced stages of analysis, evaluation, and creation.

The power of Bloom’s Taxonomy doesn’t merely lie in the clear structure it provides for curriculum development and educational planning. It is also a pivotal tool for crafting purposeful, engaging questions that challenge students to think, interpret, and create in ways that are meaningful to them.

In a world saturated with all kinds of information, the ability to pose powerful questions is an invaluable asset. Bloom’s Taxonomy questions help educators tap into different levels of cognitive learning, stimulating curiosity and encouraging deeper exploration of topics. Each level in the taxonomy presents its own unique set of challenges and opportunities for intellectual growth. They foster a culture of inquiry, where students are not just passive receivers of knowledge but active constructors of their own understanding.

In today’s blog post, we will share with you examples of Bloom’s Taxonomy questions. This post is a part of a series exploring Bloom’s Taxonomy, and I invite you to also check out my other posts on Bloom’s Taxonomy books and Bloom’s Taxonomy verbs. These resources provide a comprehensive understanding of this foundational concept in education, enlightening you on the various ways to optimize your teaching strategies and engage your students in meaningful learning.
