Latest developments in artificial intelligence (AI) software that can write sophisticated essay responses has generated a great deal of interest and discussion.
The IB believes that this AI technology will become part of our everyday lives—like spell checkers, translation software and calculators. We therefore need to adapt and transform our educational programmes and assessment practices so that students can use these new AI tools ethically and effectively. The IB is not going to ban the use of such software but will work with schools to help them support their students on how to use these tools ethically in line with our principles of academic integrity.
Matt Glanville, Head of Assessment Principles and Practice at the IB, shares his views on the short-term impact this new technology will have on IB assessments and how it could change education as we know it in the long-term.
