Cache and Carry - My Week In International Education - Episode 1
I'll be discussing the ed-tech I'm testing, teaching practices I'm trying, YouTube videos I'm watching, quotes I'm pondering, things I've learned, and the "string" I'm pulling. This week, I tried poe.com, an AI chatbot that allows conversation with four different chatbots. For teaching, I experimented with TAG feedback, which stands for Tell me something you like, Ask me a question, and Give me a positive suggestion to improve my work. I've been watching Andrew Huberman's YouTube video on the 5 pillars of health and performance, and pondering the quotes "not wasting time on nonsense" and "living a simple life." Through my experiences, I've learned that change is necessary. Finally, I'm pulling the "string" of AI and considering its long-term impacts.
