In this episode, I speak with Stefan Bauschard. Stefan is the Co-founder of; the Owner of, the Executive Co-Director of the New York City Urban Debate League and the Debate Coach @ Lakeland Schools. He is also the author of several substance articles that have received a tremendous amount of attention in the way they challenge us to re-think assessment, re-think our ways or learning, and re-think our relationships with evidencing what we can do… all due to AI. We discuss:

🥥 How AI will be able to teach learners certain things better than any human ever could;

🥥 How AI will end the primacy of single artifact assessments, in favor of more creative, individualized ways to demonstrate understanding;

🥥 The notion that educators in the future will be those who care about and enjoy spending time with kids.
