Limit AI Use

While AI tools can be beneficial in educational settings, there may be situations where you want to limit or thwart their usage to maintain a balanced and effective learning environment. Below are a list of strategies to help prevent the use of AI in the classroom.

Oral Exams
Conduct short oral quizzes where students answer questions verbally instead of in a written format. This can be done individually or in small groups.

Hands-on Experiments
Hands-on experiments and activities not only minimize the need for AI tools but also offer students a more interactive and immersive learning experience.
Reflection Papers
Have students write a reflection paper discussing what they learned from the experience, their strengths, and areas for improvement. It will help promote deep thinking, self-awareness, and critical analysis.

Peer Teaching
Peer teaching encourages active student engagement and interaction. When students teach their peers, they must explain concepts, ask and answer questions, and discuss ideas, fostering a more interactive learning environment.

Simulation and Role Play
Incorporate role-playing exercises in oral exams where students take on specific roles and respond to scenarios, applying their knowledge in practice.
Field Trips
Field trips encourage critical thinking as students analyze what they see, hear, and experience. They must ask questions, make connections, and draw conclusions, all of which are vital thinking skills that AI cannot replicate.
