1. Two pieces on ChatGPT first today:
a) the more academic of the two is this piece by Chung Kwan Lo for the Education Sciences journal, What Is the Impact of ChatGPT on Education? A Rapid Review of the Literature https://www.mdpi.com/2227-7102/13/4/410 (PDF below);
b) the more accessible of the two is this discussion between Marcus James and Karen Waterston on the TeachingEnglish Facebook page, AI and teaching https://www.facebook.com/TeachingEnglish.BritishCouncil/videos/130698643285159/
Scroll down the page for a wide range of other videos. (You don’t have to log in to Facebook to watch them.)
2. Why Autism is a Difference not a Deficit is a succinct new video from the Autism Education Trust (AET) https://youtu.be/h-bc1CJlhbM
The AET’s Autistic Young Expert’s Panel lively YouTube channel is here https://www.youtube.com/@autisticyoungexperts7988/featured

3. Alexandra Mihai’s latest post on her blog, The Educationalist, is entitled Are universities learning organisations? https://educationalist.substack.com/p/are-universities-learning-organisations
Alexandra observes wryly that “while we (universities) do talk a lot about learning, when we get to unpack the concept and apply it to universities as a workplace, it’s surprising how little of what we preach we are actually putting into practice”.
4. And, finally, how many of these health advice myths listed by The Guardian are believed in globally, I wonder? https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2023/apr/29/20-health-advice-myths-investigate
Have I been religiously drinking kefir daily for no good reason?
