Snappy answers to stupid questions
I got a marketing survey from one of the legal publishers. The questions were typically asinine. One asked whether I preferred “unique” or “traditional” teaching styles. Yes, a major publisher of educational material actually misused the word “unique” to mean “innovative”.
But I liked the last question:
Looking ahead to the future, what types of materials or development can you envision that will help aid you in teaching more productively or help you to produce better outcomes with your students?
To which I responded:
An artificially intelligent robot to grade exams for me. And artificially intelligent students to take them.
That would really rock my world.
