Generate Interactive Lessons in Seconds with Curipod

Artificial intelligence (AI) has been one of the most noteworthy and polarizing topics in education in 2023. Although it seemed to come out of nowhere, AI has been an influential part of our daily life for quite some time. Many educators (including myself) find it scary to think about some of the challenges of AI; however, there are many time-saving benefits to teachers so that you can focus on what really matters - your students!

I recently came across Curipod, which uses AI to generate grade and subject-specific interactive lessons for students. For example, once I signed up for a free account, I chose to generate a 5th-grade lesson on fractions. Curipod designed an interactive lesson filled with open-ended questions, content about fractions, drawing activities, sample problems, and even a brain break! I could easily add or remove content, activities, and assignments if I wanted to modify any activities.

Curiopod reminds me of some of the features of NearPod and Kahoot combined, which makes learning engaging, fun, and student-centered. For instance, much like NearPod, students log in with a class code or QR code, enter their name, and the teacher controls how to navigate the presentation.

Curiopod provides students multiple response options for sharing their understanding, such as drawing and entering text. In addition, students can see each other’s work and “vote” for the best answer or drawing.

Conclusion


In conclusion, the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) has profoundly impacted education in 2023. While AI may initially seem daunting, its benefits for teachers cannot be overlooked. By leveraging AI-powered tools like Curipod, teachers can save valuable time and energy on mundane educational tasks, allowing them to dedicate more attention to their students. Curipod's grade and subject-specific interactive lessons, reminiscent of NearPod and Kahoot, provide an engaging, student-centered learning experience. With features such as open-ended questions, drawing activities, sample problems, and the ability to modify content, Curiopod empowers students to actively participate, collaborate, and showcase their understanding.
