Please share your questions, positive and negative opinions, and experiences related to Brisk Teaching with Bill Campbell in Computer Service. One purpose of this one-semester pilot is to determine if we should continue with the service next year. Your input will inform that decision.
Brisk Teaching is a new and rapidly developing tool. Below are some of the changes and new features introduced in 2024 with more on Brisk Teaching's What's New page.
Create lessons plans, quizzes, rubrics, resources, etc from YouTube videos
First-draft feedback on YouTube videos created by students (or you).
Create emails, newsletters, and recommendation letters.
Inspect Writing > Replay: Replay a detailed step-by-step of your students' revision history and their copy/paste actions.
Feedback Insights: Suggests insights for student needs to you after using Brisk for feedback on at least five assignments.
Brisk AI detection works best on work created in a Google Doc. Therefore, you will have the best experience if you assign and collect student writing using either the Google Assignments option in My D-E (Blackbaud) or Google Classroom. Click AI detection above for more information.
100% accurate AI writing detection is not possible with any tool given how writing is currently generated by AI Large Language Model tools including ChatGPT. However, AI detection can be a pointer toward the need for a conversation with a student to asses their understanding of their writing or more closely looking at the version history of a document. The Inspect Writing > Reply feature in Brisk may help with this.
Google Assignments in My DE
Any assignment posted to My DE can be created as a Google Assignment. Students work in a Google Doc, which you can access while they are drafting if desired then submit to you via My DE. You can then provide specific comments and feedback or a summative comment that students won't see until you choose to return the work. If you use the My DE grade book, the grade you enter forthe Google Assignment will automatically appear in your grade book. And you can share the grade with students online too, if desired. More details the webpage Using Google Assignments with Blackbaud. (Note that the LTI setup listed in set one has already been completed system-wide.)
Assign and provide feedback on student assignments as normal in Classroom.
