When we think of AI, the “elephant in the room” for educators is Plagiarism. This is the third installment from Dr. Jovana Davidovic on AI & Education, this time, addressing Plagiarism. Does the use of AI tools mean plagiarism across the board? What is the connection between Large Language Models (LLMs) and Generative AI, where the machine can write an entire paragraph, a page, or even a book just at one prompt? What are some ways to address GAI, LLM, etc. with regard to plagiarism in education?
