In January through April 2020, The Western Pennsylvania Writing Project & The CMU CREATE Lab, via their AI and Humanity Study Group, posed this question – Should we treat robots more like humans or humans more like robots? – to a national network of colleagues and invited discussion. The discussion group convened online monthly for four months and invited interested educators to come together to “play” with a set of ideas related to the intersections of AI and humanity in a supportive community. The aim of this project was to kick off an exploration about how the technologies we create impact the broader social and learning ecosystems.
