As educators and families grapple with the rapidly changing technological landscape and tools like ChatGPT, our organizational approach is to lean in strongly to opportunities to cultivate connections, relationships, conditions, and academic identities that buffer against incentives to cut corners.

In this presentation and interactive discussion with Challenge Success co-founder, Denise Pope, Ph.D., and School Design Partner, Drew Schrader, M.Ed., we will share what we know about belonging, cheating, and the potential implications of ChatGPT and artificial intelligence for schools. With data from the Challenge Success Student Survey, taken by over 250,000 students, as well as insights from our work with schools around the country, we will discuss how educators can adapt to reduce cheating behaviors. 

This event will also offer a forum for questions, discussion, and collaboration for families and educators alike to examine how we, as adults, respond to youth when they cheat, and how we can dig into the underlying causes to bolster their skills moving forward.

A recording of the event will be sent to all registrants on March 31st.
