Nurturing Critical Digital Literacy in the Era of Advancing AI


This research project examines the responsible and ethical integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) within academia, with a particular emphasis on enhancing digital literacy and fostering a deeper understanding of AI's ethical implications. Implemented across multiple sections of a freshman academic writing course, the study highlights the critical role of comprehensive guidelines and educational interventions in promoting student autonomy and responsible AI utilization. Using an exploratory classroom-based action research design, the study employs a mixed methods approach that combines qualitative and quantitative data. Students participate in a multi-phased assignment, critically evaluating AI-generated content alongside human-generated material, emphasizing the necessity of human involvement in ensuring the accuracy, conciseness, and ethical integrity of academic work. The findings shed light on the importance of equipping students with the necessary knowledge and skills to navigate the rapidly evolving landscape of technological advancements while upholding ethical standards and fostering responsible AI integration within academic environments.
