CREATIVITY AND GENERATIVE AI IN EDUCATIONAL CONTEXT: CHALLENGE AND FUTURE SCENARIOS. SURVEY ON THE PERCEPTIONS OF STUDENTS AND TEACHERS

Eugenia Treglia, Rosella Tomassoni

Abstract


Creativity is considered a crucial 21st-century competency in many different fields, including education (Treglia, 2020; Patston et al., 2021). Recent advancements in generative Artificial Intelligence (AI), are challenging the notion of creativity as an exclusively human attribute. Generative models of AI, in fact, has exhibited the ability to produce new and original elements by combining pre-existing data (Campione et al., 2023). Whilst the importance of both creativity and AI are well established in educational system (Gabriel et al., 2022), less is known about how students and teacher perceive and value the relationship between AI and creativity. After examining some crucial aspects of human creativity in connection with generative AI in learning environments, this article discusses the results of a survey conducted on a sample of secondary school teachers and university students of educational sciences about the opportunities and challenges represented by the development and implementation of AI systems in educational settings and the interaction between human creativity and AI.
