I wonder if/when AI-powered text editors will be banned in schools. 🤔

@rrhoover Though the AI engine remains valuable. The world is stepping up for AI and we believe AI engine can help humans with more tedious jobs. Just like proofreading, creating logical content etc. When it comes to a ban for students in schools, the same can be used by authorities in evaluation.

@rrhoover Thats a real concern. We are watching that space close. Education is indeed one of our primary focus vertical. The AI we build for the consumer facing app has benefits for teachers and educators.

@rrhoover I similarly wonder if teachers will see the benefit in using them to elevate students' writing skills. Used properly, they can really help students to become better writers overall. I think of it as I do calculators: the tool can perform the basic function for the user, but it can also help the user in better understanding the method, thereby elevating the user's skillset for the next iteration of similar problem-solving.

The main issue here with regard to text-editing and writing is that so much of it is based on creativity and style, two things which cannot be taught. They can be sharpened and honed, but because style is so unique to each individual, one of the major pitfalls I see here is that we could end up with a lot of similar material that basically produces a homogeneous experience for readers. 🤔 🤔

@adammarx13 @rrhoover Well said !! Creativity and style can be shaped up.

@rrhoover I hope not. Differentiation of instruction is difficult. Providing meaningful support to students on writing assignments continues to baffle some educators. I hope products like Refly, WriteWell, and Hemmingway App will be used to nail down improved communication. I always bark about pairing a classic with a contemporary in instruction. Reading and writing is a classic skill that could/should be paired with technology to assist students with learning disabilities, as well as those who want to explore new platforms.

@greaterthan1000 That's great to hear. Would love to hear your insights on this ! Connect on twitter/linkedIn ?

@rrhoover it's basically the same argument that used to be (still is?) made about banning calculators in math class.

@rrhoover that's definitely a good question. To what point does education become just as valuable if not more than technology. Imagination and innovation will always be key to keeping people ahead of the curve when it comes to inviting the next new wave of content and or products.

Refly is a smart editor, specially made with content creators in mind. Refly will help you reduce your writing time by 10-20%. This is done by reducing the time for proofreading (which is average 40% in writing). Refly can help you with linguistic errors, SEO and publishing at this point. Also, Refly will help you stay on track with your writing goals by the habit feature.

@kwdinc experiencing lots of bugs at this point. Crashes when copying and pasting text from other editing apps (e.g. Google Docs). Looks like a great app though. Hope to see improvements in the near future :)
