AI in Education use is not needed

Prevent pupils from having AI autocomplete. Let the pupils learn. Teachers can mark pupil code once more, not the AI code. It is deeply frustrating in the classroom. My pupils don’t like it either. At least turn this off by default.

They were originally going to do this, but they announced Teams for Edu’s depreciation soon after, and never talked about it again, so I doubt they will go though with this change, especially after promising not to make any updates.

I believe there is a setting where you can choose not to have AI run :slight_smile:

Yes, but this can only be toggled by the user, so the interviewee could just sneakily flick it on and use it for a second.

True. You could always just use another IDE, but the AI usually isn’t too helpful either :joy:

True. Also apparently it told a student a racial slur.
