While generative AI offers diverse applications, its utility in schools has been hindered by technical, ethical, and usability concerns. For example, ChatGPT and Microsoft's Bing chat have their issues, while image generators like Midjourney, DALL-E, and open-source models have limited classroom use due to their platforms or quality.
This article describes how this has all changed with Adobe's Firefly. It is a game-changer, trained on non-copyrighted images and integrated into Photoshop. Firefly's user-friendly interface and image quality make it promising for educational purposes, potentially replacing traditional stock images.
