Woohoo, as you can see above, Claude now lets you organize your chat support documents, or whatever you want to call them, into “Projects.” Here’s an explainer video from Claude.ai on the subject.

An explanation from Claude:

Projects help organize your work and leverage knowledge across multiple conversations. Upload docs, code, and files to create themed collections that Claude can reference again and again. View website overview on ‘What Are Projects?'

Claude Pro and Team users can now organize chats into Projects. Projects bring together internal knowledge and chat activity in one place so Claude can help you generate ideas, make strategic decisions, and deliver exceptional results.

With Projects, you can: Upload docs and code—like style guides, codebases, or user feedback—so that every response you get from Claude is grounded in expertise about your Project. Generate new content like code snippets or diagrams with Claude and see a preview of your Artifacts in a dedicated panel. Share your most insightful Claude chats and the Artifacts you create on the Project activity feed, allowing your teammates to learn, explore, and build on shared content. Projects are available now in the Pro and Team plans. Upgrade to the Team plan to collaborate with teammates across your organization. You can upload relevant documents, text, code, or other files to a project’s knowledge base, which Claude will use to better understand the context and background for your individual chats within that project. Each project includes a 200K context window, the equivalent of a 500-page book, so users can add all of the insights needed to enhance Claude’s effectiveness. via email 6/25/2024

This is amazing stuff, and it reminds me a bit of a custom GPT. :-)

AI in Schools Project

For fun, I uploaded a few documents about AI in Schools. Claude made it easy to interrogate the content and seek more insights, such as what appears below. No doubt, a long prompt would work well for a Claude.ai Project, and I am looking forward to transferring my long prompts and documents in ChatGPT Plus custom GPTs into Claude Projects and see how that works.

In the meantime, here’s a response to a query:

Based on the documents provided, here are some key insights about how AI is being used in schools and related trends:

  1. Widespread adoption:
  • AI usage, particularly ChatGPT, has become significantly more common in schools over the past year.
  • Around 50% of teachers, K-12 students, undergraduates, and parents report using ChatGPT at least weekly for school-related purposes.
  1. Usage patterns:
  • Teachers primarily use AI for creative ideas, lesson planning, and creating exercises/quizzes/tests.
  • K-12 students mostly use AI for help with assignments and writing essays.
  • Undergraduates use AI heavily for studying and test preparation.
  1. Positive perceptions:
  • Majorities across all groups (teachers, students, parents) view AI chatbots favorably and believe they have potential to enhance learning.
  • Many see AI as a valuable tool for helping students learn more efficiently.
  1. Lack of formal policies:
  • Most teachers, students, and parents report that their schools do not have formal policies on AI use.
  • There’s a gap between current unofficial usage and desired guidance.
  1. Teacher perspectives:
  • Teachers see AI’s most positive impact as improving student efficiency and productivity.
  • Many teachers want more training on how to effectively use AI in the classroom.
  1. Student career interests:
  • K-12 students are unsure about pursuing AI-related careers, while undergraduates show more interest, especially among men and AAPI students.
  1. Concerns and challenges:
  • There are worries about cheating, data privacy, and the broader societal impacts of AI.
  • Older teachers and those less familiar with AI tend to have more concerns.
  1. Future outlook:
  • Majorities across groups expect AI usage in education to increase over the next 5 years.
  • There’s a general desire for more integration of AI into education, but in a thoughtful, guided manner.

These insights highlight that AI is becoming an integral part of education, with generally positive perceptions, but there’s a need for more formal guidance and training to maximize its benefits while addressing potential concerns.
