Abstract

In this essay, three English educators who attended the National Technology Leadership Summit reflect on the benefits of using GenAI in English education while simultaneously considering the perils of its use. After posing many critical questions for consideration, they conclude with a call for teacher educators to develop a robust research agenda focused on GenAI in partnership with preservice teachers and students, as well as a push to engage in policy advocacy that can inform local and state policies.
