CHATGPT: Transforming education
By Israa lulu 📅 January 2022
ChatGPT, created by OpenAI, has been a highly-discussed topic in the past few months. As an advanced AI program designed to assist with various tasks and answer questions, ChatGPT is considered one of the most promising technological advancements in recent times. I have been using ChatGPT since its release and have been consistently impressed by its capabilities. It not only provides accurate answers to a wide range of queries but can also adapt to different personas as directed by the user, making it an extremely effective personal assistant.
Recent statistics show that ChatGPT reached 1 million users in just five days, faster than other popular platforms like Netflix and social media platforms. As a technologist, I genuinely appreciate the efforts and programming that went into creating such an advanced computer program like ChatGPT. It demonstrates the potential for a revolution in the way we work and learn; making tasks faster, more efficient, and more effective. On the other hand, it may also lead to job loss in fields like personal assistance and secretarial work.
From an educator’s perspective, cutting-edge technology like ChatGPT can play a significant role in keeping the learning and teaching process continuous, fresh, and efficient. ChatGPT can assist educators with tasks such as designing and writing lesson plans, developing success criteria and learning objectives, finding interactive activities, writing parent letters, providing feedback examples, creating course outlines and syllabi, suggesting teaching strategies, forming high-order questions, and creating rubrics. Additionally, ChatGPT can act as a valuable tool for both teachers and students, acting as a search engine.
Overall, ChatGPT has great potential to assist anyone in the field of education in their daily tasks by providing a wide range of functions. I hope that people don’t resist and ban this promising technology under the excuse that it kills creativity and destroys human intelligence. It is not about what it can do but how it is used. Let’s embrace the arrival of the AI era!
