Here are five strategies and prompts that work for GPT-3.5 & GPT-4
Thank you for continuing to be a voice for how AI can be used well. I appreciate your thoughts and your tone.
I would like to know if you believe your recommendations are also applicable to K-12 teachers. If so, who will teach them? When will they find the time to learn? How far behind their students (7-12, in particular) are they already?
The only people I've seen commenting about ChatGPT (any version) in education are retired K-12 teachers, educational pundits, and non-teachers. Since the program only came out in November, K-12 teachers have not had time to learn about it or learn how to cope with it, let alone adapt it to their teaching practices.
Super useful. Trying to build a product useful for teachers based on AI
Really it is very useful
I have been dipping my toes in ChatGPT and find it extraordinary. (I teach Business Management to 11th graders in an IB program). I find the practical tips and examples you share in this article will be very helpful to me. I am even considering conducting a brief workshop for colleagues using these tips. (I work in a British School in Uruguay). Thank you! Maria (Blanco Pate)
This is so in-depth and practical. Thanks!
I'm missing one thing. Why do you say
I want you to ask me two questions
instead of providing the information directly in your prompt?
Thanks for sprinkling in a great set of references in addition to the really interesting thoughts on AI in teaching. What's the best starting point for learning about the new insights from pedagogy research?
Interesting that it chose opportunity cost examples specific to college and college students - was this because it keyed off the word "college?" If it had been "university" or "advanced degree" would it have chosen university-related examples. If one specified "real-world opportunity costs" or "post graduation"... I may be answering my own question here....
I used to develop curriculum in a past life. Would be interesting to see it generate in-class activities. In fact, when GPT 4 makes image gen available, would be cool to do this example again and see if it can create class room activity resources, diagrams, graphs, etc... An AI-based curriculum developer would put a lot of publishers in an awkward spot! (Educational publishing is a tough market - regulations govern what schools can purchase.)
But if AI isn't necessarily accurate, why encourage this?
Holy cow, did I learn alot! I trying to prepare myslef to help other teachers to use AI. I'm sharing these prompts, article, and links. Thank you! Any advice you have for me would be greatly appreciated!
Great article, thank you Ethan. Ai Literacy is so important for both instructors and students. You've identified lots of great was that teachers and professors at all levels can use AI to enhance the educational experience. We appreciate all of the hard work that you do.
Your write up is interesting. Thanks for advocating for ethical productive use of AI in teaching and learning. I’ve a concern on the part of learners. Learners’ attitude on using AI, ChatGPT etc, determines whether learning and development actually takes place or not. We can use many tools, but the major goal is to have learners motivated, develop a learning and teachable attitude. One other main goal education and training is to nurture skills for the job market as well as life experiences. These AI tools are also being widely adopted by enterprises. It makes sense to integrate them in our teaching and learning practices, whilst advocating for ethical use.
Thank you for updating on the pedagogic use of AI. Certainly challenging but full of resources for students and teachers, better understanding, better explaining.
This is so great as ever, thanks Ethan. Do you have a reference for Sarah Toms' research into the growth of pedagogical research? I'd love to learn more.
Hi Professor,. I took several classes from you in 2015 and I really appreciate you posting this. I have to say as a worker I find this very unsettling because I’m worried I will be obsolete can you write a post about that you’ve mentioned it a couple times but my mind keeps going to universal basic income
Hey, you and the guy at “AI Explained” youtube channel are doing by far the best journalism right now on AI. It’d be really interesting if you two started a podcast! Regardless, I’d contact him, I bet you two would hit it off if you aren’t in touch already. Thanks for the great work!
