ChatBot: Friend or Foe?

"The bot is more of a synthesizer than a critical thinker. It would do well on a compare-and-contrast essay, but is less able to create a unique thesis and to defend that thesis."

Suggestion: Instead of testing students on how good they are at memorizing facts [which they can easily get he internet)] drill students on:

  • being able to remember information over time,
  • generalizing learning to new situations 
  • creatively developing a new way of thinking about an issue
  • have students evaluate the program’s initial response to a prompt, then consider how to improve it through revision.
  • In this way, the ChatGPT writes the rough draft, "Students can then learn how to move beyond the first draft to make their essays better."

Some teachers are already "recognizing the instructional value of ChatGPT for deeper, more engaged learning."

"Adam Stevens remarks, ChatGPT is only a threat if our education system continues to  'pursue rubric points and not knowledge.'"
