Best 5 Ways Chat GPT Will Impact Education Positively
The Chat GPT-3 is a cutting-edge artificial intelligence tool that enables natural language processing.
Chat GPT-3 uses a combination of machine learning and deep learning to help students in India with their homework.
The AI tool can be used by students to solve math problems, answer questions on history and science, and find out the answers to any other question they need help with.
Every child deserves access to technology to help them succeed inside and outside school.
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is an AI chatbot that uses natural language processing to create humanlike conversational dialogue. The language model can respond to questions and compose various written content, including articles, social media posts, essays, code, and emails.
ChatGPT is a form of generative AI — a tool that lets users enter prompts to receive humanlike images, text, or videos that are created by AI.
ChatGPT is similar to the automated chat services found on customer service websites, as people can ask it questions or request clarification to ChatGPT’s replies. The GPT stands for “Generative Pre-trained Transformer,” which refers to how ChatGPT processes request and formulates responses.
How Will Chat GPT Be Beneficial For Students?
Another study done by top boarding schools in India shows that Chat GPT will be beneficial for students because it allows them to get feedback on their work from teachers and peers, which is hard to do in a classroom setting. It also allows students to learn from each other, which is something that happens naturally in a social media environment.
It’s easy to use, but it also allows you to customize the experience to suit your needs.
You can create chat rooms that are based on a subject matter or even difficulty.
You can also set up bots that will remind students of upcoming assignments and due dates.
1. Concisely rephrasing lengthy articles
Students are frequently unable to delve deeply into concepts, essays, or articles to build full understanding in academic settings due to academic pressure and demanding and busy study schedules. Because of the numerous deadlines that students frequently struggle to fulfill, this difficulty is often made worse by the fact that certain publications are too long to read. In these situations, Chat GPT might be useful in giving you a broad overview of an essay or article.
You can utilize Chat GPT to summarize articles, research papers, and even essays to get the gist of the material in a little summary.
2. Organizing, creating, and sending emails
Writing emails, applications, or formal letters of communication to your school, teachers, or peers may be something you have to do frequently as a student. In particular, if you have a busy academic schedule, writing such formal papers can be exceedingly time-consuming, laborious, and taxing.
In this regard, Chat GPT may greatly simplify your life by writing any emails or applications you might need to send out in a precise, meaningful, and cohesive manner. You may use it to generate a grammatically correct and formal email in a matter of seconds by entering the objective of the communication and specifying the tone you want your email or application to have.
3. Come up with the story
Being a student is a demanding job on many levels, and given the innumerable fields in which they must work, there may occasionally be times when they are at a loss for original or fresh project ideas. In addition, if you are a language or literature student in high school or college, you may need to write essays, short stories, or poems rather frequently for class, assignments, or projects. Many students and even writers have writer’s block when they have to come up with such ideas repeatedly.
Best 5 Ways Chat GPT Will Impact Education Positively
Here are the best impacts as I see them, organized by topic:
1. Learning How to Write Will Become Easier
If we put all our fears about Chat GPT aside, teachers might consider how Chat GPT could become a writing coach or personal tutor for students.
Rather than waiting for teacher feedback, students could receive feedback within seconds with this tool. There are many potential benefits to allowing students to use Chat GPT to get feedback about their writing.
Once the feedback is provided by the AI, students can ask the AI to do specific tasks that involve revising and editing the writing. Reaping these benefits all depends on if teachers can trust students to use this tool to create something new rather than just copy and paste the responses to finish their work quickly, with little effort.
2. Revision Can Finally Take Center Stage
If we think of Chat GPT as a teaching tool rather than the enemy, we can see that this AI tool has the potential to launch teachers and students into a whole new world when it comes to revision.
What if we started focusing our writing units on revision and editing more than any other part of the writing process?
I’ve always thought revision coming at the end of the writing process was a mistake. It should come at the beginning!
In my opinion, Chat GPT does not mean the end of high school English, as this article proclaims. Instead, we could allow students to collaborate with Chat GPT to revise their writing.
3. Homework Will Require Rethinking
I know teachers are concerned that Chat GPT is a threat to homework and that they won’t be able to assign homework anymore because of the availability of this tool.
Educators need to realize that homework assignments are an equity and social justice issue.
In my opinion, all schoolwork should be done at school. I have many reasons for this, but mainly because there are students in every classroom who lack the time, resources, and proper home environment to be able to complete their homework successfully.
If you don’t want Chat GPT doing your students’ homework, then don’t assign homework. It’s one more reason to add to my long list of reasons why homework needs to go.
4. Teaching Writing Will Change…for the Better
Chat GPT can write virtually anything you ask of it. This tool will eventually cost money though. Even so, Chat GPT is forcing us to ponder a scary question…do students even need to learn to write anymore, if AI can do it so easily for them? I know it’s an appalling question for someone who majored in English to ask, but I believe it’s a valid one. There are many new technologies that have made past technologies irrelevant (writing is an ancient technology). Think overhead projectors, phone booths, call waiting, and Blockbuster.
Of course, writing will continue to be important! We live in the information age. Copying and pasting what an ai produces into a cover letter, blog post, or essay is unethical, dishonest, and plagiarism of AI. The way we teach writing, critical thinking, and research skills needs to change. It’s needed to change for a long time. AI writing tools like Chat GPT will force this change to happen faster. But, how? English teachers are expected to teach three major genres of writing narrative, informative, and argumentative. Chat GPT is capable of doing all of this for students, easily, quickly, and efficiently.

5. Research Will Become Easier…Eventually
Chat GPT has a very clear disclaimer warning users of inaccurate information. But, this technology is only going to get better with time.
Eventually, students will be able to use AI tools to learn new information. But, if this is going to happen, teachers are going to need tools and resources for helping students identify and navigate potential wrong answers, fake news, and bias.
Honestly, these resources were needed a decade ago. Teachers are still trying to help students navigate the wild west of the world wide web, with very few tools and resources to help them do so. Part three of this blog series will help.
