Education Considerations for New ChatGPT


ChatGPT has become a popular tool for communication among educators, especially during the pandemic. However, there are considerations that educators need to take into account when using ChatGPT in their teaching practice.

A study by the Walton Family Foundation found that within only two months of introduction, 51% of 1,000 K-12 teachers reported having used ChatGPT, with 40% using it at least once a week.

With the rise of chatbots, ChatGPT has become one of the most popular AI-enabled chat platforms for communication. Teachers have found it to be a convenient tool to use in the classroom, especially during the pandemic where virtual communication has become the norm.

However, like any other technology, there are certain considerations that need to be taken into account when using ChatGPT for teaching purposes.

Considerations for Educators

  • Privacy and Security: As an educator, one must ensure that students’ data is protected and that ChatGPT complies with data protection and security regulations.
  • Context-Specific Responses: Educators must ensure that ChatGPT’s responses are context-specific and provide relevant and precise information to students.
  • Integration with Curriculum: ChatGPT should be integrated into teaching materials to make the most of its potential.
  • Provide Assistance to Students: Educators should be prepared to provide immediate assistance to students who may have problems using ChatGPT.
  • Ensure Equality: Educators should ensure that ChatGPT does not discriminate against any student based on gender, race, or religion, amongst other factors.
Personalized teaching

Some examples of how we’ve seen educators exploring how to teach and learn with tools like ChatGPT:

  • Drafting and brainstorming for lesson plans and other activities
  • Help with the design of quiz questions or other exercises
  • Experimenting with custom tutoring tools
  • Customizing materials for different preferences (simplifying language, adjusting to different reading levels, creating tailored activities for different interests)
  • Providing grammatical or structural feedback on portions of writing
  • Use in upskilling activities in areas like writing and coding (debugging code, revising writing, asking for explanations)
  • Critique AI-generated text

ChatGPT can be a useful tool for educators when used appropriately. However, the considerations mentioned above need to be taken into account to ensure that the tool is used safely and ethically to promote student learning.
