Welcome back, Vampires!

We hope you had a restorative break and that you are feeling ready to embrace the AI revolution…because ChatGPT is here and your students are more than certainly using it!

OpenAI tools have an enormous potential for learning, but also raise ethical questions, which is why AISB is currently looking into legal implications and policies. As we all know, our school needs to function within the scope of the GDPR.

However, unlike New York City schools, We DO NOT plan to ban it. We are currently researching it from a security standpoint and will update you if anything changes.

Let’s step back today to see how it works, where to find it, and how to leverage it for education.


To show you how it works, we logged in and asked the question. 
In under a minute, here is what it generated:

ChatGPT is a language processing model developed by OpenAI that has the ability to generate human-like text based on a given prompt. This technology has the potential to revolutionize K-12 education by providing students with personalized, on-demand tutoring and feedback.

One of the main benefits of ChatGPT in education is its ability to adapt to the needs and abilities of individual students. By analyzing a student’s past responses and performance, ChatGPT can provide tailored instruction and guidance, helping students to learn at their own pace and in a way that is most effective for them. This personalized approach has the potential to significantly improve student outcomes, particularly for those who may struggle with traditional classroom learning.

Additionally, ChatGPT could also be used to provide students with additional support outside of the classroom. For example, students could use ChatGPT to get immediate feedback on assignments or to ask for clarification on a concept they are struggling with. This could help to reduce the burden on teachers and allow them to focus on other aspects of their job, such as lesson planning and classroom management.

Overall, ChatGPT has the potential to greatly enhance the education experience for K-12 students by providing personalized, on-demand support and feedback. Its ability to adapt to the needs of individual students and provide additional support outside of the classroom makes it a valuable tool for educators and learners alike.

DALL-E is another popular OpenAI tool taking the market by storm, amidst backlash from the artist community. You can ask it to generate an image based on a prompt. Here was our prompt for the image above: a classroom where students and teachers are actively using computers and robots for learning.

Want to give it a try?

Educators and professionals from different sectors have been grappling with the pros and cons of ChatGPT since it was released, just over a month ago.

The key here may be to maximize the writing of prompts and consider how it may automate a lot of the work we do, like generating lesson plans and resources for class.
