Conventional educational institutes think of ChatGPT as being a threat to students and teachers. Their fear is students will “cheat “, and not bother to learn anything because they can use Chat GPT to do their homework. The truth is that Chat GPT has the potential to revolutionize the field of education by providing personalized and efficient learning experiences for students.
At the ApniPathshala Learning Pods, we want to encourage students to explore and learn how to use cutting-edge AI tools like ChatGPT, to prepare them for the world of work and real life!
Quickstart tutorial for students and teachers to learn the use of ChatGPT.
- Teachers can use ChatGPT to generate personalized Lesson plans.
- They can use it as an assistant, so it can provide students with immediate answers to their questions when they are stuck.
- They can use it to generate interactive educational content such as quizzes, games, and simulations that can make learning more engaging and interactive for students. This can help to improve student engagement and achievement, as students are more likely to be motivated to learn when they are actively engaged in the learning process.
- What about the worries that ChatGPT could lead to a decrease in critical thinking skills, as students may rely too heavily on the model to provide them with answers , rather than developing their own problem-solving abilities. This is true only if the teacher asks boring questions, which need rote learning. Teachers who ask better open-ended questions will be able to nudge their students into thinking for themselves.

- Some teachers are worried that ChatGPT could replace them. It will replace boring tuition classes which teach kids to cram answers mindlessly, and this is all for the best. It will never be able to replace an inspiring teacher, who cares for their students, and wants to help them become self-directed learners. The human touch in education is key, because students look up to teachers who motivate them, and will do their best to please them.
- Chat GPT can enhance the role of teachers when used wisely, and should be used to supplement traditional learning methods rather than replace them.
