What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is a tool that uses artificial intelligence to generate human-like text based on input provided by the user. It’s not your professor, rather it’s like having your own personal assistant. In addition to correct your grammar and spelling, it can also generate new sentences, paragraphs and questions for you. And to be honest, who doesn’t want a little help with their tasks to save their time as well as to improve its quality?
How educators can use ChatGPT?
If you are an amazing person with uncommon wisdom, then you might not need it. But this world is a place for ordinary persons with average intelligence too. So, this Chat GPT might be a great assistance for them.
Here are 15 ways in which educators can use AI like Chat GPT to ameliorate their performance while teaching students:
- Use it as a smarter search engine
If you are a person who needs Google more often than drinking water, May we recommend you using ChatGPT?
When you just need to know quick facts, Google is absolutely terrific. But for more complex answers and cumbrous topics, ChatGPT could be an optimal solution. Instead of getting involved in the hassle of visiting a variety of websites, you can directly refer to the response provided by Chat GPT. Moreover, if you have any further queries, you can ask it follow-up questions. But as the sources of the response is obscure, always try to verify your information from reliable sources.
- As a reading comprehension tool to generate reading passages
Educators can use ChatGPT to help students enhance their reading comprehension skills. ChatGPT can be instructed to generate a passage on a topic that students are studying, and then have students read the passage and answer questions regarding it. This can be a convenient method to judge students’ understanding of the subject and to pick out areas where they may need extra help.
To contribute to the advantages, it can adjust the response to reading levels! So rather than seeking out for hours trying to find skillful paragraphs to use with your students, give AI a try.
- As a writing prompt creator
Ever wondered a solution for the students who say they don’t know how to begin? Well, Chat GPT can provide the perfect remedy for it. ChatGPT can help educators generate intriguing writing prompts for students to answer. For example, a teacher could ask ChatGPT to generate a story opener or a creative writing prompt, and then have your students finish it using their own writing. This can be a unique, fun and interactive way to get students enthusiastic about writing.
- As a vocabulary builder
ChatGPT can help students broaden their vocabulary by generating sentences using words that students may not be acquainted with. Teachers can ask ChatGPT to frame sentences using a particular word, and then have students explain the meaning of the word based on the context of the sentence. This can be a amusing and interactive way to help students learn new words and improve their vocabulary.
- Get analytic questions to scrutinize students’ understanding
Educators can use Chat GPT to create assignments for students to examine students’ understanding on a particular topic. Besides that, you can also teach students to use this function themselves. Encourage them to ask ChatGPT for review questions on a specific topic and check if they can get the correct answers.

It can help you with professional wording, articulate your writing and make the whole process a lot easier.

Getting answers from Google is terrific. But one thing that sets Chat GPT apart from Google is that you can ask follow-up questions. Unquestionably you should use this to your advantage!

This helps them to build up their confidence and practice debating in general through which they can improve their debating skills.
