My 5 favorite AI tools for school: Class is in session, and generative AI can help


During last year's back-to-school season, ChatGPT had not yet been unveiled, and generative AI wasn't on everyone's radar. However, today, the topic is more popular than ever, and new helpful AI tools for students are released daily. A common misconception is that generative AI can harm education by promoting cheating. However, when used properly, these tools have the potential to improve student learning and transform workflow significantly. As someone who consistently tests new generative AI tools, I wish I'd had these tools when I was in school.

Artificial Intelligence is Transforming Modern Education


Artificial Intelligence (AI) has a pivotal role in many K-12 educational systems, providing benefits for both students and teachers. To best utilize AI's potential, it is key for governments to implement policies conducive to AI's adoption within classrooms. We discuss the benefits and limitations AI provides to education as well as the steps needed to responsibly use AI in education in the future. AI has contributed massively to making the American educational landscape much stronger and more stable. Through the use of AI in schools, learning has become much more accessible to all groups.

After nearly three months of testing ChatGPT and its AI chatbot spinoffs, I keep coming back to the same conclusion -- I wish I had this technology in college. Students go to college to develop the skills that will serve them in the longer term and eventually help them land their dream role. And although having the opportunity to even attend college in the first place is great, there is no denying that it is a massive time commitment. Full-time college students usually take around 15 credit hours per semester, meaning students spend 15 hours attending class every week, usually distributed among five, three-credit classes. Fifteen hours a week might not seem like a lot, but you also have to factor in study time.

Will artificial intelligence make us smarter or dumber? It's up to us.


Artificial intelligence (AI) language models like ChatGPT, BLOOM, and OPT-175B are a hot topic of conversation in academic circles. What are they? Should they be allowed in educational settings? Will they make us dumber? Will their use lead to widespread cheating? Can we use them to promote critical thinking and writing skills? How? To answer these questions, let's ask ChatGPT.
