The benefits and disadvantages of using the highly disruptive ChatGPT (or similar) in education is being widely debated. Some educators are intent on total elimination on this tool in education while others are excited to see how the technology can enhance education and learning outcomes.
Sarah Dillard, the founder of Kaleidoscope, has written a thought-provoking article in The74 titled "Schools Must Embrace the Looming Disruption of ChatGPT" in which she concludes that the choice is to either tighten the screws on the old ideas about education or to aid and prepare students to navigate the bold new world of artificial intelligence.
The staff here at Ammonite fall firmly in the second group. To be honest, though, we fluctuate from extreme excitement to trepidation, but the trepidation only lasts briefly as solutions to any perceived issues are quickly solved - and implemented.
In a previous blog, we outlined some of the features that have been incorporated into our learning and RTO management system.
Overall, we believe that the benefits of ChatGPT in education far outweigh any potential disadvantages, and we are eager to see how it will continue to shape the future of education.
