Teachers have been finding ChatGPT to be a valuable tool for creating quizzes, tests, lesson plans, and simulating challenging conversations. For instance, at the American International School in Chennai, India, ChatGPT is used to teach students about AI tools and responsible internet use. Students are advised to critically evaluate ChatGPT's answers and confirm information through primary sources.
“In her classroom, she advises students to remember that the answers that ChatGPT gives may not be credible and accurate all the time," said Geetha Venugopal, a high school computer science teacher at the American International School. The teacher added one should, "think critically about whether they should trust the answer, and then confirm the information through other primary resources," OpenAI stated in the post.
