ChatGPT is a state-of-the-art language generation model developed by OpenAI. It uses advanced machine learning algorithms to generate human-like text based on a given prompt. With a large corpus of text data and powerful computational resources, ChatGPT can generate a wide range of responses, including conversational responses, summaries, and creative writing. What you may not know about Chat GPT, is that it has written the entirety of this article so far. Every word, letter and comma you just read, was written by the software in less than 10 seconds, and all I had to do was hit copy and paste. With technology like ChatGPT, the door has been left wide open for cheating in schools across the country, prompting different responses, from students, parents, and teachers. ChatGPT came out in November of 2022, and the Initial reaction was panic as teachers and school administrators scrambled to find methods to catch students using the tool. Some students have felt justified using AI, for example student Emily Heyward confessed  “I have the knowledge, I have the lived experience, I’m a good student, I go to all the tutorials and I go to all the lectures and I read everything we have to read but I kind of felt I was being penalized because I don’t write eloquently and I didn’t feel that was right,”. Despite this perspective, teachers and school administrators quickly rushed to ban the program on school networks, the most recent of which being the New York City public schools, citing “concerns about negative impacts on student learning, and concerns regarding the safety and accuracy of content.” Moreover the company behind ChatGPT, Open AI, has released a ChatGPT detector; however, it is not entirely reliable, and educators have found the Idea of a ChatGPT detector annoying. Gina Parnaby, the chair of the English department at the Marist School stated  “I don’t want to be in an adversarial relationship with my students, If our mind-set approaching this is that we have to build a better mousetrap to catch kids cheating, I just think that’s the wrong approach, because the kids are going to figure something out.” Technology is only progressing, and programs similar to and better than ChatGPT will continue to be released. UCLA professor and writer for Scientific American stated “The time when a person had to be a good writer to produce good writing ended in late 2022, and we need to adapt. To remain competitive throughout their careers, students need to learn how to prompt an AI writing tool to elicit worthwhile output and know how to evaluate its quality, accuracy and originality”.  Many educators have also found the tool to be very helpful in creating lessons as it can create outlines, write personalized lesson plans, or generate ideas for classroom activities. Jon Gold a with grade history teacher at the moses brown school for example used the AI to generate a multiple choice quiz for his students about an article, and of the 10 questions generated, 6 were usable. I asked Chat GPT itself what it can be used for in Schools and it came up with 5 plausible ways like Virtual tutoring, and research assistance. Kevin Roose, author for the New York Times said it best when he exclaimed “This adjustment (to chat GPT) won’t be easy. Sudden technological shifts rarely are. But who better to guide students into this strange new world than their teachers?”
