Teaching, Learning, & Research

ChatGPT and other Generative AI tools can perform many simple or technical tasks (e.g., basic research, calculations, proofing) and the examples outlined in the table below show how ChatGPT could be incorporated and used to augment teaching and learning. Evenmore, these advanced technologies can be leveraged by researchers at different stages of the research process. Some examples include: writing, research design, data analysis, and data collection. 

Role Description Example of Implementation
Possibility engine AI generates alternative ways of expressing an idea Students write queries in ChatGPT and use the Regenerate response
function to examine alternative responses.
Socratic opponent AI acts as an opponent to develop and argument Students enter prompts into ChatGPT following the structure of a conversation or debate. Teachers can ask students to use ChatGPT to prepare for discussions.
Collaboration coach AI helps groups to research and
solve problems together
Working in groups, students use ChatGPT to find out information to complete tasks and assignments.
Guide on the side AI acts as a guide to navigate
physical and conceptual spaces
Teachers use ChatGPT to generate content for classes/courses (e.g.,
discussion questions) and advice on how to support students in learning specific concepts.
Personal tutor AI tutors each student and gives immediate feedback on progress ChatGPT provides personalized feedback to students based on
information provided by students or teachers (e.g., test scores).
Co-designer AI assists throughout the design process Teachers ask ChatGPT for ideas about designing or updating a
curriculum (e.g., rubrics for assessment) and/or focus on specific goals (e.g., how to make the curriculum more accessible).
Exploratorium AI provides tools to play with,
explore and interpret data
Teachers provide basic information to students who write different queries in ChatGPT to find out more. ChatGPT can be used to support language learning.
Study buddy AI helps the student reflect on
learning material
Students explain their current level of understanding to ChatGPT and ask for ways to help them study the material. ChatGPT could also be used to help students prepare for other tasks (e.g., job interviews).
Motivator AI offers games and challenges to extend learning Teachers or students ask ChatGPT for ideas about how to extend students’ learning after providing a summary of the current level of knowledge (e.g., quizzes, exercises).
Dynamic assessor AI provides educators with a
profile of each student’s current
Students interact with ChatGPT in a tutorial-type dialogue and
then ask ChatGPT to produce a summary of their current state of knowledge to share with their teacher/for assessment.
