ChatGPT Is Wake-Up Call For Schools To Limit Tech In Classrooms

  • Every week I get dozens of emails about ChatGPT and student education. As a professor of law focused on technology and a mom of three kids I am fielding messages from my kids’ schools, from my workplace, and from colleagues near and far.
  • They share a sense of panic about the AI chatbot that is able to almost magically—and instantly—generate schoolwork that students for centuries produced through laborious research and writing. How will students learn to research and write?
  • How will we assess them? Is the use of ChatGPT plagiarism? Should we ban it and how? What policies are other institutions adopting? Do they work? And as the advanced version—ChatGPT4—aced multiple standardized tests, many asked, can we even keep up?
