The challenges and the opportunities of ChatGPT for students

ChatGPT — the new chat bot that is set to revolutionize the way we search online — is already making waves beyond the tech world.

Educators and parents are taking notice of the new generative artificial intelligence technology, and wondering what it means for kids in school. 

From online privacy and misinformation, to worries about cheating and plagiarism, it could seem like it’s all doom and gloom on that front. But, there’s a lot of opportunity there as well, according to Jessica Early. Early is an English professor at Arizona State University who studies teaching — and teaching writing, in particular.

Yvonne So is a mother of three and a member of the contribution board for the Arizona Republic. In a  recent op ed, she argues that our state lawmakers might do better to pay attention to the threats posed to kids by ChatGPT than drag queens or pronouns. 

The Show with them both more about the intersection of ChatGPT and the way kids learn — the challenges and the opportunities.
