Like many educators, I am learning more about ChatGPT and its potential impact on student writing for the future. The “GPT” stands for Generative Pre-trained Transformer. This chatbot was developed by the artificial intelligence company OpenAI. ChatGPT was made available to the public last November, and there are concerns in higher education that many students will be tempted to use this new technology to cheat. ChatGPT can crank out papers with the insertion of a prompt for an assignment. The technology can also impressively produce emails, blogs, answers to discussion board questions, and poems. Basically, as many English teachers now fear, a bot can do all of their students’ homework.
Artificial intelligence cannot replace God-given abilities of teachers
