Frequently Asked Questions About ChatGPT for Kids
Why should kids learn ChatGPT?
ChatGPT has great potential to offer highly personalized learning for students. Because of this, almost all major education programs, such as Khan Academy, Quizlet, Duolingo, and Chegg, have integrated ChatGPT into their products. Students can also use ChatGPT directly (which is free). However, to get the best learning out of ChatGPT requires some important skills. Understanding some basics of the technology behind ChatGPT helps with that as well.
In addition, ChatGPT is a great tool to develop critical thinking, creativity, and executive functions such as how to plan things. Many professionals use ChatGPT for brainstorming, including several accomplished people who have said so publicly. The focus of this class is to explore the creativity aspects of ChatGPT and help students develop strategic planning and critical thinking skills.
Some parents and teachers worry that students might use ChatGPT to cheat on school homework. Should I be concerned?
ChatGPT is a great tool for learning and brainstorming. There are also situations where using it is not appropriate. It is important for teachers and parents to make sure students are aware of the importance of the learning process and when using ChatGPT is not allowed when it comes to homework. Just like we teach students how to use calculators, even though calculators can be misused. ChatGPT can be a highly effective learning tool like no other. Mastering the tool will bring great benefits.
Is ChatGPT safe for kids to use?
The OpenAI team went to extraordinary efforts to safeguard ChatGPT. You can learn more about what they have done at this blog on their Approach to AI Safety.
What other AI classes do you offer for kids?
Beyond ChatGPT, our AI explorers class covers a wide range of AI topics including computer vision, robotics, AI for art/music, etc. It also teaches students at conceptual level the technologies behind these AI systems, such as neural networks, supervised learning, etc. This class requires Scratch coding.
Our advanced AI course is AI Creators, which are mostly coding focused. And we will go deeper in the technology side as well coving Convolutional Neural Networks, GAN, etc. Taking this class requires Python.
All of our AI classes put a strong focus on real world applications and state of art technologies. We continue to update them as new technologies emerge.
