ChatGPT for pupils

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationFeatured article


This edition of Sapientia leads with a focus on ChatGPT.
Miles Berry, Professor of Computing Education at the
University of Roehampton, discusses the technology that
powers ChatGPT and considers potential use cases
identified by teachers. These include: creating lesson
plans; identifying content for presentations; building
multiple-choice quizzes; and making a mark scheme that
produces model answers for exam questions.
Berry also suggests that ChatGPT, and other large
language model generative artificial intelligence, could
fulfil some, but by no means all, of the roles of a teacher.
Limitations here include the extent to which the
technology has been trained, its inability to get everything
‘right’, and its potential to cause ethical issues.
