ChatGPT: Students’ Perspectives and Experiences
Artificial intelligence (AI) has become part of our daily lives. In most of the day-to-day activities we perform, we use AI (i.e., checking emails). ChatGPT, a new wave of generative AI, is branching off towards many fields, including education (OpenAI, 2023). Views on this advanced generative AI in academia are divided. Some teachers believe in its potential for teaching and learning, while others have concerns related to employment and ethics. However, since ChatGPT has been available for only four months, there have been few studies about students’ views, experiences, and usage of this generative AI and its potential implications for their future careers (Carvalho et al., 2022).
Drawing from our current research, we will provide some insights on students’ perspectives and experiences with AI tools like ChatGPT, address ethical considerations, as well as possible ways for teachers to incorporate generative AI into their pedagogical practices.
