ChatGPT

Endless Possibilities Unleashed

Start

ChatGPT serves as a valuable tool for students and teachers, facilitating interactive and insightful discussions, providing academic support, and enhancing the learning experience through personalized assistance and information retrieval.

With just a few steps it’s easy to start with this tool at https://chat.openai.com/ From there you can enter your dashboard, where you can ask anything.

The tool streamlines information retrieval. Unlike Google, where time consuming scrolling through numerous websites is required, ChatGPT provides concise, relevant details promptly, saving time and delivering focused insights for a more efficient and direct search experience.

ChatGPT, more or less the same like you have a WhatsApp chat, offers an interactive experience. Users can respond seamlessly after each answer, enabling a dynamic and ongoing conversation. This real-time interaction enhances engagement, clarifies queries, and tailors responses, fostering a personalized and conversational interaction unique to ChatGPT.

As developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) are moving very fast, we only explain some important basic prompts/commands categories here, so that teachers and students can become familiar with how this tool works. If you want to learn more, we recommend using e.g. YouTube to follow the many and free courses on this subject.

Content generator

Creating articles, blog posts, creative writing, and more, is very easy with this powerful tool. Prompts like: “Write a history story of Spain”, can be done in seconds, 

Translations

Translating text from one language to another empowers educators to provide diverse content and enables students to access educational resources in their preferred language. Instead of Google translate with their word-by-word translation, ChatGPT translates the context of the content, which can give better results. You can even ask to change the style of the translation results (more funny, more businesslike, or more formal) or give commands like “How to pronounce that?”

Brainstorming Ideas

ChatGPT can be very helpful in assisting you in brainstorming ideas for education purposes like: Write a basic plan how to start teaching online”, or “Help me to set up a study project “Smart Waste Management System”.

Learning new topics

Providing explanations and information on various subjects. “I want to teach children to swim, what do I need to know”, or “I want to start a sound studio, what do I need”.

Specific facts and details

From history to inventions, the tool provides a treasure of facts and details on almost every subject similar to an encyclopedia: “Who is the founder of Microsoft?”, “What is the capital of Finland?”, or “Who was Nelson Mandela?”

Suggestions

The suggestion prompt can be helpful during your study. “Recommend 5 books about the history of Africa”, or “What are the best YouTube channels to learn more about the history of Africa”. 

Comparison

A compare prompt instructs the model to analyze similarities and differences between two or more subjects, concepts, or entities. For example, “Compare and contrast the themes of love and betrayal in Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and ‘Othello’.” This prompts ChatGPT to identify similarities and differences in the themes across both plays. Or use prompts like: “What is the difference between the graphic design tools: Vista Create and Canva”.

Summorize text

A summarize text prompt directs the model to condense a given (long) passage or document into a concise and coherent summary, capturing the main ideas and key points. For example, “Summarize the article on climate change, highlighting its causes, effects, and potential solutions.” This prompts ChatGPT to provide a condensed overview of the article’s content regarding climate change. The summarize prompt is often used before you copy and paste your own text, but can be also used this text for every subject discussed on the internet, like: “Summarize Alex Hayley’s novel Kunta Kinteh”.

List generation

A list generation prompt instructs the model to generate a list of items or elements based on specific criteria or categories. For example, “Generate a list of five famous scientists and their contributions to their respective fields”, or “Give me a top 10 of the best free online education platforms”. This prompts ChatGPT to create a list along with notable contributions.

Pros and cons

A pros and cons prompt instructs the model to outline the advantages and disadvantages of a given topic or situation. For example, “Discuss the pros and cons of using renewable energy sources.” This prompts ChatGPT to list the benefits and drawbacks of utilizing renewable energy sources for power generation.

Feedback on your text

A “give me feedback on the text I wrote” directs the model to provide constructive criticism or evaluation of a piece of text provided by the user. For example, “Please give me feedback on the essay I wrote about climate change, or ” how would you rewrite this text?”, or “How is my writing style?” This prompts ChatGPT to analyze the essay and offer feedback on its structure, clarity, argumentation, and overall effectiveness.

Role playing

ChatGPT can support a variety of role-playing scenarios, like practice language skills through role-playing conversations, mimicking real-life scenarios like ordering food, asking for directions, etc. Or practice job interviews by taking on the roles of interviewer and interviewee, simulating common questions and responses. A prompt can be: You are interviewing me for a job at Microsoft. Please conduct a practice interview with me.

Mentorships

A mentorship prompt instructs the model to provide guidance, advice, or support in a particular area or subject. For example, “Can you offer mentorship on improving my programming skills?”, or “I am learning graphic design, what kind of business can I start with it? This prompts ChatGPT to offer suggestions, resources, and strategies to help the user enhance their abilities.

Follow up questions

Remember that using this tool is like having a WhatsApp conversation with a real person. It means once you prompt it, it remembers and therefore you can use more prompts on the first one, like: “Write your answer in a more funny way”, “make it shorter”, “rewrite it as a poem or song text”, “can you provide more details”, and so on.

While this AI tool seems to have unlimited options, keep in mind that it’s database don’t provide information (yet) after September 2021. It’s also good to know that the intel given is not always 100% accurate, so always check important and sensitive information.

The tool is free to use (which is more than enough for an average user, or to become familiar with their system) but also has a paid and more advanced version for the professional. 

ChatGPT

Soon after the launch, the number of users went to record levels. The tool started a true revolution because of the unprecedented possibilities it offers and will offer in the future. It is therefore advisable for students and teachers to become familiar with it as soon as possible.
