ChatGPT is a Paradigm Shift; why Education Should Embrace It

My latest article:

ChatGPT is an advanced AI tool that has disrupted the educational system. Many students use it to outsource their homework, but some educators are trying to ban it. 🙄

Instead of banning this technology, the education industry should embrace it and adapt to the new reality of AI. After all, technology will evolve faster than teachers and educators anticipate, and students will always find new ways to incorporate the latest technologies.

The traditional method of teaching children in a classroom is no longer sufficient in today's world. It's time to change how and what we teach, unlock the full potential of technology in the classroom, and prepare our children for their digital future.
