The development of ChatGpt, a large language model developed by OpenAI, has sparked a
debate about the role of artificial intelligence in education. Many college and university students
have been found using ChatGPT for their college and University works .In "If ChatGPT can do
our homework, AI isn't the problem" Christopher Lidard (2023) argues that while some see
ChatGPT as a threat to the college essay and others see it as a tool for streamlining education, the
reality lies somewhere in between.
Lidard (2023) argues that ChatGPT's limitations prevent it
from completely replacing the college essay or making significant changes in education.
Although Lidard recognizes the importance and potential impact of AI, his reasoning fails to
address the ethical issues that arise from its implementation in educational activities.
The use of ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence language model developed by OpenAI, has
sparked discussions on the future of traditional essay writing in education. However, it has
significant limitations and should not replace critical thinking or original writing. Instead,
educators should use ChatGPT to question the value of assignments that merely ask students to
produce coherent text instead of coherent ideas. Homework should challenge students to extend
core concepts, generate original arguments, and think critically. While ChatGPT may help find
content or ideas, any text produced by it should be thoroughly checked for accuracy and
precision before submission as student work. Ultimately, ChatGPT is a tool to aid the writing
process, not replace essential skills in education.
The use of ChatGPT may lead to lack of critical thinking skills. Lidard's article emphasizes the
benefits of using AI to automate administrative tasks and personalize learning experiences for
