Redesigning Teaching with AI and GPT
In my last post, I discussed the potential applications of AI and GPT in education, as well as the benefits and challenges of using these technologies in the classroom.
In this post, I focus on how AI and GPT can be used to redesign teaching practices, and explore examples of how these technologies are currently being used to personalise learning, provide feedback, and enhance student engagement.
Also, if you haven’t seen it yet, check out my video introducing Chat GPT-3 or my post explaining what’s going on the video.
Overview of Different Ways AI and GPT Can Redesign Teaching
AI and GPT can be used to redesign teaching in a variety of ways, from providing personalised learning experiences to automating assessment and feedback.
Here are some examples of how AI and GPT-3 can be used to enhance teaching practices:
- Personalised Learning: AI and GPT can help teachers personalise learning experiences for individual students by analysing student data and providing targeted recommendations for instruction and practice.
- Automated Assessment and Feedback: AI and GPT can automate the assessment and feedback process, freeing up teachers to focus on more complex tasks such as lesson planning and curriculum development.
- Student Engagement: AI and GPT can help increase student engagement by providing interactive learning experiences, such as chatbots and simulations, that allow students to explore concepts in a more immersive and interactive way.
Examples of How AI and GPT Can Redesign Teaching
Here are some examples of how AI and GPT are currently being used to redesign teaching practices:
- Adaptive Learning: Adaptive learning platforms use AI algorithms to analyse student data and provide personalised recommendations for instruction and practice. For example, Carnegie Learning’s math curriculum uses AI to provide personalised feedback and recommendations for students.
- Automated Assessment and Feedback: AI-powered tools such as Gradescope and Turnitin use machine learning algorithms to automate the assessment and feedback process, saving teachers time and improving the accuracy of feedback.
- Chatbots and Virtual Assistants: Chatbots and virtual assistants can provide students with personalised support and guidance, answering questions and providing feedback in real time. For example, the Georgia State University chatbot helps students navigate university resources and access support services.
Incorporating AI and GPT in Teaching Practice
To incorporate AI and GPT in teaching practice, it’s important to consider the unique needs and learning styles of your students, as well as the potential benefits and challenges of using these technologies. Here are some best practices for integrating AI and GPT-3 in classroom teaching and instructional design:
- Start Small: Begin by experimenting with a single AI or GPT-3 tool or application, and gradually expand to more complex or integrated approaches as you become more comfortable with these technologies.
- Encourage Exploration: Encourage students to explore and tinker with AI and GPT-3 tools and applications, allowing them to develop their own understanding of how these technologies work and how they can be used to support learning.
- Monitor Impact: Monitor the impact of AI and GPT-3 on student learning and engagement, gathering feedback and data on student performance and using this information to refine and adapt your teaching practices.
As well as teaching with AI and GPT, what else can I use them for?
AI and GPT have the potential to transform teaching practices and personalise learning experiences for individual students.
By incorporating these technologies into classroom teaching and instructional design, we can create more engaging, dynamic, and effective learning experiences for students of all ages and abilities. But as well as teaching with AI and GPT, there are other things you can use them for as well as

Using AI to create images for your resources
I’ll address this in another post, but one of the other things you can do is use AI to generate the images that you need for your resources. These tools are called Generative AI and I’ll address them in a future post. For examples, have a look at the images I’ve used in this post.
