Schools ban ChatGPT AI tool, afraid students will cheat, plagiarize

  • Some of the nation’s largest school districts are banning San Francisco-based OpenAI’s new ChatGPT tool on school networks and devices.
  • Education technology experts are urging schools to train teachers and students about how to use ChatGPT and artificial intelligence instead of banning it outright.
  • OpenAI told USA TODAY it is working to create a way for teachers to catch students who are using the text generator to answer questions on tests or assignments.

Since ChatGPT debuted in November, the nation’s largest school districts have banned the artificial intelligence chatbot, concerned students will use the speedy text generator to cheat or plagiarize. 

Teachers and professors are concerned the technology makes it far too easy for students to use it as a shortcut for essays or other writing assignments and exams and that it generates content in a way that can bypass software that detects when students use information that’s not their own work. 

Jumping to ban the tool may not be the right course of action, however, education technology experts say: Because AI will be a part of young people’s future, it must also be a part of the classroom now.
