Letters to the Editor: AI Chatbots and ChatGPT: tool or crutch for students?

Dear Editor,

I think that artificial intelligence websites like AI chatbots and ChatGPT are tools. Although many kids use the bots for cheating, it is very helpful for college essays, punctuation, and hard vocabulary. I have heard many kids tell me about using ChatGPT to outline their college essays, and it worked. All 4 got into their #1 college. In my opinion, AI and ChatGPT get too much hate for the bad stuff, but never any appreciation for the good.

Dear Editor,

I agree with the prompt. I think that ChatGPT has become a main source and way of cheating for many students nationwide. The first time I ever heard of AI was from a student who told me how they used it for an essay and yet still got an A. In the first paragraph, when Weber State University Professor Alex Lawrence said, “This is the greatest cheating tool ever invented,” I could not agree more because so many students have learned to work their teachers ragged rather than their subjects. Finally, as technology continues to improve and AI gets to know human patterns more and more, there is no say that eventually, we won’t be able to tell between AI and human-generated responses.

Dear Editor,

I agree with your claim. While ChatGPT can be useful, it should not be allowed in school because using it to write an essay or do your homework is cheating. If students get used to not doing their own work, they won’t be self-reliant later in life. Although I have never used ChatGPT, I don’t think it’s a positive app/website. The use of AI will eventually consume us if we keep relying on it so much, and then humans won’t be able to think for themselves. In conclusion, AI can be a helpful tool, but it definitely should not be used in schools.

Dear Editor,

I 100 percent agree with what you stated in this editorial. I have personally used an AI tool on an essay because I was too lazy and it hurt me in the long run. While I still think that it’s okay to use it to summarize and brainstorm it is not okay to copy and paste what the bot says. Like you said, it provokes laziness and hinders learning abilities.
