AI changes education for the better

Opinions on AI’s effects on people
Emma Carbajal

 As of 2023, artificial intelligence is starting to be used often by students. AI’s purpose is to be used as a helpful tool, mainly targeted to adolescents. With this new tool available to students, they are able to have additional help with their classwork such as finding ways to start essays, used as a source for english papers, etc. Although AI has its many benefits, teachers are starting to notice AI being misused by students. Even if some students decide to misuse AI, it doesn’t still mean that AI is all that bad. 

     “AI is a powerful educational tool when used properly. You can ask it questions like a study partner to help you prepare for tests. It can help you brainstorm ideas for essays and experiments.” says Joshua Bacon, a World Literature teacher at Sanger High School. 

     As said before, AI is a useful tool that students have access to which can help them with their schoolwork.  Although using AI could help and be used as a powerful learning tool, some other people have different opinions on it. 

     “I believe that AI is affecting the students learning because with the AI features students might take the opportunity of the AI and use it to cheat on any exams or assignments.” says 9th grade student, Jennifer Corona.

     Everyone has their own personal opinion on the effects AI has with the education system right now, but I personally believe that AI’s overall effects are good overall to our education system, especially to English students with their writing assignments. Just because some students decide to take advantage of AI’s help, it doesn’t mean that it is the AI’s fault. 

       “At the current state of AI I think its effects won’t be terribly harmful, but once it becomes more advanced I think it’s going to be more harmful. I think the line that separates reality and fantasy will become blurred.” says English 9 teacher, Jesus Zamarripa.

     “At the moment I’m not too sure how much AI is affecting student learning. I believe the effects of AI will be more visible in the upcoming years,” added Zamarripa.

     AI is still progressing and improving every day. As Zamarripa explained, AI still has a chance to be harmful in the future, but as of now it is used as a good tool and still has more positive effects than negative. AI is a good educational tool that can be used by all students. AI is a good tool because of the help it provides to the students. It helps English students start paragraphs and essays. AI also helps students with writer’s block, AI is a really good writing tool that helps give students a push on their writing assignments. Overall, I believe AI is a really good educational tool, the only thing that makes AI appear negative is the people that misuse it.
