As technology continues to advance, some students are turning to artificial intelligence (AI) tools to assist them in completing their tasks. However, it is essential to understand how to use AI tools correctly.

It is crucial to verify the original source of data when using AI chatbots to ensure the accuracy of information.

While AI can enhance academic performance in various areas such as music and dance through generative AI tools, it may be limited in disciplines requiring practical skills like engineering or medicine. However, it’s important not to lose sight of the human aspect of learning while using AI tools.

The ethical aspects of using AI in education must also be considered when using these tools. Teachers should guide their students on how to use these tools appropriately and ensure that they are not misusing them.
