A big talking point among our student population this week is that OpenAI have just made their most powerful model, GPT-4, available to all users, and not just those with paid subscriptions. As the latest iteration from OpenAI, GPT-4 offers enhanced capabilities in understanding and generating human-like text, making it a powerful tool for a wide range of applications. For parents and educators, the implications of GPT-4 are profound, as it can assist in creating more personalised and engaging learning experiences for students.

With its ability to process and analyse large volumes of information, GPT-4 can support educational software that helps students with writing, research, and even complex problem-solving tasks. As we integrate such technologies into educational settings, it’s essential to maintain an open dialogue about the ethical use of AI and ensure that it serves as a complement to, rather than a replacement for, the irreplaceable human touch in education.
