Ethic wars: student and educator attitudes in the context of ChatGPT




ChatGPT, Education, Ethics, Large language models


Technologists and educators have been both fascinated and frightened since the publication of ChatGPT. ChatGPT has both supporters and detractors, but it is informative for individuals in the education community to look at the educational research on AI in education in order to gain understanding and establish objective judgments about the importance of ChatGPT in education. In this paper, we first present the journey of OpenAI GPT models, then give the implications of ChatGPT for education. Then, we list works for detection ChatGPT based texts and other precautions. Finally, an example of an exam with ChatGPT answers is given.
