A Student’s Guide to Using Artificial Intelligence Responsibly and Effectively

Unleashing the Power of Artificial Intelligence in Education: A Guide on Appropriate Use for Peru’s 6 Million Students.

In the 2024 school year, Peru saw over 6 million students returning to classrooms and resuming academic activities. With the increasing use of artificial intelligence (AI) in education, some students are utilizing technology to complete their tasks. However, it is essential to understand the proper use of AI tools to maximize their benefits.

To create a guide on the appropriate use of AI tools for students, we interviewed Liliana Muñoz Guevara, director of the Comprehensive Basic Training Unit at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, and Omar Florez, an AI scientist. Muñoz advised students to embrace new tools and use them wisely as AI can facilitate personalized learning and deepen understanding of complex topics.

There are various AI tools available to students that can aid in academic tasks. For example, ChatGPT is an AI chatbot that can provide answers to queries or even write essays. Perplexity is connected to the internet and provides accurate and up-to-date information on any topic. Wolfram Alpha is an online tool that solves mathematical queries quickly and efficiently.

When using AI chatbots, it is crucial to verify the original source of data to ensure accuracy. While AI can enhance academic performance in various areas like language learning or mathematics, it may be limited in disciplines requiring practical skills like science experiments or physical fitness training.

However, in creative fields like music or dance, generative AI tools can contribute significantly by generating new ideas or compositions. It is essential to consider ethical aspects when using AI in education and not lose sight of human interaction and guidance from teachers.

In conclusion, while there are limitations to using AI in education, if used correctly, it has immense potential to enhance academic performance and deepen understanding of complex topics.
