- Using AI Tools to Facilitate Better Teaching and Learning
December 19, 2023
ChatGPT—one of the most valuable technology tools for teachers and learners—became widely available in the fall of 2022.

Because AI tools are changing how we work and learn, classroom teachers must reflect on their potential and understand their limitations.
