Mar 26, 2024

The 2024 school year in Peru began with over 6 million students returning to classrooms, marking the start of academic activities. With the rise of artificial intelligence, some students are turning to technology to complete their tasks. However, it is important to understand the correct use of AI tools.

Trade interviewed Liliana Muñoz Guevara, director of the Comprehensive Basic Training Unit at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, and Omar Florez, an AI scientist, to create a guide on the appropriate use of AI tools for students. Muñoz advises students to not be afraid to use new tools and to use them wisely, as AI can facilitate personalized learning and deeper exploration of complex topics.

There are various AI tools available to students, such as ChatGPT, Perplexity, and Wolfram Alpha, which can aid in academic tasks. Perplexity is connected to the internet and provides accurate and up-to-date information, while Wolfram Alpha is an online tool for solving mathematical queries. It is important to verify the original source of data when using AI chatbots to ensure the accuracy of information.

AI can enhance academic performance in various areas, but it may be limited in disciplines requiring practical skills. However, in areas like music and dance, AI can contribute to creative processes through generative AI tools. It is crucial to consider ethical aspects when using AI in education and not lose sight of the human aspect of learning, such as peer interaction and teacher guidance.
