Welcome to the Koanly's Artificial Intelligence blog! In the world of teaching, creativity plays an important role in inspiring and motivating students. Teachers are constantly looking for innovative ways to deliver lessons that awaken curiosity and encourage active learning.

In this article, we'll explore lThe best prompts for teachers through ChatGPT, we will discover the secrets behind the right prompts and we will present the 5 best to enhance teaching. Here we go!

Effective GPT Chat Prompts for Teachers: Tips

From challenging questions to interactive activities, effective prompts with GPT chat offer teachers a versatile tool to stimulate critical thinking, encourage active participation and personalize teaching according to the individual needs of students. Here are the best tips for create prompts that take full advantage of artificial intelligence capabilities:

  • Be explicit and precise.
  • Instructions for formatting answers.
  • Use different conversations when changing the subject.
  • Other tips to keep in mind.

Be explicit and precise

Providing examples and guiding ChatGPT in how to present the appropriate response is essential to ensure high-quality results and prevent unwanted interpretations.

Next, we compare a common prompt against a prompt applying this advice:

❌ Prompt without the advice applied:

Create a questionnaire on environmental sustainability for high school students.

✅ Prompt with the advice applied:

Are you a science teacher And you design a set of questions about environmental sustainability addressed to high school students. Include a case study that assesses your understanding of sustainable practices. It provides 5 options for each question, encouraging reflection and critical analysis. For example: Imagine an everyday situation related to the environment. Ask a question that evaluates knowledge about sustainable practices. The structure of the answers for each question should be: a) Option 1, b) Option 2, c) Option 3, d) Option 4, e) Option 5


Instructions for formatting answers.

If we are looking for specific answers and concrete results, it is useful to structure the information to make it easier to list, write or view it.

For example, if we want to obtain key information on trends in the use of renewable energy in Latin America and compare them with practices in the three world leading countries in this area, we could ask ChatGPT to carry out a comparative analysis. This would provide us with detailed results, such as the following:

❌ Prompt without the advice applied:

Give me the main differences between insights into the use of renewable energy in Latin America and the 3 leading countries in the world in this area.

✅ Prompt with the advice applied:

Show me, in a table, the main differences between insights into the use of renewable energy in Latin America and the 3 leading countries in the world in this area.

Answer from a fragment of the table:

Use different conversations when changing the subject.

In Chat GPT you can create as many conversations as you need and this is very useful. If you want the system to change its role, tone or talk about something different, start a new conversation, you must make it focus on a single topic and avoid sudden changes. Therefore, in the same conversation you can iterate over the initial instructions, ask me to make subtle changes or even to change the format of the response. But what you should not do is ask for something totally different, for this you must create a new conversation.

Other tips to keep in mind

In addition to considering the person, context and style, there are other things you can consider when generating prompts:

  • Language: Indicate the language in which you want the results to be generated.
  • Terminology: If you want me to use specific words within some specific terminology.
  • Bibliography: You can ask the AI to cite one or more sources where the information it's generating can be found.
  • Audience: Indicate the audience you are addressing, for example, “Act like a history teacher who teaches children from 11 to 12 years old”.
  • Limitations: It provides clear instructions on the limits of the results, such as the maximum number of words or prohibited words.

What are the 3 best prompts for teachers?
