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

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

To create a guide on the appropriate use of AI tools for students, Trade interviewed Liliana Muñoz Guevara, director of the Comprehensive Basic Training Unit at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, and Omar Florez, an AI scientist. Muñoz advises students not to 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. Perplexity is connected to the internet and provides accurate and up-to-date information. Wolfram Alpha is an online tool for solving mathematical queries.

When using AI chatbots, it is crucial to verify the original source of data to ensure the accuracy of information. While AI can enhance academic performance in various areas such as language learning and research assistance, it may be limited in disciplines requiring practical skills.

However, in areas like music and dance, generative AI tools can contribute to creative processes. It is essential to consider ethical aspects when using AI in education and not lose sight of the human aspect of learning.

In conclusion, while AI can be a valuable tool for student learning, it is crucial to use it appropriately and ethically. By following these guidelines provided by experts in the field of education and technology, students can maximize their potential while still maintaining a balanced approach towards learning that includes peer interaction and teacher guidance.
