Becoming a better learner with AI and ChatGPT:
The famous educationist Benjamin Bloom published a research paper in 1984 titled the 2 sigma problem …..(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloom’s_2_sigma_problem?wprov=sfti1)
and drew attention to the need to “find methods of group instruction as effective as one-to-one tutoring”. Now almost 40 years later, the problem has been solved. And the solution is both with a teacher who uses AI and chatGPT to adopts the approach of ‘ Mastery Learning’ and ‘ personalisation’ or even the self-directed learner who adopts the same principles.
