Becoming a better learner with AI and chatGPT

Becoming a better learner with AI and ChatGPT: 

The famous educationist Benjamin Bloom published a research paper in 1984 titled the 2 sigma problem …..(’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.

This WhatsApp delivered set of 4 weekend modules is designed to provide guidance for every learner to become a better learner by moving through the stages of awareness, familiarity, proficient to fluency.

This will be offered for the first time in June 2023 and then every month thereafter.
