Embracing Technology: The Proper Use of AI Tools in Education

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

As the 2024 school year began in Peru, over 6 million students returned 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.

To create a guide on the appropriate use of AI tools for students, we 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 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.
