We have already seen during the last weeks how it is possible to use ChatGPT in math class, or in school in general, but it is clear that there are some areas that can take advantage of this AI in a better way than others.

In physics, for example, we have seen that he makes grotesque errors in his calculations, and although he is good at creating problem statements, he is not so good at solving them. In mathematics he behaves well with basic calculations, but, what about studying history?

History teachers and students can use ChatGPT in several ways:

Generate review questions to help students prepare for tests and assessments

It does quite well here, as ChatGPT is very good at creating questions. We can even set up multiple choice exams marking the true answers.

An example of how a history teacher could use ChatGPT to generate review questions to help students prepare for tests and assessments is as follows:

– The teacher provides ChatGPT with a list of topics that will be covered on the exam, such as the French Revolution, the American War of Independence, and the Industrial Revolution.

– ChatGPT generates review questions for each topic, such as “Who was the leader of the French Revolution?” or “What events led to the American War of Independence?”

– The teacher reviews the questions generated by ChatGPT and uses them to create a review quiz for students.

– Students complete the review quiz before the exam, which helps them remember important topics and identify weak points in their understanding.

– The teacher can use the review questions generated by ChatGPT to create an assessment quiz, such as a midterm or final exam.

It is important to mention that the questions generated must be reviewed and supplemented with the necessary information to avoid confusion.

Create summaries and essays of important historical events to help students better understand the context

It does not usually make mistakes with dates, nor with important historical events, since most of the text used to train it has done it correctly. Those with false data have been eliminated over time.

An example of how a history teacher might use ChatGPT for this point:

– The teacher provides ChatGPT with a specific historical event for which they want to generate a summary or essay, such as the Battle of Waterloo.

– ChatGPT generates a detailed summary of the Battle of Waterloo, including the background, the sides involved, the leaders, the development of the battle and the final result.

– The teacher reviews the summary generated by ChatGPT and uses it as the basis for creating a lesson for students.

– Students read the summary and use the information to complete activities related to the Battle of Waterloo, such as analyzing maps or designing a role-playing game.

– The teacher can use the essay generated by ChatGPT as a writing activity for students. Students can use the essay as a guide to write their own essay on the Battle of Waterloo.

– The teacher can use the generated essay for students to make a comparison with other historical events.

Generate fictional dialogues between historical figures

This can help students better understand the motivations and actions of those characters. We only have to provide ChatGPT with a list of historical figures and a specific scenario, such as the meeting between Napoleon Bonaparte and the Emperor of Austria, Francis I, for example.

Once done, ChatGPT generates a fictional dialogue between Napoleon and Francis I in the specified setting, including details about their motivations, interests, and actions at that historical moment. The teacher reviews the dialogue generated by ChatGPT and uses it as the basis for a class reading and discussion activity.

Students read the dialogue and use the information to analyze the motivations and actions of historical figures, as well as discuss how that dialogue might have influenced later events.

The teacher can use the dialogue generated by ChatGPT as a writing activity for students. Students can use the dialogue as a guide to write their own fictional dialogue between historical figures, or even put on a little drama in class.

Create concept maps and diagrams

Ideal for helping students visualize relationships between historical events. An example of how a history teacher could use ChatGPT to generate concept maps and outlines to help students visualize relationships between historical events is as follows:

– The teacher provides ChatGPT with a specific historical event for which they want to generate a concept map or outline, such as World War II.

– ChatGPT generates a concept map or scheme that includes key events, characters, countries and causes of World War II, as well as relationships between them.

– The teacher reviews the conceptual map or scheme generated by ChatGPT and uses it as a basis for a class activity.

– Students use the concept map or outline generated by ChatGPT to identify patterns and relationships between historical events and discuss how those patterns and relationships might have influenced later events.

– The teacher can use the concept map or outline generated by ChatGPT as a writing activity for students. Students can use the concept map or outline as a guide to create their own concept map or outline about a different historical event.

Here is an example of a World War II concept map:

And here is an example schematic:

In addition to all these examples, it can be used to generate automatic responses to frequently asked questions from students on specific history topics, to create a richer and more detailed story about a particular historical event or historical figure, or even to create interactive educational games for students. help students learn in a fun and engaging way.

Imagination has no limits, and ChatGPT can be a great ally.
