Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The recent introduction of the artificial intelligence language model, ChatGPT, has led to its initial capabilities garnering major attention in educational enterprises. In some ways, the development of ChatGPT can be seen as similar to the invention of the typewriter and the microcomputer, as it represents a significant technological advancement that has the potential to transform the way we work, study, educate, and communicate. While there are potential benefits, risks and challenges must be explored. If the technology is not properly harnessed and adequately embraced, negative consequences may occur. Ethical issues and misuse could overshadow successful applications. Despite its infancy, scholars and educators have been actively observing and closely watching the phenomenon.

The objective of this Special Issue is to provide a current overview of the significant impact of ChatGPT as a tool for teaching and learning and explore the opportunities it presents for educators and students to expand their cognitive abilities.

Suggested themes include:

  • Potentials of ChatGPT;
  • Ethical issues and misuse of ChatGPT;
  • Co-existing with ChatGPT.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Using ChatGPT in teaching and learning;
  • Implications for teachers;
  • How ChatGPT will change the educational landscape;
  • Adaptations to the use of ChatGPT;
  • Ethical issues and misuse;
  • Transforming education with ChatGPT;
  • Affordances of ChatGPT;
  • Immersive learning with ChatGPT;
  • Promises and perils of ChatGPT;
  • Students’ perspectives of ChatGPT;
  • Teachers’ perspectives of ChatGPT;
  • ChatGPT and assessment. 

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
