As technology continues to advance, educators are exploring new ways to engage students and enhance their learning experience. One such tool that has gained attention is artificial intelligence, specifically GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) models. While concerns about plagiarism and ownership of work exist, with proper restrictions and guidance, GPT can be a valuable asset in academia. In this blog post, we will explore prompt ideas that demonstrate how GPT can be utilized effectively for educational purposes.

My Prompt Ideas:

  • Task Generator to learn new tooling
  • You’re a college ICT professor specializing in Infrastructure, and cloud computing. Write a simple AWS task that would best introduce students to AWS. Use only AWS tooling, and keep it simple and affordable. Answer with a numbered list for steps, and code blocks where needed and provide a detailed response.
  • Document templates
  • Could you generate a [12th Grade level] research paper template? This document must follow the APA citation standard.  
  • Portfolio templates
  • Could you generate a portfolio template for my school project? The portfolio is for my [History] project. I need to document both my work, and my personal reflections. 
  • Email templates
  • I need to send a [Professional] email to my [Boss], [Mr. E]. Write for me a template that lets him know that I’m working on the ChatGPT prompt for education, and that progress is going steady.
    • Proofread for grammatical errors. (IMPORTANT TO MAKE A NEW CHAT FOR THIS)
  • Check the following paragraphs for grammatical errors for the [English Language]. Only provide a comparison between each of grammatically incorrect sentences, if any.
  • Proofread for factual inconsistencies. 
  • Find, if any, the factual inconsistencies of the following paragraph.
        • Seems potentially useful for story writing.
  • Rephrase suggestions. 
  • Edit the following passage and improve its overall clarity and coherence

[paste sentence]

  • Survey Questions
  • I need to conduct user testing for my VR application. Could you provide for me some example questions that I could possibly ask them? 
  • Agenda 

Generate for me a text based table for keeping track of the week.

  • Quiz Generation:

As quizGPT, you are a highly skilled and experienced tutor and teacher with an extensive knowledge of how to create amazing quizzes, tests, and more. When this prompt is used, you will ask the user for their education level to ensure that the quiz or test is tailored to their proficiency. You will use proper vocabulary and grammar in crafting the quiz or test to ensure that it is perfect for their level.

To create a quiz, use the command “/quiz”. When this command is used, prompt the user for data that they would like to be included in the quiz. Remember to only use the data provided by the user and do not make an answer key unless the user uses the command “/answer”. Additionally, do not forget that this is a quiz and not a test, so do not ask for any short or long answer responses.

To create a test, use the command “/test”. When this command is used, prompt the user for data that they would like to be included in the test, again remembering to only use the data provided by the user. Unlike a quiz, a test may include short or long answer responses. However, if the user uses the command “/multiple choice test”, then only use multiple choice questions and answers. Again, do not make an answer key unless the user uses the command “/answer”.

Always carefully review the data provided by the user each time a command is used to ensure that you only use the data they provided. Make sure to use your talent and extensive knowledge to create the best possible quiz or test for the user.

To get started, simply prompt the user with a greeting and tell them about the available command options. Remember to ask the user for their education level before creating a quiz or test.

  • Source and citations gathering for research
  • I want you to act as an academician. You will be responsible for researching a topic of your choice and presenting the findings in a paper or article form. Your task is to identify reliable sources, organize the material in a well-structured way and document it accurately with citations. My first suggestion request is “I need help writing an article on modern trends in renewable energy generation targeting college students aged 18-25.”

Prompt Ideas worth considering from “60+ must try prompts for teachers, by Monica Burns”

  • Explain [TOPIC] so it easy for [GRADE LEVEL] to understand
  • Scramble the letters in the following words [Apple, Dog, Orange, Cat, Absolute, Confidently]
  • Can you suggest some tools or resources to help me create interactive presentations for my students?
  • Recommend [GENRE] books about [TOPIC] for [GRADE LEVEL]
  • Write a catchy and informative title for a video about [TOPIC]
    • This doesn’t even need to be about a video. Coming up with names for groups, group projects, or anything can be quite challenging.
  • Summarize my notes from a meeting on [TOPIC] [PASTE YOUR NOTES]
      • Summarize my notes from the following meeting:
  • Organize this information into bullet points [PASTE YOUR INFORMATION]
  • Shorten this text to [NUMBER] [WORDS/CHARACTERS] 

Prompt ideas from: A Teacher’s Prompt Guide to ChatGPT by @herfeducator

  • I’m trying to improve my understanding of [TOPIC]. Develop a creative choose-your-own adventure story and keep asking me to choose an option before moving on to the next part of the story. The options should test my understanding of the topic. If I choose correctly then proceed to the next part of the story. ”
    • I like this one a lot. For my topic I put in Docker, and not only did it simulate me creating an image, and hosting it but it dived deeper into understanding how I could optimize the process if problems came up.

Prompt Suggestions from:

  • Generate [x] different ideas for [items]. To be specific, avoid general topics and focus on more specific subjects people will like to learn more.
  • I’m preparing for a job interview with [company] as a [position]. Can you give me some interview questions ?
    • I believe this could also be useful to simulate post-presentation questions.

Prompt Suggestions from Tooltinker:

  • Can you recommend some useful resources for learning [TOPIC]?
  • How can teachers use data to inform their teaching practices and make data-driven decisions about student learning, and what are some tools and techniques for collecting and analyzing data effectively?

For Fun:

    • Ascii Art Generator
  • I want you to act as an ascii artist. I will write the objects to you and I will ask you to write that object as ascii code in the code block. Write only ascii code. Do not explain about the object you wrote. I will say the objects in double quotes. My first object is “cat”


With the right approach and careful implementation, GPT can become a valuable tool in education. By utilizing prompts effectively, teachers can enhance student learning experiences and streamline various tasks such as creating documents, communicating professionally, conducting surveys, and more. Let’s embrace the potential of AI and leverage it to make education more engaging and effective.

Remember, education is a dynamic field, and it’s important to stay informed about the latest developments and research in order to continuously improve teaching practices. Keep exploring new prompt ideas and discover innovative ways to incorporate technology into the classroom.
