How to integrate AI into your teaching workflow

Use the website for ChatGPT, Claude or Gemini

You can use ChatGPT, Claude or Gemini directly through their websites. You’ll typically have to create an account and you’ll get instant access to a free version of one of their LLMs, but if you want a more advanced LLM, you’ll have to pay. For example, right now OpenAI offers GPT3.5 for free, but you can pay to upgrade to GPT4.

We’ve found this option is best for individuals who only need to use one platform and only need to use it by themselves.

If that’s you, then you can also use PromptDrive.ai as your prompt management tool. We have an unlimited free plan for individual users and a free chrome extension that will allow you to access your entire prompt library without the need to switch between tabs.

But if you want to save money, use different LLMs and collaborate on prompts and chat responses, then you might benefit from using PromptDrive.

Use PromptDrive.ai

PromptDrive.ai is a platform designed specifically for teams to collaborate on ChatGPT, Claude and Gemini prompts and workflows. It’s particularly useful for businesses or organizations where multiple team members need to work together on projects involving one or more LLMs.

An additional benefit is that you’ll be able to take advantage of AI for a fraction of the cost of using their native websites. You do need to add your own API keys, the process to get one is straightforward and we have guides to help you get started.

Final word

In conclusion, AI tools like ChatGPT, Claude, and Gemini offer a range of possibilities for teachers looking to streamline their workload and create more engaging learning experiences for their students. By using the prompts we’ve explored in this article, you can harness the power of these different LLMs to generate ideas, resources, and materials that would otherwise take hours to create from scratch.

However, it’s essential to remember that AI is not a replacement for your professional experience and input. While these tools can provide valuable assistance and inspiration, they cannot replace the human touch and expertise that you bring to the classroom. AI can help you work more efficiently, but it cannot replace the critical role you play in guiding and nurturing your students’ development.

As you begin to incorporate these prompts into your workflow, keep in mind that they are just a starting point. To get the most relevant and effective responses from AI, you’ll need to adapt, customize, and add more information based on your specific needs and context. Don’t be afraid to experiment, iterate, and refine your prompts over time to ensure that they align with your teaching goals and style.

By leveraging the power of AI while staying true to your professional judgment and expertise, you can unlock new possibilities for your teaching practice and create a more dynamic, personalized, and effective learning environment for your students.
