In this day and age, education is more exciting than ever before. Thanks to the development of large language models like Bard and ChatGPT, students have access to a wealth of information and resources that were never before available. These tools can be used to help students with their schoolwork, learn new things, and even have fun!

Here are some examples of how students can use Bard and ChatGPT:

  • For schoolwork: Bard and ChatGPT can be used to help students with their homework, research projects, and essays. They can answer questions, provide summaries of complex topics, and even generate creative text formats, like poems, code, scripts, musical pieces, email, letters, etc.
  • To learn new things: Bard and ChatGPT can be used to learn about new topics, expand knowledge, and even practice for tests. They can access and process information from the real world through Google Search and keep their response consistent with search results.
  • To have fun: Bard and ChatGPT can be used to play games, tell stories, and even have conversations. They can be a great way to relax and de-stress after a long day of school.
