Abstract

Instructional design’s origins lie in the philosophies of American educators like Dewey and Bloom, arranging education coherently with learner traits and standards. ChatGPT, an AI tool by OpenAI, employs neural networks for text processing and human-like interactions. Its potential in education, especially in generating materials, captivates educators. This study explores if ChatGPT can replace human teachers in creating lesson plans. Classes from 8th-grade math and 9th-grade English were used, with human teachers and ChatGPT 3.5, 4.0 designing five plans each. Evaluation followed China’s Youth Teachers’ Competition and plan guidelines, assessing objectives, content, process, methods, and innovation. 10 experts, English and math, anonymously rated plans using a scale, yielding insights.
