ChatGPT and other generative AI technologies have been dominating adult conversations around education, yet there has been far less attention given to how children are reacting to and using the new technology.

Jason C. Yip, an associate professor at the University of Washington who specializes in learning sciences and child-computer interaction, is currently studying the ways children interact with ChatGPT and other generative AI in a safe environment at his research lab.

“We’ve been thinking a lot about ways that children conceptualize GPT language learning models–what do they think about it? What are the ways they like it or dislike it?” Yip says.  By May 30, 2023
