In education today, one of the pressing challenges is how students use AI in their classes. Based on my experience, I noticed that students often turn to AI such as ChatGPT for quick answers to questions and, unfortunately, even for cheating. While AI offers great benefits in terms of accessibility and efficiency, educators are very skeptical about integrating it into biology education for very valid reasons. Educators fear that students are becoming too reliant on AI and that they may become passive recipients of information instead of actively seeking knowledge. This undermines the very essence of education, which is to foster curiosity, inquiry, and independent thinking. Additionally, information provided by AI is not always guaranteed to be correct. Especially in my field, biology, AI-generated information may lack accuracy at times. If students solely rely on AI, without checking the facts, it can negatively impact biology education. Blind trust in AI could lead to misconceptions or misinterpreted understandings of biological concepts, which may lead to misinformation. Personally, I see this as a challenge because, contrary to what others usually think, biology is not just about memorizing facts but rather nurturing scientific literacy, critical thinking, and promoting a deep understanding of the natural world. Integrating AI in biology education should aim to complement traditional teaching methods while ensuring that the information presented is accurate and reliable.
