In this segment of “Psych Behind the Headlines,” host Patricia Wu and guest therapist Ryan Heapy discuss about the latest research on AI tools like ChatGPT and how they might be affecting students. A new study suggests that these tools could be linked to procrastination, memory problems, and even worse grades.

AI and Procrastination

When AI can generate answers and essays in seconds, students may feel less pressure to start their work early. This can lead to procrastination, making it harder to complete assignments well and creating unnecessary stress.

Our brains learn best through active effort.When AI does all the thinking for us, we might not remember the information as well.

The Importance of a Balanced Approach

AI is a powerful resource, but it’s not a replacement for genuine learning. The key is to use AI as a tool, not a crutch, for academic success.
