WORKBOOK: AI for School Website Managers
One of the first steps in effective school website management is understanding your local community. ChatGPT can provide insights based on local demographics and socio-economic data. For example, you can use the following prompt:
"As the headteacher of [school name] in [town/city/country], please provide me with the top 5 concerns and desires that parents have when choosing a high school for their children transitioning from primary school."
The AI will generate a list of concerns and desires, such as academic excellence, safety, and affordability, tailored to your local context.
Once you have insights into your community, you can ask ChatGPT to draft a headteacher's welcome page that addresses these points. For instance:
"Based on the top 5 concerns and desires of parents, please draft the copy for a headteacher's welcome page."
The AI will produce a draft that you can fine-tune to meet the specific needs of your audience.
ChatGPT can also help you write fully formed blog posts that are more engaging than what we often see on school websites. You can use a prompt like:
"Based on the brief information I will provide, please draft a compelling blog post that encourages parents to engage with [Topic of the Blog Post]."
For example, if you're promoting an event like The Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel, the AI can draft a blog post that not only informs but also engages your community.
AI for school website managers is not just a trend; it's a practical tool that can significantly ease your workload. If you're ready to take your school website to the next level, consider integrating ChatGPT into your workflow.
