Palabras clave:

At the present time, artificial intelligence (AI) has become a reality; it is no longer something to be dreamt of, but instead something to be used in our daily life. AI, more specifically, ChatGPT can be used by teachers and students to improve their learning, and the different processes that this conveys. The objective of this investigation was to design strategies based on ChatGPT to improve senior high school students’ English language reading and writing skills in Esmeraldas, 2023. The investigation followed a mixed approach, with the methods of analysis and synthesis, hermeneutics, descriptive statistics, inductive, and deductive. The scope of this research was descriptive, and the design was nonexperimental. The Population of Study was formed by 60 English teachers from different schools in Esmeraldas, either private or public. The main results showed that 70,50% of teachers had very many difficulties in class when developing reading and writing skills; the 84,7% showed marked interest in using ChatGPT for teaching; the main contents considered to include in strategies were how to express critical opinions, and organizing ideas, among others. The main themes diagnosed were free time activities and environment, together with short stories, and personal reflections. This diagnosis permitted the design of didactic strategies whose main stages were Preparation, Immersion Activities, and Free Language Use, with their corresponding objectives, procedures, and activities.
