Last year I created a ‘Little Book of Generative AI Prompts for Teachers‘. It was labour of love to create but has proven hugely popular. I’ve been promising for some time now to create an equivalent ‘Little Book’ with prompts in it for senior leaders… and here it is!!

It is important to recognise that even with these crafted prompts, iteration will be essential. You will need to check over the outputs and refine the output to the standard you want. Detailed contextual information is crucial to success.

Firstly, as discussed in the little book, AI comes with inherent biases. Things that might work well for one person, might not work so well for others. It is incumbent upon you to check the responses given. As I’ve regularly shared many times, the results that come from tools such as these are like every child in your classroom, you need to check its work.

Secondly, considering that these prompts are starters for ten, you should be prepared to iterate. You will likely need to converse with the Generative AI tool to get the desired results. Nothing these tools produce is intended to replace your autonomy and creativity, and they certainly won’t have the contextual knowledge you have of your school and setting.

My final piece of advise, as shared inside the little book; “Remember using some of the tools you might feel like you want to share personal data and you need to be clear on GDPR. Whichever tool you’re using will need to have been cleared by your DPO (Data Protection Officer) and had a DPIA The Little Book of Generative AI prompts for senior leaders(Data Protection Impact Assessment) completed before you should use it. You should also not upload confidential documents and absolutely consider ensuring you turn off the feature built into tools such as ChatGPT. Not sure how to do that? Check out this video on my YouTube.”


So here you go, here is my ‘Little Book of Generative AI Prompts for senior leaders‘. I hope you find it useful! Please let me know how you get on!

I should say here, please do peruse my blog. Whilst I don’t write on here as much as I used to, often writing for others, such as in this piece for BBC Teach and Microbit, there are lots of great resources here you can access for free, such as my ‘Use of AI in Education Policy (template)’.

FINALLY… if you like the work I do and think I can help you in your school, Trust or I might be helpful at your event, please do get in touch via my contact page.
