As innovative educators, we're always searching for impactful and fresh ways to engage students. The ChatGPT Curriculum Innovation Matrix stands out as an incredibly flexible tool in this pursuit.

Below, I will provide an example of how I used it to enhance my curriculum. By using the template, you can adapt it for your own use cases. Since it's applicable to any subject, feel free to share this prompt idea with your colleagues.

Understanding the Curriculum Innovation Matrix With ChatGPT

The Curriculum Innovation Matrix With ChatGPT is a framework that aligns different teaching methods along the X-axis with key curriculum topics along the Y-axis. This setup helps teachers systematically explore various combinations of content delivery and subject matter, ensuring a well-rounded educational experience.


ChatGPT Prompt (copy and fill in information in the curly brackets)

Act as a {subject name} curriculum expert and generate Grade {?} curriculum Content Ideas.

I want to build an engaging, creative, and student-led approach to delivering my content.

Tailor ideas to Grade {number}.

To generate ideas, I want you to use a "Content matrix" table. In this table, the X axis contains types of content delivery, meaning ways to deliver and present a topic. The Y axis contains content topics to be matched with the X axis.

Format the output in a table.


The X-axis has these content types, formatted like this: [NAME] (explanation on how to use it)

  1. [Interactive Game] (A game or activity that requires students to actively participate and engage with the content.)

  2. [Visual Storytelling] (Using visuals, like storyboards, comic strips, or animations to present information.)

  3. [Experiential] (Learning through direct experience or simulation of real-world scenarios.)

  4. [Peer Teaching] (Students teaching or explaining topics to each other.)

  5. [Tech Integration] (Utilising modern technology tools, apps, or platforms to deliver content.)


The Y axis contains 5 topics I teach:

  1. {topic 1}

  2. {topic 2}

  3. {topic 3}

  4. {topic 4}

  5. {topic 5}


Below you can see the results I got with the prompt to generate the content matrix for the Grade 6 Music curriculum.

As you can see, the ChatGPT Curriculum Innovation Matrix not only gives you a structured way to brainstorm innovative teaching methods but also allows you to easily tailor your curriculum to meet the needs and interests of your students.

If you're not satisfied with the output, you can always request further refinements. For instance, you can change any field of input on the X or Y axis and ask to regenerate the table accordingly. You can increase or decrease the number of inputs on the axis and compare the results. The opportunities for further editing to achieve remarkable results are left to your experimentation and curiosity.

The ChatGPT Curriculum Innovation Matrix exemplifies how the thoughtful integration of technology and creativity can transform traditional teaching methods. It not only encourages educators to think outside the box but also empowers students by making learning more interactive, enjoyable, and relevant to the digital age.
