Think about this. Do you ever feel unhappy after reading a text? Yes? Of course. We all do. What’s wrong then, with that text? Too long, incomprehensible, tiresome, irritating…
How to work with the text strategy tool, TPF?
Why text strategy? A strong, effective text is a consistent body, a piece of art: all the parts of the text are in harmony with each other. To achieve that, use the TPF to weigh the elements carefully before you start writing. That’s the essence of text strategy: first think, then write.
The tool TPF and ChatGPT
Whether you create a text yourself or outsource that task to an outside writer (ChatGPT, for example) depends on the situation. By using the TPF tool for text preparation, you force yourself to make your own choices.
The choices in text preparation form the input, the “invisible inside” of the final product (a text). These choices provide a valuable “prompt” for a chat robot. This is how we create meaningful and acceptable use of AI in education and our daily work.
