This study investigated the effect of students’ use of AI in research through the lens of Practical Research teachers. In the Senior High School curriculum, they have PR1 (Qualitative Research) and PR2 (Quantitative Research), where students are expected to conduct and write research which they present and defend before a panel for feedback and corrections to improve the overall quality of the paper and make it more relevant and responsive. Through an interview, the participants shared how the topics of plagiarism and academic honesty are taught in class. They also shared how the responsible use of AI, most especially in research, is being emphasized. The pros and cons of students’ use of AI in their subject and the challenges that they face with the emergence of AI, specifically in research, were also identified. It was found that the most commonly used AI by students are those that help them paraphrase ideas that they want to cite in their papers. Writing ideas in their own words at times leads students to have a totally different context from the original idea that they want to use. Although no student admitted that they used AI to write their paper, the PR teachers were very honest in saying that they find it very difficult to verify whether the submissions that they are getting are written by AI or not. In response to the findings, policy recommendations were offered to serve as a guide or basis for the responsible use of AI in schools.
