Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Language Teaching: Challenges and Possibilities

More than one week

Course details

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not a newcomer in the field of education, but it is set to change the rules of the game in many ways. Language Teaching is, among others, one of the fields in which AI promises to most profoundly affect the way we learn and teach. AI can offer personalized learning experiences; it can enhance language assessment with automated grading and feedback and facilitate immersive language practice through chatbots and language processing tools. 

AI-powered platforms can also analyse student data to tailor lesson plans, making language learning more effective and engaging. Additionally, AI can break down language barriers thorough multiple methods, making language education more accessible to a global audience. Therefore, in this course we will explore and acquire the basic knowledge about what AI is and what it can offer in Language Teaching.

The course is offered by the European School Education Platform. To find more courses from the European School Education Platform visit the Professional Development section of the European School Education Platform
