We were pleased to be invited to give the plenary session at the Oman Ministry of Education Dhakiliya Governorate's 2023 Symposium for English Teachers. It was a great day of sharing ideas with fellow teachers and seeing what our colleagues in K-12 education have been doing with AI in their classrooms.
For the 2023 International Day of Action Against Contract Cheating, supported by Majan University College.
Your AI Toolbox: Apps & more
At this point, major AI chatbots all work with images, audio, documents, and web search. They are much more than text generators.
There are tools that will create leveled texts, questions (from texts, video, websites, or pdfs), whole lesson plans, activities, etc.
Create a slide deck, from design and layout to content including text and images.
Create images of anything you can imagine. Support your materials with a creative touch. ChatGPT and Bing Chat do this natively (ChatGPT paid version).
Create realistic sounding speech from text, get live transcripts, and even generate that text for the audio. Making listening activities has never been so easy.
There are a few free conversation practice apps out there, but most are either paid or not very good quality. In addition to specific speaking practice apps, the big chatbots can also work this way surprisingly well. ChatGPT has new speech capabilities available on free accounts.
