Title : Artificial Intelligence in CALL: Now and / or coming soon to a school near you!
Type : Keynote (50 minutes)
Category : Keynote speech
Abstract : An ever-increasing number of software apps involve the use of artificial intelligence. These include bi-directional video technologies which enable learners to engage in two-way conversations with onscreen characters who can then react and respond to a learner’s replies and gestures. Other apps can detect when a learner is bored and provide more engaging content for that student. Still other apps can provide words correctly pronounced in the student’s own synthesized voice. And these are just a few! The goal of this talk is to provide an overview and critical analysis of emerging technologies relevant to CALL and promote reflection on the nature of meaningful uses of artificial intelligence in language learning. Through a variety of short video illustrations, this talk will provide a glimpse of some intriguing tools and apps. The hope is that participants will have a better sense of technology they may wish to use and where to find some of the free and lower-cost applications.
