Artificial intelligence in language learning platforms is revolutionizing the field of language teaching in unprecedented ways, offering new opportunities and tools which are revolutionizing the educational experience. In recent years, the launch of innovative technologies, such as Siri, Alexa or ChatGPT, has sparked a great deal of interest and placed artificial intelligence in the spotlight. Although this technology has been with us for years, its impact and reach have been highlighted by the advances seen in AI, with its ability to understand, interact and provide accurate feedback to students in real time.
Those teachers committed to excellence in language teaching must be aware of these innovations and take advantage of their full potential to boost their students’ learning process. In this article, we will explore how artificial intelligence in language learning platforms is being used in Learning Management Systems (LMS) and how it can be effectively integrated into daily teaching methodologies to enrich pedagogical practices (thus improving educational outcomes).
Are you ready to adapt to this new era in education?
According to UNESCO, the use of artificial intelligence in the field of education is “essential to accelerate the achievement of SDG 4”.
The UN’s Sustainable development goal number 4 focuses on “ensuring inclusive, equitable and quality education, and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all”.
“UNESCO is determined to help Member States to harness the potential of AI technologies with a view to achieving the Education 2030 Agenda, while ensuring that the use of AI technologies in the educational context is governed by the fundamental principles of inclusion and equity.”
In relation to the above, the Beijing Consensus recommended a series of strategies on AI in education that we value at Dexway:
- Management and implementation in education
- The empowerment of teachers and their teaching
- Learning and the evaluation of results
Artificial intelligence in language learning platforms
The application of AI to the educational environment is a reality whose growth expected to be exponential in the coming years. However, various concrete applications of this technology have already been implemented in language teaching.
AI for learning personalization
This technology has opened up new possibilities for personalizing teaching on language learning platforms. With advanced algorithms, it’s easier than ever to adapt to the needs of teachers and students in a more individualized way.
From the perspective of teachers, it is beginning to be used in the design of customized study plans that adapt to specific objectives. AI can analyze the progress and performance of each student, identify areas for improvement and provide individualized feedback. This allows it to provide more student-centered teaching, attending to each individual need, therefore promoting more effective learning.
Self-assessment or automatic evaluation tools offer real-time feedback.
Students’ responses are analyzed instantly, providing immediate insight into their mistakes, areas for improvement, and achievements. In Dexway level tests, powered by AI, the result is available in seconds, eliminating tedious corrections that only waste time.
Our Level Tests are aligned with the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and assess the ability of your students in the 4 main skills: writing, speaking, listening and reading. There are four types of tests available to choose from, depending on your needs, lasting from 30 to 45 minutes.
Selection and recommendation of educational materials
In traditional teaching, educators cannot act on the deficiencies of the group, or of each student, until the lesson is over. And always after having subjected them to an exam that takes days to correct. In fact, when the marks arrive, the class or student has gone on to another topic. This implies that it is easy for students to carry knowledge deficiencies from one topic to another. When using artificial intelligence, the educational platform evaluates the student’s daily performance and provides personalized exercise recommendations for weak areas. This means that fundamental problems are identified and the group can achieve a more homogenous level, without anyone being left behind.
In conclusion, the use of artificial intelligence in language learning platforms has proven to be a very useful tool that is transforming the way students learn and master new languages. Personalized learning, automated feedback and tailored resources are just a few of the ways AI is powering language teaching, both online in person. Language educators can take advantage of these innovations to provide a more effective, interactive, and personalized educational experience for their students.
As technology continues to advance, it is exciting to imagine the future possibilities that artificial intelligence can offer in the realm of language education, opening new horizons for intercultural learning and communication. And at Dexway, always at the forefront of innovation, we will continue to offer the latest educational solutions on our e-learning platforms and in our content.
