2018 has been a year full of innovative ideas brought to us by EdTech startups: virtual reality adventures, DIY drones and karaoke audiobooks have popped up on the scene, promising to transform the way we learn.
The Automated Language Teaching and Assessment Institute (ALTA) at the University of Cambridge has recently announced the first summer school in Machine Learning for Digital English Language Teaching, to be held 3-7 July 2017, in Chania, Crete. We think it’s going to be a fascinating event – we’ll be there and will be sharing the outcomes on ELTjam. In meantime, we asked Diane NIcholls to tell us some more about the event.
Following Tim’s recent post on bots and their potential application in ELT, and after our own foray into the world of bots with our Ame product, we decided it was time to do another ELTjam review, this time of the recently launched Duolingo Language Bots.
