AI Tools for Inclusion & Multilingual Learners

Some AI tools have potential to save teachers a lot of time in supporting their learners, through making content more accessible and working across languages.

Some affordances of new AI tools in the multilingual classroom can include:

  • Access to technical language
  • Pre-teaching vocabulary
  • Adaptive resourcing and translation in response to students’ needs or interests
  • Comprehensible input through making complex texts accessible
  • AI-mediated translanguaging
  • Active outputs and feedback using AI-enhanced tools
  • Making connections to cultural or personal issues of significance

Here is a slide-deck with some examples (there are many more), mostly using examples from PerplexityAI, ChatPDF, Canva Magic and Education CoPilot’s AI FreeStyle space. You can copy the prompts and try in whatever tools you have access to. Teachers with greater expertise than me in these areas might find even more useful applications.
