In response to my last post, readers sent in suggestions for other “chatbots” — artificially intelligent avatars.
David Deubelbeiss, the founder of EFL Classroom 2.0, recommended Dave. He also wrote:
“I’m working with another person to develop a bot for students where you don’t have to type! This is a significant drawback for ELLs. The model is to have a menu of selected questions/replies which the students click . This is converted into speech and then Dave replies. ”
By the way, there have been a lot of recent upgrades to EFL Classroom 2.0, so if you haven’t gone there recently I’d encourage you to make a visit.
English Language Learners would find both useful.
Thanks to David & Alicia for sharing the links!
