Artificial Intelligence is the big topic in tech, and in education, circles these days.
Of course, there is Chat GPT, and you can learn a lot about it at another “Best” list – The Best Posts On Education & ChatGPT.
I’ve previously published some post about using AI art generation with English Language Learners – having them use text on an AI tool to create art, and then have other students try to guess what prompt they used. Or having ELLs try to refine their prompts to get exactly what they hope to see.
I thought readers would find it useful if I collected those posts into one “Best” list, along with listing the AI art generation tools I think are most accessible to students. Please feel free to contribute your own lesson ideas and resources in the comments section!
THIS COULD BE A FUN WAY TO USE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE WHEN TEACHING ENGLISH TO ELLS
TEACHING ENGLISH THROUGH USING AI FOR ART CREATION
For art generation tools, my first choices are Padlet‘s “I Can’t Draw” feature and Canva’s Text To Image tool. I also like Playground AI a lot.
There are plenty of others, but practically all the rest of them let you make a few pieces of art, but then require payment. Instead of listing them all, here are links to a few other lists.

You Imagine has added a text-to-drawing feature.
Prompt Hunt looks like a good place to use AI to create images.

Again, please share your own lesson ideas and links to tools you like!
This is very cool. “A robot riding a bicycle in Antarctica in the style of Van Gogh.” AI can now create images out of thin air. See how it works. https://t.co/4Yac9gAJ3c
