As just about everybody knows, new Artificial Intelligence tools are everywhere these days, and it’s hard to keep up with it all.
I tried earlier this month by posting A COLLECTION OF “BEST” LISTS ABOUT USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN EDUCATION, and I will continue updating all of the lists in that collection.
However, I also thought it would be helpful to readers – and to me – to begin yet another AI list where I collect various free (or ones that let you do enough free stuff to make it worth our time before they start charging) AI tools.
I’ll add them to various specific other “Best” lists too – if they fit and as I have time – but this list will also be more-or-less an AI potpourri of sorts. Who knows how long this list is going to end up being!
Please let me know what I’m missing:
Rhyme Cool lets you create rap songs in the style of popular rappers. In one of my other AI “Best” lists, you’ll find one about teaching ELLs I had it create, supposedly in the style of Tupac.
Genmo lets you create videos from text prompts.
Prompt Theory is a Kahoot-like game where players have to guess the prompts used to create AI generated images. I’ve previously shared how I’m doing a simple version of this idea with my ELLs.
Synthesys is a Chrome extension for creating text-generated images.
Character AI lets you create your own…characters to communicate via chatbots.
ResumAI develops your…resume.
Edit images through AI at ImageEditor.ai. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Online Photo-Editing & Photo Effects.
Welma simplifies sentences and paragraphs through the use of AI. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Get The “Same” Text Written For Different “Levels”
Wow To lets you make “how to” videos through the use of AI. You can make several for free. I’m adding it to THE BEST TOOLS FOR STUDENTS TO CREATE TUTORIALS ONLINE.
Stock AI lets you generate images via text, though it’s unclear to many how many you can make for free.
Excelformulabot turns text instructions into Excel and Google Sheets formulas. You can use it several times for free before you have to pay.
Explain Like I’m Five will use AI to explain anything to you…like you are a five year old.
Tell analogenie what you want to explain, and it will use AI to come up with an appropriate analogy.
Perplexity.Ai and Teach Anything are search engines that provides short and simple answers to questions. And, of course, Microsoft is incorporating AI to do the same thing in its Bing search engine. Ten years ago there used to a few other sites that tried to do the same thing, but they seem to have drifted off, probably due to the face that they didn’t work very well. These new AI-powered tools should do better.
NovelListAI and InstaNovel both say they will create a novel out of an idea you have. Novelistai charges, though has free options, and has an intriguing feature that is supposed to let you create “Choose Your Own Adventure” books. InstaNovel seems to be free, but I can’t get it to work.
QuestGen will automatically generate questions for any text, including ones on Bloom’s Taxonomy levels. I’m adding it to both The Best Resources For Helping Teachers Use Bloom’s Taxonomy In The Classroom and to THE “BEST” TOOLS FOR AUTOMATICALLY TURNING TEXTS & VIDEOS INTO INTERACTIVE LANGUAGE LEARNING TOOLS.
Chatbase is interesting. It lets you create a chatbot with any data, like a PDF, you upload. For example, if you could get a freely accessible bio of a historical figure, you could upload it and then have students access info in that way.
Autodraw lets you start doodling something and uses AI to help things along. Hugging Face has a somewhat similar tool. Google developed their own tool called “AutoDraw” a while back, but it doesn’t seem to work right now – at least for me. Google also has “Quick Draw,” which does seem to still work.
Paint by Text lets you “edit your photos using written instructions, with the help of an AI.” I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Online Photo-Editing & Photo Effects.
It isn’t a tool, but this article in the Atlantic about AI prompts, The Most Important Job Skill of This Century, is pretty interesting.
Kaiber is one of the first tools that uses AI to help you create a video – tell it what you want it to look like and it supposedly makes it so. They have a reasonable free option.
Curipod uses AI to create interactive lessons. They seem pretty generic, though. Perhaps a beginning teacher might find it useful for a starting place. I wouldn’t add it, though, to The Best Places On The Web To Write Lesson Plans — Who Have I Missed? or to The Best Places To Find Free (And Good) Lesson Plans On The Internet.
Prompt Hunt looks like a good place to use AI to create images. I’m adding it to THE BEST RESOURCES FOR TEACHING & LEARNING WITH AI ART GENERATION TOOLS.
Choppity is supposed to use AI to turn your videos into better ones for TikTok. It’s probably not useful for the classroom, but could be helpful for teacher-created ed videos.
Storynaut is an app that uses AI to create stories once you input personalized preferences. I’m adding it to THE BEST ONLINE TOOLS USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE FOR CREATING STORIES FOR CHILDREN. Not sure about how good their free options are, though.
Pressto uses AI to help students write essays. I’m adding it to The Best Online Tools That Can Help Students Write An Essay
DALL·E: An “Intelligent” Illustrator for your Language Classroom is from FLT Magazine. I’m adding it to THE BEST RESOURCES FOR TEACHING & LEARNING WITH AI ART GENERATION TOOLS.
Elaborate generates slides and narratives based on outlines. It didn’t seem to do very well with fictional stories and much better with nonfiction topics.
Zyng is a text-based photo-editing tool — edit by text. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Online Photo-Editing & Photo Effects.
Tome is an AI-powered presentation tool that is getting a lot of buzz and you can use it for free for awhile with an education account. Read more about it at Forbes. I’m adding it to The Best Tools That “Automatically” Create Presentations.
Doodle.ai shares an image or two related to this day in history, and then offers a variety of words that might relate to them. You have to pick the correct one-to-three words. There’s a new game each day, as well as a game archive. I’m adding it to The Best “Today In History” Sites.
Quizlet has added an AI-powered feature. It doesn’t seem that helpful to me, but I may very well be missing something.
Blockade Labs will let you use AI to create a 360 degree image of an environment your prompt describes….
Lucid Pic lets you create royalty-free images of people by selecting from an extensive “menu” of features. I’m thinking it might be a useful exercise for ELLs when learning about how to describe things.
Beat Bot creates a song after you tell it your idea for one.
SoundDraw lets you create your own music. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Get Royalty-Free Music & Sound Effects.
— Larry Ferlazzo (@Larryferlazzo) March 6, 2023
Chat Journal serves as an online journal. But what makes it more interesting is that you can turn it into a Chat Bot that you can talk to about you’re feeling and get advice. I’m adding it to The Best Online “Chatbots” For Practicing English.
Team Station Mentor also provides advice through a chat bot, though this tool provides it through audio conversation. I’m adding it to the same list.
Ora lets you create your “own” chatbot.
Opinionate will create a debate on any topic of your choosing – using AI. It seems to work pretty well. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Students To Create & Participate In Online Debates.
ChatGPT YouTube is a Chrome Extension that will give you a summary of any YouTube video.
Type the last three books you read into Reccabook , and it will make books recommendations for you. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Get Blog, Website, Book, Movie, & Music Recommendations.
Readow is another AI tool for book recommendations.
Is it me or everything is now AI? Well, keep them coming!
ChatPDF is a tool that helps users work with their PDF documents more easily. No sign in required. It creates an index of the doc and uses AI to answer your questions about the content in the PDFhttps://t.co/8h62iigPLZ pic.twitter.com/pCJLSqFJdT
— Blog de Cristina (@blogdecristina) March 9, 2023
Grammar GPT helps you with…grammar.
MiniStudio will turn a scanned drawing into an AI-fueled image.
Practice Interview lets you choose the job you want, and then uses an AI-generated chatbot to ask you interview questions that you can answer. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For Students Exploring Jobs and Careers.
The Auto Classmate Activation and Engagement Activity Generator looks like it could be helpful to teachers. There are also other potentially useful tools at the same site.
ChatMind will use AI to respond to your questions by producing mind maps.
PDFGPT joins many previously listed tools that let you upload a PDF, and then uses that info to create a chatbot.
JetVise will use AI to generate a cover letter.
Tell SlidesGPT the topic, and it will create a slideshow about it. Here’s a presentation it created to the prompt, “What the best teaching practices for English Language Learners?” The info is good, though the slide design is awful.
“BookAI.chat” Does An Impressive Job Of Letting You Talk To Any Book
Quizify uses AI to create…quizzes. It’s free option is a decent one.
Hugging Face now has a text-to-video tool that doesn’t work very well.
Runway Research has a text-to-video tool that seems better. You can make a few videos for free.
Quizgecko uses AI to create a quiz from any text or url. You can use it for free with texts of less than 5,000 characters (less than 1,000 words), but it’s much too costly to subscribe (at least, in my opinion). For similar free or much lower-cost tools, check out THE “BEST” TOOLS FOR AUTOMATICALLY TURNING TEXTS & VIDEOS INTO INTERACTIVE LANGUAGE LEARNING TOOLS.
ChatGPT has released support for plugins – “Plugins are tools designed specifically for language models with safety as a core principle, and help ChatGPT access up-to-date information, run computations, or use third-party services.” I’m not exactly sure what that means, but a site called Speak is planning to use it for a language-learning tool. You can sign-up there to be on the waitlist.
Cover Letter Generator will use AI to generate a cover letter after you upload your resume and job application. I’m adding it to The Best Places For Students To Write Their Resumes.
CharacterAI.chat (which is different from a site I previously posted called Character.AI) lets you chat with many different characters, including a language teacher to help you learn a…language; historical characters, and people with different jobs. Unfortunately, you’re only able to aske one character three questions before you have to pay.
Here’s a free ChatGPT extension for Chrome:
Kaya lets you create your own personal chat bot.
MyAskAI also lets you do the same thing, with a free option.
5 CHATGPT CHROME EXTENSIONS FOR TEACHERS is from Class Tech Tips.
Your personal job interview coach is what it says it is. I’m adding it to The Best Places For Students To Write Their Resumes and to The Best Websites For Students Exploring Jobs and Careers.
TalkBerry is a Chrome extension that lets you talk with ChatGPT instead if communicating via text.
Gamma is supposed to automatically make your presentation slides look a lot better.
Have a Chat With Hundreds of Historical Figures is from Richard Byrne.
Quizalize is probably the least sophisticated of the online game sites (which include Quizizz, Kahoot, Blooket & Gimkit). However, they are the first of the bunch to incorporate using AI to help make games.
Study For Citizenship Test uses AI to help you….study for the US citizenship test. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For Learning About Civic Participation & Citizenship.
Turn text into images with Diffusion Art. I’m adding it to THE BEST RESOURCES FOR TEACHING & LEARNING WITH AI ART GENERATION TOOLS.
Story AI lets you create stories, but it seems to be more scaffolded then other similar tools, and that might make it more useful in the classroom. It asks you specific questions about your story, as opposed to just asking you to give it a prompt. I’m adding it to The Best Online Tools Using Artificial Intelligence For Creating Stories For Children.
Teachology is “teachology.ai is a collection of tools for teachers and educators to harness the power of AI in their pedagogy and planning.”
I don’t know what I’m doing, and have no idea if this will be helpful, but I have created an AI bot 2 help educators teach ELLs. On other hand, it may just be a useless gimmick 4 now (which is likely), with vague chance of future usefulness. Check it out: https://t.co/cBcHbacE2b
— Larry Ferlazzo (@Larryferlazzo) April 12, 2023
Cognosys is a way to try out AutoGPT, which is likely to be the next “big thing” in Artificial Intelligence (read more about it here). If I understand it correctly, and I may very well not, it means that you state what your ultimate goal is in the initial prompt, and then the AI takes it from there to self-generate a bunch of subsequent prompts – and answers to them – until it reaches your ultimate goal. For example, I asked it to “Identify a specific kind of book needed for the K-12 education Market.” It then went on to add fifteen new prompts (“tasks”) and answers to them. A fair number of the answers left a lot to be desired, but as AI tools become more powerful, this kind of tool has the potential of being pretty amazing…and a bit scary.
Diffit looks likes a nice tool for teachers to use for creating differentiated materials.
LucidPic will use AI to generate images. I’m adding it to THE BEST RESOURCES FOR TEACHING & LEARNING WITH AI ART GENERATION TOOLS.
Eduaide is another AI tool specifically designed to help teachers with their work.
I’ve previously posted about Curipod, an AI tool designed for teachers to use with students, and wasn’t very impressed with it that the time. It seems to be improving though, based on this video:
This video shares ideas how to use voice with ChatGPT as a partner to practice a language you’re learning. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Practice Speaking English and to The Best Online “Chatbots” For Practicing English:
There are a fair number of AI-powered tools solely devoted to paraphrasing (though, of course, ChatGPT could do it, too). Rephrase is one of them. I’m adding it to I’ve Found These Decent Online Exercises To Teach Paraphrasing – Can You Suggest More?
Word Sponge is a new extension designed to help you learn languages.
Banterai is like an audio chatbot with the avators of famous people. You can call one for free and have a conversation (I had one with “Joe Biden”), but have to pay for more. I’m adding it to The Best Online “Chatbots” For Practicing English.
Experience AI is a series of classroom lessons on AI from the Raspberry Pi Foundation. I’m adding it to A Beginning List Of The Best Resources For Teaching About Artificial Intelligence. Read more about it here.
Conker lets you use AI to create multiple choice quizzes about any subject and/or quizzes about text to paste into it. I’m adding it to THE “BEST” TOOLS FOR AUTOMATICALLY TURNING TEXTS & VIDEOS INTO INTERACTIVE LANGUAGE LEARNING TOOLS.
Google seems to has now made its Practice Sets more widely available. I’m adding it to THE BEST FREE ONLINE TOOLS USING ADAPTIVE LEARNING.
Learnt.ai is yet another AI-powered tool to help teachers plan lessons and create learning tasks. You can try it for free, but then have to pay.
Stable Diffusion lets you create art from text prompts. I’m adding it to THE BEST RESOURCES FOR TEACHING & LEARNING WITH AI ART GENERATION TOOLS.
Butternut AI lets you create a website using AI. I’m adding it to The Best Ways For Students Or Teachers To Create A Website.
RapGPT is another AI tool that will create rap songs of your choice. This one is a little different in that it asks you to answer some questions about the rap you want instead of just asking for a prompt.
With Chat YouTube, just paste the url of the video and AI will let you “talk” with it.
Segment Anything is a new photo-editing tool using AI from Facebook/Meta. Try it out here.
Negotiation Simulator might have some classroom relevance. Via chatbot, you negotiate with a bankrobber to save a hostage. It could be a high-interest activity for language development.
Dropchat lets you “talk” with any book or file.
gotFeedback – An AI Tool for Providing Feedback on Writing is from Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to The Best Online Tools That Can Help Students Write An Essay.
ChartGPT is pretty cool – tell it your data and the kind of chart you want, and it will create it (I tried this data – “The more a teacher tends to talk, the less a student tends to learn”). I’m adding it to The Best Tools To Make Simple Graphs Online.
ArcaneLand could be a fun, though complicated, choose your own adventure game for ELLs.
Infinite Adversaries is another complicated choose your own adventure game.
I’m adding both of them to The Best Places To Read & Write “Choose Your Own Adventure” Stories.
Chat with Ghengis Khan, and it also lets you create a chatbot of your own.
This AI Tool Generates Reading Comprehension Questions for Any Article is from Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to THE “BEST” TOOLS FOR AUTOMATICALLY TURNING TEXTS & VIDEOS INTO INTERACTIVE LANGUAGE LEARNING TOOLS.
Text2Pics might have some value to ELLs. As you type a sentence, or words, and image representing them appears above what you’ve typed. It might be an intriguing tool for ELL Beginners to try.
Shakespeare Toolbar might also be useful to ELLs. Among other things, once you highlight a passage, it will rephrase it in a more simple way.
HOW TO DIFFERENTIATE TEXTS WITH CHATGPT is from TechNotes. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Get The “Same” Text Written For Different “Levels” and to THE BEST POSTS ON EDUCATION & CHATGPT.
Superchat’s new AI chatbot lets you message historical and fictional characters via ChatGPT is from TechCrunch.
Hyperwrite’s Personal Assistant looks like it might be worth a look as an aide to writing. You have to get on its waiting list, though. However, until it’s released, their HyperWrite Google Extension might be worth a look. You can both get on the waiting list and download the extension here.
GPT-4 AI Movie Plot Twister is interesting. Type in the name of any movie, and it will provide you a variety of different “plot twists.” I’m thinking that it could be useful to show one of its examples as a model, and then challenge students to come up with their own – maybe an ELL activity?
ChatGPT on 2-Dimensional Map does what it’s name says it does – it gives answers to your prompt in sort of a “mind-map” that turns into a Prezi-like presentation. Here’s a screenshot (not interactive) of what it gave me after I asked it to list the most effective ELL teaching strategies. The answers are the same ChatGPT would give you anywhere, but the display is obviously different and, if you clicked on the boxes at the app, they would each become screensize:
It was free to create this one, though I’m sure it’s a freemium site.
Speaking of mind maps, Cool Mind Maps uses AI to create them on any topic you want, and it’s completely free. Just type in the topic and it’s there! I’m adding it to Not “The Best,” But “A List” Of Mindmapping, Flow Chart Tools, & Graphic Organizers.
With Song Words, you type in the name of the song and artist, and it will generate a downloadable image sharing that song’s most important lyric. I’m adding it to The Best Tools For Creating Visually Attractive Quotations For Online Sharing.
Tandem GPT and TalkPal are free online tools using AI to teach languages. Tandem seems better designed to teach at different levels, and allows you to chat with a bot by text. You can speak to it by audio, but it will only respond via text. TalkPal doesn’t seem as well-designed, but you hear the audio of the bot, as well as speak to it. I’m adding them both to THE BEST MULTILINGUAL & BILINGUAL SITES FOR LEARNING ENGLISH & OTHER LANGUAGES.
I’ve previously posted about a classroom activity I use designed to have students create simple explanations of complex topics (see STUDENT EXAMPLE OF TEACHING A COMPLEX TOPIC “TO A FIVE YEAR OLD”). There’s an online tool that does the same, but it charges, and is called ExplainLikeImFive. However, Teaching Anything does something similar, and is free.
TinyStorie appears to be free, and lets you create online stories in English or in Spanish. One thing I like about it is that it asks you several questions about what you want in your story first. I’m adding it to The Best Online Tools Using Artificial Intelligence For Creating Stories For Children.
You can request access to Google’s “Test Kitchen” (I received an invite the following day). It’s where they share their latest AI experiments. The only one they have there now is a text-to-music tool called MusicLM (read about it here). I’m adding it to The Best Online Sites For Creating Music.
LearnLingo has a demo of tool they’re developing to teach multiple languages.
This isn’t a tool, but it’s good advice from SuperHuman: Use this prompt after pasting in something you’ve written:
Proofread my writing below. Fix grammar and spelling mistakes. And make suggestions that will improve the clarity of my writing.
A guide to prompting AI (for what it is worth) is from One Useful Thing. I’m adding it to the same list.
Five Interesting Uses of ChatGPT is from Century Tech. It’s going on the same list.
EdPuzzle has added “an AI feature called Edpuzzle Teacher Assist.” Read more about it at Richard Byrne’s blog.
Dezgo is another text-to-image AI tool. I’m adding it to THE BEST RESOURCES FOR TEACHING & LEARNING WITH AI ART GENERATION TOOLS.
Prep AI will prepare questions, etc. about your content. It has an okay free plan. I’m adding it to THE “BEST” TOOLS FOR AUTOMATICALLY TURNING TEXTS & VIDEOS INTO INTERACTIVE LANGUAGE LEARNING TOOLS.
There’s nothing earth-shaking about this next video, but it’s short, and it gives some nice examples of how teachers can use Google’s Bard:
New from Bard:
Making sources more useful
- What: Bard can now help you identify which parts of a response match a source. For the responses with sources, you’ll see numbers alongside the response. By clicking on the numbers you will now be able to identify the section of the text that matches the source and easily navigate to it.
- Why: We want to make it easier for you to understand which parts of a response match a source and provide you with source links in line with the text.
OpenAI launches an official ChatGPT app for iOS is from TechCrunch.
Presentation GPT looks like the best automatic presentation-maker I’ve seen so far. The slides it creates have far too much text on them, but they do include images (unlike others). Here’s one on teaching ELLs it made for me in seconds.
Avatars.Ai lets you “talk” with “famous” people.
Kreado.ai lets you create videos with AI-created characters.
Comical is an AI tool that will create comic strips. You have to request an invitation before using it now. I did, and liked it a lot. Depending on its cost and availability, I think it would have a lot of potential for classroom use. For now, I’m adding it to The Best Ways To Make Comic Strips Online.
CHATGPT EXTENSIONS: MAKE IT YOUR PERSONAL ASSISTANT is from TESL Ontario.
Neural Frames lets you create text-to-animations. You can create one a month for free.
Lesson Robot uses AI to create lesson plans, and you can make your first five for free.
Got Wonder is a ChatGPT for children (that also might be useful for ELLs). You might also be interested in “CAMCAM” IS SUPPOSED TO BE “THE FIRST CHATGPT FOR KIDS”
ChatGPT for language learning – All the Prompts you need is from Educraft. I’m adding it THE BEST POSTS ON EDUCATION & CHATGPT.
Piggy Magic has AI creating quizzes, stories and summaries. I don’t think any of its features are quite ready for primetime, but you might want to take a look.
CoverCraftr creates cover letters for resumes. I’m adding it to The Best Places For Students To Write Their Resumes.
Kaya lets you upload documents and then “talk” to them.
Quiz Wizard lets you create lesson plans and quizzes. I think it’s too expensive, but you can create three lesson plans a month for free.
BitLife lets you create your own “virtual assistants.”
Meiro lets you use AI to create “tests, quizzes and text games.” It’s free while in beta.
I’m fairly impressed with SkillFlow. Tell it precisely what you want to learn, and it will create an online “course” for you to take to learn it.
Slatebox will use AI to create a “mindmap” of the answer to your question. I’m adding it to Not “The Best,” But “A List” Of Mindmapping, Flow Chart Tools, & Graphic Organizers.
PPTX lets you create AI-powered PowerPoint presentations for you. It really doesn’t produce much actual info content, but the slides look nice.
Cover Letter Assistant will use AI to write…cover letters. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For Students Exploring Jobs and Careers.
AI Quiz Maker will make…quizzes automatically out of inputted text. I’m adding it to THE “BEST” TOOLS FOR AUTOMATICALLY TURNING TEXTS & VIDEOS INTO INTERACTIVE LANGUAGE LEARNING TOOLS.
Educator Lab is yet another site for educators to use for creating lessons with AI. You can do a few things for free before you have to pay.
Avtars lets you “talk” with celebrities.
Adobe Firefly lets you do lots of things with images. It is being added to Adobe Express via a beta version and I’m assuming that it will eventually be added to Adobe Express for education, but who knows?
Hilink is a free AI-powered lesson planner.
Keenious is yet another AI tool that’s supposed to help you identify relevant research papers. I’m actually not quite sure exactly how it works or how much you can use it for free, so I’m not yet adding it to The Best Tools For Academic Research.
Buddies lets you either chat to a specific chatbot or create your own. There are so many of these now, and I don’t really know which tool is better than the other. Because of that, I’m going to stop adding most of them to The Best Online “Chatbots” For Practicing English. Of course, ELLs can always just “talk” to Bard, ChatGPT or Poe.
Falou is yet another app for learning languages.
Lalamu is now a demo where you can sync lips in a video. It’s free at this time, but I assume when they get out of demo mode, they’ll start charging.
Clio will convert your sketch into a beautiful images that looks something like it.
OpenAI launches an official ChatGPT app for iOS is from TechCrunch.
Zoo lets you compare the results from several text-to-image models after you input a prompt. I’m adding it to THE BEST RESOURCES FOR TEACHING & LEARNING WITH AI ART GENERATION TOOLS.
Lasco.ai is a free text-to-image tool. I’m adding it to the same list.
ChatAD lets you interact with, along with creating your own, chatbots. The difference between it and many others is that it is also audio-based. I’m adding it to The Best Online “Chatbots” For Practicing English.
CopyingAI is a text-to-video tool.
Puzzicle lets you create free interactive video lessons. However, even though the design seemed pretty simple, it didn’t work as promised. I have had similar challenges with EdPuzzle’s AI quiz builder, so I wonder if this kind of exercise is particularly challenging for AI at the moment.
Got Feedback is an intriguing free tool. You first tell it what you want to evaluate in a piece of student writing. Then you upload the writing. Finally, it provides you with suggest feedback you can offer that student.
This is interesting: 3000+ Most Popular AI Websites Sorted By Monthly Traffic
Aidemia has lots of tools for teachers. I’m adding it to NOT NECESSARILY THE “BEST,” BUT A LIST OF AI TEACHER PREP SITES.
ChatPrompt Genius will help you create the right prompt to get the results you want. I’m adding it to the same list.

Curio will provide you with an audio “course” on any question. You can get a short free trial.
ChatEQ is a chatbot designed to provide personal coaching.
Gigabrain is basically a search engine for Reddit and other user-supported sites.
The AI Archives lets you save all your interactives with ChatGPT and Bard.
Speakable, the amazing AI-powered site for language instruction, is getting even better. All its new components might not yet be active, but they say the will be before the end of the summer. They include being able to tell it what language sets you want it to create (instead of having to make them manually), and having AI-powered student feedback on responses to questions. I was able to test them out, and they look terrific.
Anime Art and Freepik AI image generator are text-to-image generators. I’m adding them to THE BEST RESOURCES FOR TEACHING & LEARNING WITH AI ART GENERATION TOOLS.
RoomGPT lets you remodel your room – or any room. It could be useful with ELLs where they could use the tool and then write about it.
Youtube AI Buddy lets you interact with YouTube videos.
Interviewsby.ai is yet another interview simulation tool. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For Students Exploring Jobs and Careers.
Albus is pretty interesting. First you ask AI a question, and then it will respond to you in sort of stickynotes you put on a board. Then you can add more notes to the board. I’m adding it to The Best Online Virtual “Corkboards” (or “Bulletin Boards”).
Not a tool, but a useful article: Chatbots That Impersonate Famous Figures: Should Teachers Use Them or Steer Clear?
Guidde lets you create How-to videos. I’m adding it to THE BEST TOOLS FOR STUDENTS TO CREATE TUTORIALS ONLINE.
How to make your own AI bot with Poe is from Fast Company.
Leapp will use AI to create a “learning plan” for any topic you want.
Three AI Tools for Creating Spreadsheet Formulas is from TechNotes.
GradeGenius gives feedback on essays.
AI Image Variations lets you upload a photo and then it produces several variations, generally with relatively minor changes. I think it could be a useful tool for ELLs and I’m adding it to Using “Spot The Difference” Pictures With ELLs.
TOP MARKS AI is another feedback tool for essays. It has a free trial.
Get Buddies lets you create your own virtual person.
Tome looks like an impressive storytelling tool. I’m adding it to THE BEST ONLINE TOOLS USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE FOR CREATING STORIES FOR CHILDREN.
Leet Resumes will use AI to upgrade and revise your resume. I’m adding it to The Best Places For Students To Write Their Resumes.
Sketch2Render will make a sketch you upload look a lot better.
Math Tutor is a chatbot who will…tutor you in math.
Trying all AI tools that catch my fancy. Today,the turn is for https://t.co/Bx1kyp56Mw. Upload a video in your own language,and it clones your voice into the desired language.

This looks like a good – and free – intro online course to AI.
h2oGPT lets you ask six different AI chatbots the same question simultaneously.
Playground lets you create 1,000 images a day for free. I’m adding it to THE BEST RESOURCES FOR TEACHING & LEARNING WITH AI ART GENERATION TOOLS.
Open Resume uses AI to help you create a resume for free. I’m adding it to The Best Places For Students To Write Their Resumes.
HOW TO GENERATE IMAGES AND ART WITH AI is from TechNotes. I’m adding it to THE BEST RESOURCES FOR TEACHING & LEARNING WITH AI ART GENERATION TOOLS.
Stork is a video conferencing tool that lets you have up to fifty participants free, along with AI assistants (though I don’t actually know what that means).
SummerQ summarizes YouTube videos and answers questions about them.
Prezo, not to be confused with the slideshow app Prezi, uses AI to create slideshow presentations on any topic you want. Like most of the AI presentation tools out there, its slides are terrible, but I guess they could be a start? You can create at least one presentation, maybe more, for free.
Dungeon AI lets you participate in a role-playing game with others, or create your own world. It is likely to be blocked by district content filters because of its multi-player function (so students could be playing with anyone), but it is intriguing because students could also create their own world and just play with their friends.
