AI Literacy Network in Primary Education

Project Details


Motivation is a key to literacy acquisition, because students who are motivated for reading and writing are more easily
engaged in reading and writing activities and thereby learn more from the activities. In practice, however, writing instruction
is often quite repetitive and dominated by "artificial" tasks without authentic audiences. This project aims to increase
students' motivation for reading and writing, and facilitate teachers' scaffolding of literacy activities.We will design digital scaffolding material for students and digital guidance material helping teachers scaffold writing. We
will design algorithms facilitating international circulation of student texts (recommender systems, automatic text analysis
and machine translation). We will build a prototype platform where this material and these algorithms can be implemented
and tested. Finally, we will disseminate the results both locally, nationally and internationally.The main result of the project will be a usable prototype of an evidence-based platform scaffolding students' (age = 8-11)
writing and matching students’ texts to student readers in other schools and other countries. After the project, prototype will
be transformed into a fully operational open source platform usable by all teachers and students.
