AI Writers in Language Learning

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


Artificial intelligence (AI) is fast becoming a key instrument in several fields and is also transforming the way we communicate. Consequently, we need to understand the role of AI and augmented writing (AW) in language learning (L2 text production) and to understand how AI writers and language learners work together. The objective of this paper is to examine selected AI writers and discuss theoretical considerations on how AI writers can enhance language learning. The paper draws on data from a structured test and analysis of 39 different AI writers [7, 8, 9] and small experiments in different classes at a Danish university. One aspect from the data was that students found that AI writers were useful, but that they need to learn how to work with an AI writer when producing L2 texts. In conclusion, AI writing technologies seem to be highly relevant in language classes just as the calculator was in math classes 50 years ago.
