Let's get A.I. working for your CLIL lesson, shall we?

You're invited to join the Online CLIL Summit 2023, where you'll learn how to use A.I. tools to turn your ideas into real-life, practical lesson ideas you can use tomorrow.

17 & 18 October 2023
  • Do you realise A.I. is here to stay, but have no idea how to implement it to your CLIL lesson?
  • Would you like to hear how other CLIL teachers implement A.I. in their lessons effectively?
  • Does it seem impossible to keep up with all of the A.I. news and would you like to know what works. For you. Now?

What is the Online CLIL Summit?

This summit is for CLIL teachers from all over the world looking for ways to implement A.I. in their lessons.

With 10 international speakers you are sure to hear both practical and inspirational ideas to use in your lesson!

Both days will feature a lineup of speakers that will not only share their ideas, but will discuss these live with you. This edition is all about interactivity, so you are more than welcome to join the conversation

Can't make all of the sessions? Don't worry, the recordings are all included in your ticket as well, so you don't have to miss out on anything.

Do you recognise any of this?

You have heard about A.I. but don't really know what to do with it in your lesson.

You have played around with ChatGTP but have not been able to really implement it in your lesson.

You want to use A.I. in your lesson, but don't know where to start.

If any of these ring a bell, this summit is your answer!

The event is completely online so you can participate in the summit anywhere you want.

What you will learn

How to generate lesson ideas

Specific prompts can help you to get the most out of A.I. Discover what you can and cannot get A.I. to do for you.

What websites can improve your teaching

Am I, a CLIL teacher, going to be replaced by A.I.?

In early 2023, initial reactions towards Generative AI in education were reactive, sometimes hostile. By mid-year talk about language learning became proactive, with particular focus on AI-enabled learning of language structures and speech, and how its use could provide greater space for CLIL’s development as a ‘signature pedagogy’.

Sjuup Rekko

Using AI to assist with math!

Various AI models have been combined to create a new digital assistant: MathGPT and GraphGPT. This always cheerful and upbeat assistant supports with math and with drawing graphs without typing any formula. Instead of just providing answers or solutions, he asks questions based on the student's mostly written input. In this playful manner, not only can the student call for help 24/7, but they are also assisted in gaining a better understanding of their own challenges.

About Sjuup Rekko

As an entrepreneur, researcher, inventor, and educator, Sjuup is constantly searching for ways to better assist students with their challenges in mathematics, physics, and statistics. It's not just about the rational aspect; the emotional aspect also plays a significant role. His latest innovation in this field is MathGPT and GraphGPT.
