CIDDList: 5 AIs You Need to Check Out This Summer!

Author: Samantha Goldman; info@ciddl.org

CIDDL, and, let’s face it, the world as a whole, has been fascinated with the launch of AI and how it is and will impact our lives. We have talked a lot about the impact of ChatGPT, and how it can be used to support literacy, math, and even solve word problems. In a recent CIZZL, our chef Tiffanie Zaugg used it to generate her recipe. But, did you know that there are literally thousands of AIs that have been developed with specific roles and areas of expertise? 

There’s an AI for that

Yup. That is the website’s name that focuses on curating, categorizing, and disseminating information about all of the AIs that are being developed and in existence. There are some AIs listed that are purely for fun, like Botify, where you can have a conversation with famous characters including Cleopatra and Sherlock Holmes. And, if you are always looking for a chess partner, there’s an AI for that too! 

5 AIs to Explore This Summer for Personnel Preparation

  1. Cool MindMaps: Breaking down tasks, understanding the various steps of a task, and developing specific objectives are complex procedures that educators and related service personnel need to be able to do in order to support their students. With Cool MindMaps, you can input a question or subject and it will break it down into an easy-to-follow flow chart. 
  2. Curipod: This AI does it all for lesson planning. Give it a concept and it will create the presentation with embedded activities for teachers to use with their students. 
  3. Trellis: This AI looks like it has the potential to be a game changer for special education. It has the ability to change text complexity and even create visuals to support the information. However, there is a waitlist, so I wasn’t able to try it out. 
  4. Slait: An AI that teaches you ASL! Dr. Lorna Quandt, introduced us to using mixed reality to learn ASL in a previous research and practice brief. This AI works with you as you learn the language. 
  5. Essay Grader: Evaluating writing is time-consuming and a hard task to teach. Using an AI, like Essay Grader, provides pre-service teachers the opportunity to see how essays score on a rubric and suggestions for feedback. It even has error detection. Pre-service teachers can use this to help guide them while they are learning what makes a good writer.

Which AIs are You Loving?

There are over 4,000 AIs on the site and more are being developed all the time. Check out There’s an AI for That and explore what you could use to help you or your pre-service teachers. Then, head over to our community and share about it! We would love to learn from you!
