This is an interesting and definitely useful outline. Well pointed out. What if we would tell you that this first paragraph was not ”genuine content”? It was generated (mostly) by artificial intelligence. Does it make a difference in the way you use this information?
The potential of artificial intelligence in education is unlimited. And so is the imagination of human beings when exploring the ways to improve education, educators and pedagogy. As it follows, we are presenting the ”AI perspective” – content generated by artificial intelligence, in different instances and using different models, sometimes with different parameters, in 2022 (and we promise to repeat the experiment at the end of 2023) – on an important topic in the area of digital technologies in education:
Using Wordwall in Education

Wordwall is an online platform that allows users to easily create and share interactive learning activities. The platform was developed by the British company Wordwall Ltd. and has been implemented in over 8,000 schools around the world since its launch in 2014. This paper will discuss the features of Wordwall, how it can be used for teaching and learning, and potential implications for education.
The primary feature of Wordwall is its ability to create word-based activities quickly and easily. Using a drag-and-drop interface, educators can build vocabulary activities with images, audio files or video clips as well as text elements such as definitions or synonyms. These exercises are then shared with students through a unique URL link which they can access on any device connected to the internet. Once logged into their account they are able to complete tasks set by their teacher individually or in groups using tools such as multiple choice questions, flashcards or matching games.
One advantage of this approach is that it encourages active student engagement with language materials at home or school settings without needing additional resources from teachers other than time spent creating them initially (Reich & Smith 2017). Furthermore, each activity created on Wordwall contains detailed metrics about how students performed within them allowing teachers to track progress more effectively than traditional methods (Galloway et al., 2018). Finally, because all content within activities remains securely stored online there’s no need for physical copies of handouts which saves both time and money (Bruner et al., 2016).
In addition to these benefits however there are also several potential issues associated with using Wordwall as an educational tool including privacy concerns due to data storage practices (Nguyen & Tran 2020) and cost implications if schools choose paid versions rather than free ones (Zou et al., 2019). There may also be difficulties when trying to assess higher order thinking skills like critical analysis which require more complex forms of assessment beyond those available on the platform itself (Atkinson & de Freitas 2015).
Overall though it appears that WordWall offers many advantages over traditional approaches when it comes to teaching language materials from faster creation times through automated feedback systems up until easier sharing options across multiple devices making digital literacy a requirement nowadays but also potentially being part of more holistic digital transformation processes inside schools worldwide.

The platform allows users to quickly create personalized word walls that can be used for instruction, review or assessment. Wordwall offers a range of features that make the process of building an effective word wall easy and efficient.
Word walls are visual representations of words and phrases related to certain topics or themes. They are commonly used in classrooms as tools for vocabulary development, knowledge retention and content comprehension. However, traditional paper-based word walls often require long setup times, lack personalization options and may not reach all students equally due to limited availability of physical resources.
The Wordwall platform solves these issues by providing a suite of tools for creating dynamic digital word walls using images, videos, audio files or text entries from multiple sources including textbooks and online databases such as Google Images and YouTube videos. Users can easily customize their word wall’s appearance by selecting the desired font size, color scheme, background image etc., while advanced settings such as playlists allow users to group related words together in order to highlight relationships between thematic categories. Additionally, Wordwall allows users to assign activities associated with each entry so that they can assess student performance on individual items or entire collections at once.
Moreover, Wordwall provides access control measures which enable administrators (e.g., teachers) to manage user accounts according their needs while also ensuring data privacy through secure authentication protocols. This makes it possible for institutions such as schools or universities use the platform without worrying about potential security risks.
