Human and Machine

Will chatbots soon replace teachers? Is it possible to experience exams through a virtual reality headset? And do you still need language courses at all in an era of translation software? Academics, teachers and learners, as well as publishing representatives and programmers came together at the STARTKLAR?! workshop conference from 21st – 23rd March in Berlin, to discuss the future of digital language learning and develop actual approaches.


Participants from a variety of academic backgrounds discussed a wide range of themes of the first day: Digital Literacy, Artificial Intelligence, Learning Analytics, Global Workspaces, Immersive Learning, Translation Technology, Open Sources and Digital Task and Exercise Formats.
