Using Siri and Alexa in the Classroom

As an English teacher, I totally understand why voice-triggered “assistants” feels like something straight out of 1984. It might be too soon to use AI for anything confidential or sensitive. 

But as a technology nerd, I do see potential here for classroom use.

“Hey Siri, remind me at 8:00PM to read Justin’s essay.”
“Alexa, what’s the weather like outside?”
“Hey Google, play my Classroom Writing playlist.”
