Welcome to day nine of the 2023 Appvent calendar where today we will focus on a great tool for creating images, posters and other graphics. Today’s brilliant free tool is ideogram!
As you’ll have read on the previous day’s posts, with the furore around the usefulness of AI within EdTech, we decided this year to focus our Appvent calendar on AI with a #24DaysOfAI event. For all the conversations and shares on the calendar, please check out the hashtag on LinkedIn and X/Twitter.
Our AI tool of the day:
One of the difficult aspects of image generation using AI tools is that they all struggle at adding text onto the images – enter ideogram.ai!
This free-to-use tool works in a browser on all devices that incorporate a modern browser.
There aren’t any pro-educational benefits in terms of student learning with ideogram, however, there are many uses that will help teachers in creating resources for use in the classroom or across the school.
Ideogram is very useful in helping to create resources for teachers and others working in education.
From posters to promote your subject, keywords, extra-curricular activities, events, and creative writing prompts; there are many uses to consider.
Considerations and Tips:
When integrating any new tool into our educational environment, it’s essential to thoroughly evaluate its application scenarios and the nature of the data it will handle. Before adoption, be sure to consult your Data Protection Officer (as we are sure you always do) to conduct a Data Protection Impact Assessment, helping to guarantee compliance and safeguarding before its implementation. With this tool too, try to be mindful of any bias that the tool might have inherently included in its output.
