Education Dive, a leading education industry publication, recently featured Voxy in an article that dives into how artificial intelligence is lending itself to improved personalized learning, classroom accessibility, and enhanced educational tools. Here we take a closer look at how Voxy’s AI-powered platform has the ability to make language learning programs faster, better, and stronger.
It is predicted that online videos will account for 82% of internet traffic by 2022, and there’s no question that they have become part of our everyday lives. So why not take advantage of the affordances that they offer for language learning?
A new, independent study by the American Institutes for Research demonstrates Voxy’s efficacy in significantly improving learners’ English language proficiency compared to learners using traditional language learning platforms.
Language learning works best when learners practice with materials that are interesting to them and relevant to their goals. That’s why Voxy’s patented technology takes authentic pieces of media (articles, video transcripts, images, tweets, etc.) and turns them into English lessons quickly.

In the “olden days”–that is, even just three or four years ago–tools like Skype or Google Hangouts would crash, …
Existe evidencia de que, en general, la tecnología puede brindar oportunidades de estudio a quienes no podrían acceder a la educación de otra manera, lo cual tendrá un impacto enorme en la vida de millones de personas. Sin embargo, los cursos en línea siguen siendo copias de las clases presenciales y, en cuanto al diseño instruccional, todavía podríamos ser mucho más innovadores y revolucionarios. Quizás, parte del problema se deba a que no estamos aprovechando todo lo que la enseñanza impulsada por tecnología puede ofrecer a la ciencia del aprendizaje.
Now more than ever, the education industry is focused on “gamification,” or creating learning activities from games. But many of the things that make playing a game fun are the same factors that make language learning hard. Let’s explore several ways game and language application designers can bridge this gap.
We know from copious amounts of research that instruction works best when it is personal. Yet daunted at the prospect of sorting this out, many language programs revert to the outdated approach of just assigning everyone the same thing. However, maybe incorporating individualized instruction into a group curriculum isn’t as hard as it might seem.
