Abstract

This sharing highlights a transformative journey led by Dr. Gary Chow, wherein the integration of AI technology, specifically speech-to-text, revolutionized Authentic assessment, micro-teaching, and empowered students in their learning and teaching practices. Dr. Chow’s involvement in the CRAC project “Promoting AI Literacy and Effective Use of AI in Education” in 2020 served as the catalyst for this innovative endeavor. As an educator in PE training, Dr. Chow harnessed the power of speech-to-text technology to facilitate micro-teaching sessions, enabling students to gain a heightened awareness of their language usage and its impact on instruction and feedback skills. Building on this initial success, further investigations in 2021 explored language differences between in-service and pre-service PE teachers, providing valuable insights for subsequent technology integration in 2023/24. The user-friendly nature of speech-to-text technology empowered students to visualize and refine their language use, transforming the organization of the course and offering tangible evidence for authentic assessment. This pioneering approach not only fosters a deeper understanding of authentic learning but also highlights the need for continued integration of technology in daily practice, particularly for the purpose of authentic assessment in teaching and learning contexts.
