Educators grapple with an immense workload that spans lesson preparation, grading, and maintaining open lines of communication with both parents and students. A recent comprehensive study encompassing over 5,000 teachers, conducted by York University, illuminates that teacher burnout has emerged as the primary factor prompting educators to exit the profession (Madigan et al., 2023). In this context, having access to a dedicated AI tool tailored to the needs of teachers can serve as a potent means to enhance their effectiveness, all while alleviating the burdensome weight of their responsibilities, provided it is harnessed effectively.

Eduaide AI represents an AI-powered tool tailored for educators, encompassing a multitude of features designed to aid in the planning and assessing process, alleviating the traditional workload. Holmes & Luckin, (2016) noted that “we look towards a future when extraordinary AIEd tools will support teachers in meeting the needs of all learners. Drawing on the power of both human and artificial intelligence, we will lessen achievement gaps, address teacher retention and development, and equip parents to better support their children’s (and their own) learning” (pg. 11). Using a tool, such as Eduaide, teachers have the ability to pull a diverse collection of resources and supports to address achievement gaps that they may have not had access to in the past.

When using Eduaide, teachers can curate educational resources, assisting with the time-intensive search processes that often burden educators. This tool also has a virtual assistant function that can optimize workflow through the generation of tailored lesson plans, real-time feedback provision, and access to a suite of assessment tools.

These are the tools Eduaide offers within one platform:

  • Content Generator: Planning, Information Objects, Independent Practice, Gamification, and Questions
  • Feedback Bot: Typographic Feedback, Syntactical Feedback, Semantic Feedback, and Custom Feedback
  • Assistant: Professional Duties, Accessibility, and Wellness
  • Assessment Builder: Multiple Choice, True or False, Short Answer, Fill in the Blank, Matching, and Essay

Critical Media Literacy (connection to Curriculum)

Eduaide is a powerful tool to retrieve information and create suggested content for materials. The user must have the knowledge surrounding their curriculum and student objectives to make professional decisions on how to use/implement the content created in Eduaide.  There are several key mechanisms that Eduaide supports and further develops media literacy skills using:

  1. Curated Content: Eduaide provides access to a curated library of educational resources that align with subject areas and assigned outcomes. Depending on the targeted feature, the content Eduaide creates includes engaging activities, rubrics, quizzes, and interactive modules that educators can incorporate into their teaching.
  2. Lesson Plan Generation: Eduaide’s virtual assistant can generate lesson plans specifically focused on the subject and grade level. Within the planning section, users have the option to select outputs that match their teaching pedagogy. For example, Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction, 5 E Lesson Plan, or Evidence Statements using Bloom’s Taxonomy.
  3. Feedback and Assessment: The platform provides a feedback tool that generates feedback on student work surrounding areas such as typographic, syntactical, semantic, or customized with the user’s own rubric. The user will need to have the student work in digital format so they can copy and paste the text into the textbox. Additionally, with defined prompts, users may utilize the assessment tool to aid in the creation of a variety of quizzes. User discretion is important in how this information is used and implemented.

Affordances and Constraints


  • Variety of Tools: There is a tool that can be utilized at some capacity whether to aid in email writing, create a rubric, or to gather ideas for lesson plans. Eduaide is tailored for educators and has done a thorough job of covering a wide range of helpful tools.
  • Language Availability: Eduaide currently has 16 languages available for translation (Arabic, Cantonese, English, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, and Vietnamese).
  • Built-in Text Editor: Throughout the process of using Eduaide’s tools, the user adds the content to the “Workspace” on the right side of the platform. The workspace allows users to edit and revise the content as they build their materials directly within the program, unlike many other LLM platforms.
  • For Teachers, Made by Teachers: Eduaide was curated by teachers who worked closely with the designers and engineers. The platform has an advisory board that is made up of teachers, professors, principals, as well as a superintendent. This has impacted the vast assortment of resources and educational content that is available.
  • Subscription or Licensing Fees: Educators are often lacking a budget to cover subscription costs, thereby limiting the number of teachers who will consistently use a tool. Eduaide is free for users which aids the tools in creating more reliable and useful content.
  • Safety & Security of Student Work: Eduaide does not save student work when imported into the Feedback Bot; nor do they store any student personally identifiable information. Eduaide Ai is both FERPA and COPPA-compliant (Thompson, 2023).  The feedback is generated without saving the original content. With this, teachers do not have to worry about privacy concerns surrounding students’ names/information.


  • Subject-Specific Content: Science, Social Studies, Mathematics, Language Arts, and Enrichment are the five subject categories; subject areas falling within the “Enrichment” category appear to have less content in the lesson planning and activity areas and more specific prompting is required.

  • Learning curve: It took a considerable amount of time to learn how to navigate the platform; it was not as user-friendly as expected.

  • Rubric Exporting: Once you have finalized your rubrics, you are not able to export in the format of a table which adds more time in the editing process once exported. However, if you are confident in the rubric, you can take a screenshot of the image to bypass this issue.

Next, enter the keyword or topic that aligns with the desired resource. Click the enhance button until you are satisfied with the prompt and feel it best aligns with the content that is being generated.

Teaching Assistant

Feedback Bot

  • To use the Feedback Bot, the content must be digital as the only function you are to perform is copying & pasting in the students’ work. The user should be mindful of this as it will impact the planning/collecting of student work.
