Abstract

This chapter discusses the theoretical frameworks for Artificial Intelligence (AI) teacher and how AI teacher has been applied to facilitate game-based literacy learning in existing empirical studies. While the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in education is a relatively emerging research area, it has received increasing attention in the scientific community. In the future, AI teacher is likely to be able to serve as a powerful supplementary tool in classroom teaching in supportive of human teacher. Our main goal here is to provide the readers with new insights on promoting game-based literacy learning from the perspectives of AI teacher. To this end, we introduce the readers to the key concepts of AI teacher, the merits and demerits of AI teacher in education, scientific research on AI teacher in literacy learning, and some highlighted examples of AI teacher in literacy classrooms for practical concerns.
