Currently, there are few opportunities for people to learn about and experiment with the latest spoken language technology. Furthermore, most research and development activities are restricted to a handful of academic and industrial labs. In order to make the technology less exclusive, it must become more accessible to the general population. This is now feasible with the development of the CSLU Toolkit which combines easy-to-use authoring tools with state-of- the-art human language technology. In this paper, we focus on the educational role of the toolkit and describe how it is being used in several local schools.
