Involve(d) in

😦 Giving a challenge for human workers to involve in controlling machines is a good idea.

Involve as adjective

You got the preposition right, but the wrong form of ‘involve’. This is nearly always constructed as an ‘ed’ adjective phrase:

🙂 Giving a challenge for human workers to be involved in controlling machines is a good idea.

‘Get’ also collocates strongly with ‘involved in’, as does the more formal ‘become’:

🙂 Giving a challenge for human workers to get/become involved in controlling machines is a good idea.

It’s not always necessary to mention the activity that someone is involved in:

🙂 I’m involved.

flag-of-indonesia For Indonesians there are easy translations for involved as adjective:

involved – terlibat
(to be) involved in – terlibat dalam

Involve as a verb

If you want to use involve as a verb, usually there is an indirect object:

I rarely involve myself in politics.

flag-of-indonesia Again, for Indonesians there is an easy translation.

to involve + someone + in + something – melibatkan … dalam …
