The class plan for the first week back:
Today we have been speaking about robots, computer and machines, and how they have affected our world, and how they will continue to affect it, in relation to jobs. We began by discussing jobs that have been taken over already by machines, and what types of job are under threat.
We then focused specifically on robots in education, and the role they could play. We completed Use of English part 2 about a computerised teaching assistant, and then discussed robots in education in more detail relating to: critical thinking, the teacher job market, factual insight, technological advancement and feedback.
Homework: Please complete the reading part 6 task handed out in class.
Today we focused on Use of English part 3: word formation. We began with a word maze, to which students had to find the common rule to escape. Then we completed page 73 of the trainer, which focuses on spelling, identifying word form correctly. Students then worked in pairs against each other in a game of word formation Bingo.
Homework: Please complete page 74, the exam task and the essay question handed out in class.
