In this ESL lesson plan for adults and teens, students watch a short video report and do a viewing/listening exercise about shared autonomy and the future of robotics. It includes discussion questions and conversation activities about shared autonomy and robots/robotics. Students also learn some important vocabulary terms and phrases from the video. The post-viewing section includes an activity on preposition usage, follow-up discussion questions, and CCQ discussion based on a quote/phrase from the video. There is an additional film/TV show plot task included, an optional bonus activity, and a quiz & review section.
In the next 10 years, University of Oxford estimates that 80% of jobs in America are going to be partly or fully automated. "One of the exciting things about robotics from a business perspective is that they don't tire they don't go on holiday, they don't call in sick. So you actually save a lot of money" says AI Professor Sandra Wachter.
