VOCABULARY FOR DESCRIBING IMAGES
In the warm-up activity, students discuss some questions about their experience with creating and modifying images. Then, they look at four pictures and match them with their descriptions. They also need to match some words from the texts (e.g. cropped, crisp, saturated, retouched) with their meanings. After that, they do a speaking activity in which they practise describing images using the new vocabulary. They also have to briefly discuss what they like or don’t like about the images and what they could be used for. At this point of the lesson, students learn that the images they were describing were created by an AI image generator.
VIDEOS & SPEAKING
While watching the first video, students need to take notes about the AI image generator called DALL-E. After the video, they share their thoughts on the ideas from the video. They also discuss what the link between the name of the AI (DALL-E) and a famous Spanish painter is. Then, they need to brainstorm some applications for AI images generators, and discuss whether they think the images are art. Next, they look at the images created by DALL-E again and try to come up with descriptions that might have been used as prompts for the AI. They can also use a free image generator to practise advanced vocabulary for describing images further. The link is provided in the teacher’s version and the e-lesson plan. Finally, students watch the video about an art contest which was won by an AI and look at some comments referring to it. The comments cover the topics of art and AI tools. Students need to say whether they agree with the comments or not and explain their views.
