WARM-UP & VIDEOS
This lesson about technology starts with a warm-up activity. Students read a definition of the term augmented reality and look at its three examples (e.g. Snapchat filters and lenses). They explain how the examples work and talk about their experience using them. If they don’t know what the examples are, students guess what they might do. Then, they watch an ad for smart contact lenses and discuss some questions. They brainstorm some possible applications for the technology and share whether they have seen similar technologies in films. After that, they watch the second video to find out some more details about the contact lenses. Finally, they share which part of the video surprised them most.
This part of the lesson starts with a discussion about the technology presented in the videos. Students need to read six short comments and decide whether they agree with them and to what extent. The comments refer to some of the details of the smart contact lenses, as well as to general ideas about AR. Then, students look at the list of some possible applications of the lenses mentioned in the videos (e.g. night vision, virtual teleprompter). They discuss whether the applications could be useful in everyday life or as a tool for professionals. In the final part of this lesson about technology, students talk about augmented reality. They also look at some ideas of using AR that are currently being developed, and discuss their implications.
