Artificial Intelligence and the World of Work

ESL video-based lesson plan

Lesson Overview

This ESL lesson plan deals with the theme of artificial intelligence and the world of work.  In particular, artificial intelligence is changing how we work and how work is seen.   Students will be given the opportunity to discuss technology, automation, and their impacts on society and employment, using different language structures, such as the passive voice, to highlight the effects of technology on jobs and the economy. The ESL lesson is supported by the video  Robots in the Workplace, which was published by the Financial Times.

It focuses on practising key reading, speaking, collaboration and critical thinking skills.  If used as a flipped ESL lesson, you will need at least 90 minutes to complete this lesson. However, lessons can run up to 3 hours ( consider two  90-minute lessons or for university teachers to adjust as needed).

While targeting intermediate and upper-intermediate language learners of English, it is highly adaptable as it has been purposely designed to facilitate mixed-level classes. This includes targeting professionals in a tertiary institution such as a university or within a professional environment.
