Welcome to IB English B PlugIn Unit 01
Theme: Human Ingenuity
Topic: Innovation in Technology
Thanks for joining this collaborative, flexible learning unit! Let’s embark together on a fascinating journey into innovative technology and ponder how it impacts our lives. Ready? Set? GO!
In a cohort of enthusiastic learners from various schools and many countries, you will wrestle with some enduring understandings about technology and innovation. [BTW – click on any word to highlight it and TAP your Mac track pad with three fingers to access the dictionary]
You will discuss possible answers to inquiry questions and you will inevitably pose more questions yourselves. Ponder them, absorb the variety of peer perspectives, and reflect on the broad learning experience, the knowledge, and the skills that you will gain or hone during this time: for exams, for critical thinking, for lifelong learning.
Check out the list of activities:
- Introduce yourself and meet your forum group. Download the FLIPGRID.com app to your phone & familiarise yourself with it.
- Read two articles and share newly gained knowledge.
- Practice deconstructing a text type.
- Collaborate on a mini-research.
- Listen to a reading of a short story.
- Watch a film adaptation of another short story.
