Unit 1 DEMO Session 3
Session length and engagement with your online classmates depends on YOU, so proceed to the next session whenever you’re ready. Remember that your peers await your contributions. Help them learn with you and from you!
Session 3 PART 1: Discussion
Think and respond to these questions (ToK link — Economics, Science & Technology, creativity in Literature):
- What comes first, human ingenuity in literature or development of technology in reality (think of the various fields you researched!)?
- How does SCI-FI literature contribute to our understanding of potential effects of technology development?
- How does literature encourage innovation in technology?
You may want to write out your ideas first in a bullet-point list. Practice your talk a few times. Try to speak rather than read a prepared text.
