FOR STUDENTS AGED 13 AND ABOVE

What makes us human? Is it something we're born with, or something we learn? Explore the idea of humanity through its opposite, AI.

Consider how you would feel being cared for by an AI through the tv show Humans and consider how much we can trust something we've enslaved through the film Ex Machina (R13). We may even begin to look at what happens when we lose control with films like The Matrix and some vintage sci-fi short stories.

We'll use these texts to draft pieces of writing for our writing folios, to record personal responses for independent reading and to spring into information literacy (research).
