Follow-up activities

Here are a few ideas you can try as follow-up activities once you have completed the artificial intelligence conversation questions.

Writing – As this is an advanced topic, your students should be quite able to write in a proficient manner. Get them to choose one of the questions above and write about it in detail.

Debate – AI makes for a fantastic debate topic. Divide your class into 2 groups (or several more if it is a large class). And pit them against each other to debate a controversial question about artificial intelligence. One group should be for an idea and the other group against it (Yes and no).

You can use the worksheet above for ideas. Some examples are “Is AI good for the human race?”, “Should AI robots replace police officers?”, “Can AI be trusted?”, and “Could AI wipe out human existence?”.
