This product is one of my most appreciated by my students.
I use this document with my Technology Unit and a document related to a Black Mirror episode. Students really engage in those activities because it is directly linked to their reality; they are constantly surrounded by technologies and it can become overwhelming with time.
This document contains a text and questions related to the story.
The text is an explanation of the origins and the used of an app called REPLIKA. Replika replicates with AI technologies your (or someone you lost) conversations habits and automatizes it. In other words, it's an app that was created to engage a conversation with you.
The questions are all related to the text; what are your students' habits with technology? are they going too far? how is it possible to feel emotions towards a system?, etc.
It is a good tool to identify students' difficulties in reading comprehension or to connect a short activity with technologies units. It would also be a good introduction activity for an unit on the creation of an app.
