Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence

Today, we are going to talk about artificial intelligence. It is supposedly the future. Artificial intelligence, or AI, is intelligence displayed by machines created by man. One could say that artificial intelligence is a way of making a computer-controlled robot, a computer, or software, think intelligently, in a similar manner to how humans think. Certainly, AI is leading to workers’ jobs being replaced by robots. However, in order to do all this, it will need even more IT programmers.

FUNCTIONAL ENGLISH - hair and beauty embedded E3 / L1 workpack

FUNCTIONAL ENGLISH - hair and beauty embedded E3 / L1 workpack

Having taught Functional Skills English within an FE setting, I understand how difficult it can be to reach students within a curriculum area and to encourage engagement with English. Often not being specialists in those areas ourselves as English Teachers, embedding can be a challenge. My largest challenge was often with students of hair and beauty and so I devised this work pack which worked fantastically well. This pack embeds E3 and L1 English elements into areas of hair and beauty such as face shapes, hair disasters and nail art, incorporating celebrity culture. This pack builds as you move through it, looking at areas such as reading for information, proofreading, identifying correct homophones and descriptive / persuasive writing. I found with my groups that this did not need to be a taught session but rather they ran with it themselves and engaged independently with it, leaving me to act in a supportive role rather than a lead delivery role. This is down to the group and paired activities within the pack, discussion topics and the options for students to make choices and to design their own nail art. This pack encourages a positive attitude towards English and helps students to see how it can help in their chosen industry. IHope it helps.

Christmas and the advent calendar

Christmas and the advent calendar

Christmas is coming. Yes, it’s that time of year folks. So having an advent calendar is the ultimate countdown to Christmas. It’s a calendar that you hang up in December. There are 24 windows or doors on it. Each day you open a different window on it, so if it’s the 8th December, you open the 8 window, which can reveal a chocolate. It’s something that most of us have done since we were knee high. The advent calendar starts on the 1st December and ends on the 24th December. Traditional advent calendars show various religious scenes, but they could also show different aspects of Christmas, bible verses, or different winter scenes.

Christmas cat anagram puzzle power point

Christmas cat anagram puzzle power point

This animated Power Point has ten clues to solve. On each page three Christmas trees are displayed with baubles containing a letter on them . When you unscramble the baubles a word is formed containing the word cat ( catastrophe, catalogue, certificate etc). Only one of the trees contains the correct baubles to solve the clue. The star at the top of the tree will revolve to reveal the correct answer. All answers are given at the end. The audience is invited to think of other words which contain a cat within them somewhere... A word document is included which could be used alongside the Power point to record answers and explore further possibilities. This resource is intended to enhance spelling strategies (especially looking for smaller words within trickier spellings) and will be particularly appropriate to use on the run up to Christmas. Suitable for ages 10+

KS3 Merchant of Venice Homework Pack

KS3 Merchant of Venice Homework Pack

If your school is anything like mine, your parents want homework to be set but you don't want to have to spend a ton of time creating relevant homeworks or marking all this extra work. This homework pack is designed to be challenging, useful and something that students can mark themselves (in or outside of lessons). It's a four-week homework pack, with three sections per homework: 1. A vocabulary section (both important and ambitious vocabulary e.g. everything from 'forfeit' to 'multifaceted'). 2. Practise breaking down a quotation. 3. An extended writing task (mostly analysis but there's a creative writing task too), with success criteria to aid in peer-/self-assessment.
