INTELLIGENCE (THAT'S ENGLISH! MOD 11 UNIT 3)

  • Being good at school subjects like languages and maths is a sign of true intelligence.
  • How should parents and society treat very intelligent children?
  • Brains or beauty? Which brings greater success in life.
  • Which animals do you think of as being intelligent? What about birds and sea creatures?
Do you … ?
1 have to solve unexpected problems on a regular basis
2 think studying is a wise choice
3 regret not acting more wisely in a particular situation

Classify the statements into advantages and potential dangers of using technology, machines and robots. Add your own ideas.
  1. Machines can’t interpret feelings, so interaction is more dehumanised.
  2. We are too dependent on computers and technology, which is problematic if a machine breaks or crashes.
  3. Machines don’t make mistakes, people do.
  4. Workers are replaced by machines, which increases unemployment.
  5. People stop thinking about how to solve problems because machines can do it for them.
  6. Technology means more people have access to education, health care, etc.
  7. Artificial intelligence can benefit society in numerous ways but it must be controlled.
Watch this EuroNews video on gifted children: Being gifted has long been equated to being intelligent and having a high IQ. However, many scholars believe that students can also be gifted in the sense of having increased emotional or social intelligence. Being gifted can be a double-edged sword: smart students can get bored and frustrated if their classmates and teachers fail to engage with their special abilities.
