1 BATX - LET'S WRITE A POEM

Writing a poem from the scratch is a difficult task; only poets can do it and only great poets can do it well. However, some poet's works can be excellent sources of inspiration; so there we go: this time we are going to use some visual poems by the Catalan poet Joan Brossa (1919-1998).

I want to thank the Fundació Joan Brossa for letting me use them.



Visit the Fundació Brossa education service blog LABERINTS BROSSIANS.

BATXILLERAT: Robotic Human Intelligence

Here are two things I expect you to do: First, watch Ken Goldberg's lecture called 4 lessons from robots about being human. Once you've watched the lecture, choose one of the four lessons and say why you think is important.


And second, read this interview published in the backpage section of the newspaper La Vanguardia last Oct 11th, 2018: Los robots demuestran que los humanos somos insustituibles. Now, you have to choose two of the questions and answers and say why you think they are relevant.

In both cases you'll need to use Goldberg's ideas and reasons to support your election.
