A Learning Activity is a strategy a teacher chooses to actively
engage students in learning a concept or skill using a digital tool/resource.
In this learning activity, students will be introduced to automation through automated grocery shopping. Students begin the activity by reviewing their most recent grocery shopping experience. Then they are invited to brainstorm ways they think the traditional grocery shopping experience would be different if it was automated. Students will watch a video about an automated grocery packing warehouse. Finally, they will describe aspects of automating the grocery shopping experience that increases efficiency.
The students will describe how automation works to increase the efficiency of the grocery shopping experience.
This should be used as an introduction to automation.
Have the students complete the graphic organizer listing three aspects of automating the grocery shopping experience that increases efficiency.
