Hello, every one. I’d like to predict Education in the year 2050.Schools will still exist at that time. But it will not be a place for us to study all year round. We will come to school only once or twice a week .
It will be a place for us to hold meetings and discuss something. When we want to communicate, we will come to the school. Most of the time, we will stay at home and learn all our subjects on the Internet, of course though a computer.
We can sit , or even lie in bed to study. It
will be more comfortable and convenient. ( Next: Choose a topic and discuss )
Read the prediction about life in 2050 and use the prompts to write a sentence summarizing each predictions. In 2050, we will learn about people from their web pages with five senses.
Learn about people / web page/ five senses
In 2050, everyone in the world will have a personal web page with their information on it. These web pages will use the five senses: sight , touch, smell, taste and hearing. This way, before you meet someone, you can check out his or her web page to learn about the person.
In 2050, the demand for water will lead to war.
demand for water / lead to war In 2050, there won’t be enough water for the world’s population. Because of changes in climate and increase in farming, some places will be drier and people will not be able to produce enough food. The demand for water will create problems between countries and these problems may lead to war.
In 2050, the structure of the population will change. structure / population/ change
By 2050, the population of the world will come to the highest point, probably around 8.5 billion people, and then it will start to decline. The structure of the population will also change. Most people will be 60 years old.
In small groups , discuss which predictions in the text you think are good things, which are bad things. Give your reasons. Example: A: I think it’s a good idea to have a web page with five senses. B: I agree. C: I disagree. I don’t want to put my photos on a web page.
