Students are introduced to the three welfare models (selective, residual, and universal). They should also discuss how welfare technology could help solve possible future problems. A starting point could be society’s growing elderly population versus the shrinking total workforce. The class can subsequently discuss the consequences of such a societal trend and how welfare technology could help to remedy some of these problems. The project groups hand in a presentation of the three welfare models. The presentation could for example be created online with the tool Easelly, the link for which is included in the document.
The project groups should identify areas within welfare and public service where a welfare robot could potentially be implemented. The project groups design and develop a solution for the given issue. The project groups present their selected issue and the technical solution they have developed.
The teacher gives students a summative assessment of their presentations of the welfare models. Students prepare a presentation of their particular welfare task and solution proposal in the form of a welfare robot. Students also complete a self-evaluation form.
