Our teacher gave us this line in the end of our assignment (Project):

"As part of an educational advisory team you have been asked to create an educational showcase about an emerging technology."

But as I am not a native speaker, I am just taking it as like they ask us questions about technology and about our project and our topic related questions.

How to interpret it?

    The word "showcase" needs to be clarified by your teacher. Ask your teacher: what type of presentation or exhibit would he/she consider to be a "showcase"? Mar 26, 2015 at 5:02
  • @ARG The key point is you have been asked to create a showcase. That sentence doesn't ask you a question. Depending on the context, have been asked could be used ether to tell you to create a showcase, or to discuss about a showcase you have already made. Considering your reaction, the first is likelier (i.e. they ask you to create a new showcase). May 25, 2015 at 0:01

I think what you need to understand is the definition of showcase used:

2) anything displaying someone or something to good advantage ⇒ "the revue was a showcase for new talent"

So it is about creating an educational display (of some kind) to positively describe some topic. That topic needs to be about an emerging technology.

part of an educational advisory team is the point of view you are being asked to take. Something like:

If you were an educational advisor, what kind of educational showcase about an emerging technology, would you create?

You are being asked to answer that question.

  • But, it depends on what the teacher meant by "showcase" right ? It could mean creating a presentation, or making a model or taking a session or a class, or anything else. If you ask me, the teacher should be wee bit more specific
