Should robots be allowed to take over the role of being a teacher in the future of work?

I think that the answer would be no because even though robots are suppost to be superintelligent and could easily teach a lesson.There lack of true emotions in a robot ,which would mean that it could be difficult to engage and get enthusiatic with the children in a subject/lesson. Also not all pupils are the same and only by getting to know there personalities you would be able to teach them in a way that makes them engage better in the subject and to be more ethusiatic about it ,which would not be possible for a robot as they do not hold emotions like any human.

    NO!!!!! I think this because if you had a robot teacher than they wouldn't have feelings and so they won't understand your feelings. EVERYTHING WOULD BE CHAOS!!!!!! Also I wouldn't want to be taught by a robot because they have no life story so they couldn't tell you about when they were at school or something about an adventure they went on.

    Hello quirky_oboe what an interesting question you have looked into. I think this is a question that is on everybody's mind about whether robots are going to take over jobs. Here I see my opinion.

    I don't think robots should take over teaching because if a child gets stuck on something they are learning in class the robot will be able to explain how do do it but they will explain it really technical and not easy for a child to understand. The next thing that I think why they shouldn't use a robot abs a teacher because they won't be able to disapline children properly because children won't feel scared of them because they are just bits of metal and other bits put together and made so they can talk. Another problem is that they could break down or something could go wrong meaning they would have to get fixed and if this happened frequently, children would have a lack of schooling and wouldn't learn much.

    There are a few reasons why it would be good to have a robot as a teacher. They wouldn't need a break because they won't need food and they won't get tired. This would be good because they would never get behind on marking children's work.

    Thank you bringing up this interesting question
    Thank you for reading

      Similarly to your other comment in response to reasoning_honeydew you have shown an excellent speaking and listening by engaging with another BNC member and swapping ideas. Well done!

    Great but short post! I agree that it would not be very nice to have a robot teacher, as it may also scare little children and sometimes technology can go wrong and make mistakes and that could lead to teaching students wrong information.

    I agree as once l read something about a robot runing away from the person who made him and was later found. So however silly this may sound it is fairly dangerous for robots to make the stuff we eat as they could have feelings.
