The future ... will there be a place for human teachers?

The future ... will there be a place for human teachers? Looks at the possible evolution of virtual teachers.

Abstract

Looks at the possible evolution of virtual teachers. They could be designed to teach any subject, while automatically adapting their teaching style to a student's learning style. Use of “plug‐ins” would make it easy to change personalities, language, student profiles as well as updating courseware. Virtual teachers would be a progression of remote course management, or virtual‐learning systems currently being used on traditional campuses to augment classroom teaching. A new breed of human teacher with new skills in designing and managing V‐teaching environments will evolve. They will be experts in designing programs that clearly indicate precise direction to the student as he progresses. What the virtual human will do is make complexity transparent. They will keep up with all the technical stuff, while the others negotiate with them for the things of life that they want to know about.
