The kids are certainly paying attention, could a robot be the answer to teaching

To introduce educating toys is not a new idea. The problem lies in even more "synchronization" of individual minds. A human teacher can notice individual weaknesses and strengths and lend a supporting hand where necessary and appropriate to make an individual keep up or get the best of an individual. Will artificial intelligence be able to realize the full abilities or disabilities and interfere in a constructive way?

That is how it should happen in theory, but reality very rare, too many students for the class, for individual tutoring, those with little ability to learn are at the back of the classroom out the way. your thinking would make an excellent teacher.

What else should I've told my students when I was still active in (Thai) teachers education? That they shouldn't even try?

But the topic of this thread is, whether artificial intelligence (as the teacher) can make up for those deficits you mentioned - or might even worsen those.

a long way off or might never happen, robots replacing teachers on a one to one in the classroom

programmes that are currently being developed will learn to read the brains and facial expressions of pupils, adapting this method of communication to what works best for that individual. which could end to grouping children by year, as the personalised nature of the robots will enable pupils to learn new material at their own pace, rather than as part of a class.

would be good news that Everyone can have the very best teacher and it's completely personalised.
after all how much was the cost of the tablets idea.
