Artificial intelligence and the teaching profession
ARTIFICIAL intelligence (AI) is a reality of the world and many workers are being displaced by machines in an effort by employers to reduce production costs as well as improve efficiency. The implementation of sophisticated technology in the classroom and workplace will only increase as the technology advances. What we have to guard against is the way in which that technology is implemented to ensure that the personal touch of the teachers’ role is never compromised or undermined. No machine will ever replace the teacher despite the promise that the technology holds out.
