No, it may be more efficent but it wouldn't teach us to communicate with other humans. I belive that they would see that.

No it wont. As we see, technology teaches us a lot because of the internet sites, which were written by teachers, and the others who are expert on their job. Ergo, maybe teachers wont teach us directly, but then, they would still teach us in a matter or so.

Side: No

The occasional laughs, the scolding of the teacher, the student with his puppy face. The individual teacher teaching in his/her own style, the students making fun of them. These experiences can never be replaced by machines, and the relationship a student has with a teacher can never be replaced by a machine. Yes, teachers may be removed and machines may be put in their place, but teachers can never be REPLACED by a piece of metal.

Side: No
