Future classroom will be online, virtual – and taught by robots

“Our new survey has revealed some surprising predictions for the classroom of the future for schools, universities and colleges alike. The survey found that in five years’ time 20% of respondents believe that learning will be done through virtual reality, while a quarter think teaching will be delivered remotely by tutors who might be thousands of miles away. Perhaps more surprisingly is the potential emergence of robots in the role of teacher or lecturer. When asked about whether they expect to see robots delivering lessons, 7% are confident that this will happen in the next five years, rising to 11% for ten years’ time. Almost a fifth (18%) think it will be reality in 20 years.” (via Jisc)
