The future of education?

The future is apparently a lot closer than I thought. Robots are teaching English in an elementary school in Daegu, South Korea. Ok, so technically speaking it’s not a real automaton, as they are being remotely controlled by teachers in the Philippines. And I can’t help but wonder what this would mean for real teachers if this phenomenon really starts to catch on.

Still, it’s pretty cool, and just think about all those story ideas you can generate. You can turn it into a sci-fi action story where the robot teachers go rogue (highly original, I know). Mix it with a dash of teenage drama, get some beautiful girl to fall in love with a handsome cyborg teacher and who knows? You might end up on the bestseller list! People are bound to get sick of vampires and werewolves soon, right?

On second thought, that’s probably not a story I’m going to write any time soon.
