Javier Villamil (Small chance) says
I consider that being a teacher is much more than transmitting content or information, education is a social process that involves empathy, curiosity, solidarity, among other values ​​and emotions, things that cannot be given in front of a screen but in human interaction . It is useless to learn to dominate the world around us if we are not able to act humanely and ethically, not only between ourselves but with the planet and animals, otherwise we will continue to build increasingly efficient death factories. Of course, technology is here to stay and the challenge is involved in educational processes to have better results, but the guide that a teacher assumes is irreplaceable for an AI. Cheers

Watch whats going on in Africa, teachers are a must in the traditional teaching methods but if you apply the question to "learning" out of the traditional scope, robots will be a better facilitator of knowledge because the can "coach" individually while a professor tries a group approach
