You can see the government'spoint of view. Whywastea year training someone to be a teacher when everyone knows it only takes half that? I mean, what's to learn? Anyhalfwitcan stand in front of a class of 13-year-olds and teach them basic maths. You justhandthe kids a calculator and tell them toget on withit. And if that doesn't work, you start shouting at them. Easy.

So easy,in fact, that you're probably starting to wonder if maybe six months isn't a ridiculouslyindulgentwaste of time. How about you get fired from RBS on a Friday afternoon and start teaching the following Monday?

In fact, who needs a real teacher when now you can just as easily get a robot to do the job?


A professor at Tokyo University has just built a life-like robot teacher,tenderlynamed Saya, who comes pre-programmed with six different emotions – five more than the average government minister – and can easilydeal withthedemandsof taking the register and keeping the kids under control. "Children even start crying when they arescolded," Saya's creator, Hiroshi Kobayashi, saidproudly.

It's not hard to imagine the excitement all this couldcausein the Department for Children, Schools and Families,not leastbecause Kobayashi also went on to say: "The robot has no intelligence. It has no ability to learn. It has noidentity. It is just atool." As this just happens to be the DCSF's idea of the perfect teacher, it's onlya matter of timebefore it comes here.

Answer the quesitions, add your answers below as a comment.

1. What do you think about this idea?

2. Do you think robot teachers would be advantegous for anything?

3. Can robot teachers can replace real teachers? Why or why not?
