Why teachers are necessary in a world of tech

Recently, somebody told me tech would replace teachers

That will never happen.

Tech can, and will likely be a huge part of education

But it will never fully replace a teacher

Students are lazy.

I don't mean this as an insult. We naturally are unable to push ourselves as quickly as we like. If you've ever taken an online course, you know.

Humans are best at explaining

For some people, Googling is enough. YouTube videos get the job done. For most, learning through those means is impossible. Some topics are just too complicated

School is more than curriculum

Teachers can teach good morals and serve as great role models for a student. Learning through tech should never replace those things.

Don't get me wrong.

I love technology in education. Huge fan. I just know that teachers are here to stay.

I agree here. Huge fan of ed-tech. Taken a number of MOOCs, but have to say there's nothing like an in person class. Not to say there shouldn't be a lot of changes to how teaching is done in the classroom though
