This is a short article in support of a fifteen minute podcast. The headline made me thing of that old adage, "If a computer can replace a teacher, it should." Of course, the point being made here is that it can't. Why not? "By freeing up time, teachers can better concentrate on the human skills of creativity and social-emotional growth... Think of it as a personal assistant, so that the teacher, as a professional, can truly dedicate the maximum amount of time catering to every single child’s need. That will be the pinnacle." I hear this line of reasoning a lot, but not so much thought is given about jut what a teacher's job looks like after most of the actual work is being done by an AI. I've argued in the past that the concept of the 'teacher' - which is essentially a bundling of a large number of different roles - doesn't make much sense any more.
