We are facing one of the great questions or concerns of today's society: What will happen to the robots? What positions will they occupy? Will they be better than humans? Will they overcome Artificial Intelligence (AI) to the human? ? These are questions that we are hearing more and more frequently in our daily lives and for which, unfortunately, we do not obtain a clear or convincing answer.
According to recent studies some professional profiles will eventually disappear. Today, robots occupy an 8% of jobs, a figure that in 2020 could go up to 26%.
Therefore, from the schools we must educate and train our students with these very present ideas, many of them will work in professions that do not exist yet, but what will happen to the teaching profession? Will it be a human or will it be a robot that inculcates these knowledge and values to our students?
Well, although we do not believe it and the tendency is to think otherwise, the profession of teacher occupies the position 356 of 366 in being able to be replaced by a robot, this means that professions such as cashier at a bank with the 11 position or insurance salesman with the 29 position are professions that are much more predisposed to disappear. But all these data are still numbers and statistics that bring us a little closer to the future reality, why can not there be an intermediate point between robots and humans?
In the classrooms, more and more, we are integrating technology to use it as a tool in our methodology, we help ourselves from online platforms, we use Virtual Reality, we personalize learning with devices, etc ... We are using tools that, even if they do not have a robot head, robot arms or robot legs, do not of being elements that have their part of Artificial Intelligence or self-learning.
Therefore, we ask ourselves; Are not we already beginning to live with them in the classroom? It is a reflection that we can begin to raise, but from the positive point of view, in which thanks to these tools and this technology allows us to create more complete learning environments.
Now, will it end up displacing that AI from our classroom? Surely not and that the teaching profession is so down on that statistic is due to a simple reason: Robots can be constant and tireless in their procedures, can personalize learning almost millimetrically among many students, their error rate in the answers is practically null, its self-learning and analysis is practically perfect but education is not just this, it's not just numbers, grades or answers, there is a human skill that AI can not address today.
If we go to the field of neuroeducation we can confirm that the emotional ingredient is fundamental for both the teacher and the learner. Humans we are not rational beings to dry, but rather, first emotional and then rational. And, in addition, social.
Our students like to learn as a group and like to learn from other people. Robots will never be able to match humans in this way. Irreplaceable factors such as the ability to inspire. Teaching facts and theories is one thing, but to relate the things you teach to everyday life is quite another.
Teachers are here to share their experiences in life, to relate to students from one human to another, to excite their students in any subject and to motivate and motivate each class they enter. Because the teacher is a generator of emotions and dynamics: a motivated teacher is a fundamental piece in the rules of teaching. And while artificial AI works on the ability of a robot to get excited, our students need a teacher LES EMOCIONE to be able to learn.
