Technology can be a tool for teachers and students, but it cannot replace the role of a trained and committed human teacher. As parents have come to appreciate during the pandemic, in-person teaching inspires students much more than the Zoom school. Technology is nothing more than an increase for a teacher. It can help the learning process, but it certainly can't replace the teacher's role.
It is very obvious that technology helps students in their learning and plays a crucial role in the field of education. But, as of now, it doesn't have the power to replace teachers because human interaction cannot be replaced by computers and human skills cannot be taught with technology. Will technology replace teachers? The answer is “no”. However, we can safely say that the teaching profession is further improved and improved by technology.
Technology can be a great complement to the existing education system, helping to connect students and teachers from anywhere and, at the same time, providing useful technological tools in the arsenal. They can't give a child what they need. Students need the love, the transaction, the relationship between students and teachers, and the collaboration that an AI can't provide. While technology helps a lot in the learning environment, it hasn't fully assumed the role of teacher.
Since technology isn't going anywhere and does more good than harm, adapting is the best course of action. Right now, educational technology developers often (and should) seek feedback from product users and former staff educators, but this information alone isn't enough. Several investigations have been carried out and it has been demonstrated time and again that teachers bring about a change that no technology can achieve. But at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, researchers at the school's Institute for Language Technologies believe they are exploring the types of technologies that could help even those most sophisticated tasks through natural language processing, the science of how computers can interact with the human language.
Education Week has published a collection of articles from this blog, along with new material, in the form of an e-book. However, developers and advocates of virtual education are seeing discussions emerging across the country about the use of their technology to replace teachers. I think technology will help level the playing field for many talented children who have neurological differences. When technology is able to reliably measure learning and make it practical for teachers, the promise of data-based decision-making will be realized.
Had it not been for technology, students would have been deprived of their main right: education. Old classroom teaching is challenged by the introduction of online platforms such as Zoom, WebEx, Google Meet, microsoft teams and several educational applications. All of the above characteristics were for the Covid test, where teaching was influenced and initiated by technology and teachers embraced it with open arms.
