Read the text and answer the questions that follow. What are the advantages and disadvantages of having a robot for a teacher? Having a robot for a teacher can have both advantages and disadvantages. Let’s explore them! One advantage of having a robot teacher is that they can teach us new things about technology. Robots are programmed to know much about electronics, computer science, and artificial intelligence. They can help us learn important skills for the future job market. For example, they can teach us how to programme robots and use technology at a young age. This can prepare us for careers in STEM fields like computer programming and software engineering. Plus, robots can teach us in remote locations, so we can still access education even if we live far away. However, there are also some disadvantages to having a robot teacher. One disadvantage is that robots may not be able to connect with us emotionally as a human teacher can. They might not understand our feelings or be able to show empathy. Another disadvantage is that robots have limitations in their teaching abilities. They might not be able to recognise our voices or emotions accurately. Plus, if all our education is based on computer programmes, we might miss out on the personal touch and creativity that human teachers bring to the classroom. In conclusion, having a robot for a teacher has its advantages and disadvantages. While robots can teach us important skills and provide education in remote areas, they may not be able to connect with us emotionally as human teachers can. It’s important to consider both the benefits and limitations of having a robot teacher in our education system. Choose the correct answer. Listen and answer the questions that follow. Script: Robots, or artificial intelligence, can sometimes be helpful but can’t replace teachers completely. Think about GPS in your car. It can give you information at the right time to help you get from one place to another, but it doesn’t actually make you learn better. In fact, it makes you learn less. AI can help you perform better, but it can’t help you develop and grow as a person.   When it comes to personal growth and understanding, having a real person who cares about you is super important. Computers can’t understand what matters to you or make you care about new things. They don’t have emotions or feelings. That’s why having someone who knows you well, understands your interests, and can show that they care is crucial. This person can guide you, mentor you, and help you grow.   Using technology like AI can be helpful for certain things, like getting directions, but it can’t replace the role of a teacher when it comes to personal growth and understanding. Teachers are more than just sources of information. They are there to support and guide you, to help you become the best version of yourself. So, while robots may have their uses, they can never fully replace the importance of a caring and knowledgeable teacher in your life. advantages  (noun)Definition: beneficial or favourable factors or circumstancesExample: One advantage of having a robot teacher is that they can teach us new things about technology. artificial intelligence  (noun)Definition: the ability of machines to perform tasks that would normally require human intelligence, such as learning, problem-solving, and decision-making.Example: Siri and Alexa are examples of artificial intelligence. creativity (noun)Definition: the use of imagination or original ideas to create somethingExample: If all our education is based on computer programmes, we might miss out on the personal touch and creativity that human teachers bring to the classroom. crucial  (adjective)Definition: extremely important or necessary.Example: It is crucial to wear a seatbelt while driving. disadvantages (noun)Definition: unfavourable factors or circumstancesExample: However, there are also some disadvantages to having a robot teacher. empathy  (noun)Definition: the ability to understand and share the feelings of othersExample: Robots may not be able to connect with us emotionally like a human teacher can. knowledgeable  (adjective)Definition: having a lot of knowledge or information about a particular subject or area.Example: My teacher is very knowledgeable about history. limitations (noun)Definition: restrictions or constraintsExample: Robots might have limitations in their teaching abilities. mentor  (noun)Definition: a trusted advisor or guide who provides support, advice, and encouragement to help someone achieve their goals.Example: My mentor helped me prepare for my job interview. programming  (noun)Definition: the process of giving instructions to a computer or robot to perform specific tasksExample: She enjoys learning about programming and creating her own games.
