What ET can do for Education

Students can have real time feedback whether the answer is right or not

There is no authority figure when a computer teachers a child – automatic transition from being taught to learning by myself happens
Easy to train/ equip a computer rather than train a teacher
Physical and cognitive workload of a teacher reduces – she/he now no more have to ‘perform’ every day in and day out
Teacher becomes facilitator of a pre-programmed structure
Automatic M&E of students’ performance
Reduces teachers’ work
  • Don’t have to invent questions or design assessments
  • Don’t have to correct test papers and track students’ progress
  • Don’t have to be a content expert (Can teach the topic without knowing the subject)
  • Can teach English without knowing English (becomes less teacher dependent)
