The development of science is going to make waves to kids who sometimes eats snow with a hope to catch a cold and stay at home to play their adorable computer games.
Verison suggested that a pupil has a fantastic possibility to be present at school even if he/she is ill… remotely. And it is not a commonplace Skype service. It is much more interesting and not so… virtual. This is your digital-clone. Your substitute in a robot disguise! Just imagine! A pupil can control it remotely sitting in their bed in pajamas and sipping a hot tea with lemon at the same time watching and participating in classes. The problem arising is that a kid should be very conscientious and yearning for getting new attainments, otherwise, he/she needs control.
Who knows, possibly, in some years there will be only robots at schools, including robot-teachers. Why spending time going to school, when you can do it at home while not depriving yourselves of meeting and socializing with your classmates?!
