Teachers need a clearing house for information on available courseware to mske the process easier.

I've also seen good leverage by teachers around using learning web sites created by external sources... Why reinvent the wheel if it's available for free to you?

Once we get away from the testing mentality of the "Every child left behind Act", I think there is a huge creative urge among good teachers to expand the ways they teach and to use high tech to get lessons across.

This won't be the province of the textbook vendors. School districts are coming together to create their own courseware, saving enough cash to pay for a lot of the electronics in the process.

We need the politicians to get out of the way, and to ignore the importunings of the vendors and the unions. Teaching shoul;d be the responsibility of the teachers!

@Jim, i suspect that the educational system is going to have to scramble to keep up but i'm optimistic about the chances of success. I'm seeing a lot of evolution in the educational system.

@Jim, Of course, our educational system brought us this far, and will rather expand and develop if need be to take us beyond.

@tirlapur, You are right, I,m so sure we have so many robot engineers or robot coordinators in different applications but much more than that, we should expect to see more people pick up careers in this field as robots find more acceptances and applications in our daily life.

@Hailey, certainly yes, robots are good. A homebot made by LG to clean rug is an excellent machine that can help you clean your rug even when you are not at home and also saves time is definitely a good thing but for a period of till, that takes away a job opportunity for your human cleaner which will have to spend time to find another job if at all he finds someone that does not have the robot or spend time changing his career so as to earn a living.

@ Lily, I certainly agree with you, there is no way robots would do more work for us that somd people would not go jobless. Even if we all pick up a career in robotic engineering, many people will still not have work to do.

@tirlapur, I,m not sure if any company that wants to be on the cutting edge would make such promise to their labour force that the introduction of robots will not lead to unemployment.

It's a good point. Still, will our education system meet the need?
