Relative Strengths of Teachers and Smart Machines: Towards an Augmented Task Sharing

Michael Burkhard, Sabine Seufert, Josef Guggemos

Abstract

In education, smart machines (e.g., chatbots or social robots) have the potential to support teachers in the classroom in order to improve the quality of teaching. From a teacher's point of view, smart machines also pose a challenge because the presence of smart machines in the classroom questions traditional teacher and student roles. This paper presents a theoretical basis for the use of smart machines in education. It describes the relative strengths of teachers and smart machines and presents them in a framework, which makes a proposal for an augmented task sharing. In light of human augmentation, the framework proposes ways in which teachers can position themselves with regard to smart machines in a complementary and mutually reinforcing way. It also has implications for knowledge that is necessary for teachers to play an active role in the digital transformation.
