For the motion
I would like to put forth my views in favour of the motion “The Schools of the Future Will Have No Books and No Teachers!”
The emergence of digital technologies like computers, laptops, mobile phones, etc. has brought about a lot of changes in the way education is imparted and received. Now itself, we can see how important the electronic gadgets and internet have become.
We learn so many things through Google, YouTube and other platforms. The concept of online classes is getting more acknowledgement than ever. The internet speed is improving with time and usage.
More and more people are being drawn towards the limitless possibilities of learning online. Gradually, we might see the schools teaching the students online with soft copies of books.
When the robots become a part of our lives, we shall see the time when the schools will have no real books and no human teachers, instead we will have online books and robots as teachers!
