Software and social robots that are fed constant streams of data have the greatest disruption potential for teaching and learning: it’s not just technology, it’s teachology. While we study mathematics on a computer, the computer can now study how we study and then make our learning experience so much more granular, adaptive and interactive. Together with sensors and learning management systems, Al can give teachers a real sense of how different students learn differently, where students get interested and where they get bored, where they advance and where they get stuck. Teachology can help adapt learning to different student needs and give learners greater ownership over what they learn, how they learn, where they learn and when they learn.
