The new era of automated teaching promises an end to grouping children by year, as the personalised nature of the robots will enable pupils to learn new material at their own pace, rather than as part of a class.
“It will open up the possibility of an Eton or Wellington-style education for all,” Sir Anthony said.
“Everyone can have the very best teacher and it’s completely personalised; the software you’re working with will be with you throughout your education journey.”
He warned, however, that the new technology would have to be carefully introduced to avoid “infantilising” pupils and teachers.
As part of robot-led learning, teachers would adopt the role of “overseers”, monitoring the progress of individual pupils, leading non-academic activities and providing pastoral support, Sir Anthony said.
The efficiency of automated teaching would also mean that only 30 per cent of school time will be spent in class.
