5.6 A Digital Teacher or Independent Studies

At the beginning of the school year, the teacher decides which chapters and topics will be covered after reviewing the textbooks and knowing the allotted hours. During each lesson the teacher gives a summary of the information which will be covered. Because the teacher understands the material thoroughly, the teacher is able to answer additional questions about it.

If it is possible both to make automatic summaries (of the covered material) and to have search engines answer questions, then the teaching of a theoretical subject could be automated or in any case a sufficient digital teacher could be offered as help with independent studies.
