Too many kids in the world are still suffering through really boring lessons. And look how many graduate from English classes without being able to say a word!
A decade ago students started turning to Youtube to help, which has led to empty university lecture theaters and billions of views for kids channels.
In the past year kids have figured out that instead of a 30 minute Youtube video they can learn the same maths equation or English topic in a 15 second Tik Tok.
Now Tik Tok has overtaken
Of course the next step is AI, Aritfical Intelligence.
All those zoom lessons during the pandemic have been recorded by the teaching companies and the AI analyses which teachers got the best reactions, which phrases or expression got the most clarity for students, which styles of teaching got the best results. And very soon these systems will be online for everyone to use.
Just like there used to be 3 people in a 747 cockpit. Now there are just two.
Musicians & singers used to say they were safe as AI can’t do human emotions. Last week Tencent released 1,000 AI songs. One of them got 100 Million Streams!
So the AI is coming into teaching and just like Youtube has done for university lectures, it will do the same for English learning for most kids.
Average teachers will get replaced first of course.
And then for great teachers, that’s you by the way 😀, there are a couple of things you need to think about if you are planning on earning a living beyond the next few years:
- If your current teaching gets replaced by tech, like the 747 crew and musicians before you, what income producing assets are you currently investing in to give you an income in the future? (Imagine playing the board game “Monopoly” and only ever collecting $200 for passing “Go” and never buying any assets. You wouldn’t get far.) You need a licensed professional to give you specific advice and we also have Module 8 of the Genki Business Course which has a whole rundown on investment education for teachers showing you what questions to ask your advisors.
- What new new skills can you learn that won’t be replaced by AI before the time you plan to retire? Teaching bigger group classes? Teaching Self Development & Growth Mindset? Teaching confident speaking skills? Teaching C1/C2 level adults? We have trainings on all of these in the Genki English System. There are lots more of course. Staying the same isn’t an option so choose the ones you love and enjoy!
