Learning will be computer-simulated, distant and customized



Ray Kurzweil : writer, futurist
Most learning will be accomplished through intelligent, adaptive courseware presented by computer-simulated teachers. In the learning process, human adults will fill the counselor and mentor roles instead of being academic instructors. These assistants will be often not physically present, and help students remotely. Students still will learn together and socialize, though this is often done remotely via computers.
