Thus, 64% believe that teaching children in schools with the help of AI is impossible, and according to 20%, AI will never replace a teacher. At the same time, 25% believe that teaching children in schools with the help of artificial intelligence is possible in the future, another 44% of respondents are against allowing AI to teach, since school is “not only about knowledge, but also education.”
Russians’ belief in the professionalism of teachers echoes their school dreams of a profession. As Weber data showed, in childhood, 14% of adults wanted to choose a career as a teacher.
What do Russians say about using smartphones in class? Online polls show that 72% support handing over gadgets to teachers before class, while 25% are against the practice.
In general, the use of smartphones at school is noted by 44% of respondents as an acceptable practice for communicating with parents/in case of emergency. Another 33% is acceptable only during breaks, 12% is unacceptable and is acceptable to use in any cases – 11%.
