Children's thoughts on teaching automation

Will robots take over teaching at schools?  What aspects of teaching will they be good or bad at?  This video is based on a series of vox pops that invited children to tell us about their thoughts on robots in general, what it would be like to have a robot teacher, and what might a robot be like in twenty years from now.

'I think they're quite intelligent' 

'Weird'

'Might be a bit better at teaching becuase they know more answers to things'
