It's not about teaching what the future will bring alone, robots in classrooms are a highly impactful learning tool that provides the students with a multidisciplinary practical experience of theories in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math - STEM, and even arts in some cases.
In the modern day and age, students are more responsive to interactive learning than before. Interactive white boards, or smart boards, help teachers provide visual aids that fit the students' expectations and diminish explanation time, while keeping it highly beneficial across the classroom for all students.
One teacher can teach 20 students, but one teacher and 5 computers can create an individualized learning experience. Using an educational software where students have access to videos and virtual simulation tools, they are able to experiment better and create the learning experience they seek to have and never leave a question unanswered.
