EdTech as a Disruptor in ELT

I recently came across a blog entry about ELT from a couple of years ago that made me step back and take a look at the changes in the industry. “Edtech” certainly has become the buzzword, and ELT is no exception. While the tech wizards are furiously working on AI to algorithmize everything, can they one day really replace teachers? We already know of many apps that aid and even attempt to teach language, altogether removing the middleman, i.e., us teachers. Is that where ELT is headed?

Here’s the blog entry that brought on all these questions: Is this the End? Disruption in ELT

What do you think? How far away are we from being replaced? Can we be completely replaced?
