Have you ever wondered what school will be like in the future?
The government has loads of plans for making classrooms more hi-tech and lessons more enjoyable.
But what do you think? Let us have your craziest ideas now!
Unfortunately this topic is now closed but there are Comments pages on other subjects on the main Chat index.
I go to Westlands School which has just been rebuilt, where we have swipe cards, and every teacher has laptops already.
Lloyd ,14, Torquay
I think we should have a swipe card for when we go into school, so we can start when we want. We could put the card into a computer and do each lesson and stop for a break whenever we want. This way we go to school when we want and leaving is up to how early you woke up!! Ingenious!

The idea that the whole learning process becomes interactive is not right because that would take the whole idea of learning out of school. You couldn't experience friendship, classroom politics or have all the fun behind your teacher's back.

The chairs you sit on will all be on rails and they will take you anywhere in the school automatically. On the right armrest is a panel that has lots of buttons with every room in the school labelled beneath them. On the left armrest is an
intercom to use at lunchtime, where lunch can be ordered from the kitchen.
Jonathan, 12, Oxford
No teachers, just do the work over the internet, that would be cool!
David, 9, London
I think that we should all have laptops built in our desks now with a mini teacher inside and you can turn it down when they're shouting
Katherine, 12, Co. Armagh
I think that changing schools would be great but keep the books!
Joe, 12, Preston
I think that we should have a computer or a laptop each and have a virtual teacher on them to teach you. Then at play time you could play games on the computers! And I wish they would pick my school to test out the computers because I would really enjoy it!
Laura, 12, Burton
I think we should have the hi-tec schools because teachers can't nag you.
Emily, 9, Stratford upon Avon
I think you should have a watch with a satellite connection so you wouldn't have to get shouted at by your teacher you could just press mute.
Tom, 9, Portsmouth
The idea of learning at you own pace is good, but has one big problem - there will be no teachers to supervise so loads of kids will mess around. The government can't find enough teachers to fill the places, so they are just using computers to teach instead!
James, 12, London
I think the new hi-tec schools are great but what's wrong with the good old fashioned blackboard and exercise books?
Laura, 10, Staffordshire
I think having a cyber school which has lots of computers will be really cool and better for kids to learn on. And no homework is a good idea.
Carl, 12, Stilton
Someone comes in at night and programs a screen and the next day the screen comes up with what the pupils have to do. Every 15 minutes we get to play in the play park in the school for 15 minutes.
Gemma, 11, Dunfermline
We would get no homework and would only go to school for one morning a week to be told our assignments and then work from home!
Charlotte, 11, Bishops Stratford
I think that the lessons should be all on computers instead of having pens and paper because it costs loads each year to buy them!
Sarah, 13, Leeds
I think the Cyber Classrooms are a brilliant idea, more kids would go to school if they upgraded the classrooms.
Benjamin, 12, Cheltenham
In the future you would not have to go to school because you would know everything already......we wish!
Hannah and Danielle, 10, Hartley Wintney
I think the classes will be bigger and we will get less attention from the teachers. We wont be educated as well.
Candis, 16, Visalia
I think that in the future for classroom, the desks will have built-in computers and we won't have to pay extra.
Laura, 12, Homewood, US
I agree that touch screens would be cool. People are right. Writing on a desk that is vandalized with writing all over it isn't very neat because the paper always rips when it sinks down over the letters carved into the desk.
Jaime, 12, Saskatoon
VIRTUAL REALITY! You could put on a programmed head set, and you could visit places for subjects such as Geography and History!
Angus, 12, Guernsey
I think that all classrooms should have self catering services and computers that talk to you.
Helena, 9, Acton
No school building and we can have food and drinks whenever we want and we can go wherever we want whenever we want.
Ruby, 9, Lewes
I think that classrooms of the future would have no homework and the teacher on telly so you could change the channels or talk to your friends.
Rebekah, 8, Newburgh
I think that a virtual teacher 'cos then they might not see you mucking about at the back of the classroom!
Heather, 10, London
I would have touch screen computers to do our work on because at my school, most people forget pens and other equipment and the teachers don't like to keep giving them out. They should make desks that you can't write on because when you try to write on a piece of paper on a desk that is totally written over, it is impossible!
Jackie, 12, Herts
I think you should be able to have a teacher that is a robot and it can turn into any thing.
Jessica, 9, Leeds
You would each have a computer with lots of learning software, and at the end of a period your computer would automatically switch programs. At playtime, you could bring a computer game and you'd play on it for a while. And there would be NO HOMEWORK!!
Tom, 11, Edinburgh
We will have robot teachers and they will be deaf so we can shout as much as we can and we get easy work because they will only know the basics.
Kirsty, 10, Galashiels
I think in the summer on boiling hot days lessons should be outside! But in winter I think you should have a big, nice, warm display in your classroom to make you feel at home and warm instead of shivering all of the time.
Hannah, 11, Chester-Le-Street
No More school buildings. The teacher can't tell us what to do and we learn one subject. There's no homework and teacher is a robot.
James, 11, Harrogate
The classroom would be in your home, and the lessons would be on a CDrom so you could do them on your own computer.
Natalie, 11, Biddenden
I'd have virtual homework and no pen and paper, but touch screens instead
