Building a smarter computing culture in Fargo, ND
South Korea just recently chose to invest in robots in the classroom based on a “14-week trial program that supplemented preschool and kindergarten classrooms with robot teachers,” reports extremetech.com.
Dashevsky, the writer of this article, begins to wonder if laptops would be a wiser investment since it enables each student the connectivity and activities that the robot would supply. The one major loss would be the spatial orientation and movement capabilities of the robot over the laptop. Overall, I suppose, it is telling of the plethora of tech to choose from out there, and makes me think how there needs to be more thought into the rationale for the implementation of such tech.
Progress for the sake of progress. Tech for the sake of tech. oui, it’s getting messy out there!
