I really like the idea of using new technologies and robots as tools to engage children with learning. In the grand scheme of reading and literacy currently though, I would consider it a bit of a novelty and a “nice to have” type of thing rather than “must have” – I don’t think anything can beat the one-on-one story reading experience with children – but it will definitely become far more mainstream in the future as the technology is developed. A huge part of that would be cost – of course!!
The cyborg comment made me laugh – my 4 year old knows what a cyborg is because my graphic novel nut of a husband taught her!
