Looking for a Class Robot? Try Robo Wunderkind

Ask a Tech Teacher

There are a lot of options if you want to bring programmable robots to your classroom. It is a build-a-robot kit designed to introduce children ages six and up to coding and robotics as well as the fun of problem-solving and creative thinking. The robot starts in about thirty pieces (there are so many, I didn’t really count them). You don’t use all of them in one robot, just pick those that will make your robot do what you want.

There is a scene from the recent Star Trek movie reboot of a young alien named Spock at school. Spock and his classmates each stand in their own semi-circular pod, surrounded by screens while an automated “teacher” prompts them with questions. This eerie scene is what some fear will be the future of schooling. Students staring at screens, by themselves, while an artificial intelligence program delivers content and assessments.

How AI is Changing Writing: Check out Robot Don

Ask a Tech Teacher

One of these writing assistants is Robot Don, an AI-driven software which we are going to discuss in this article. What does Robot Don bring to the table? The most important feature that Robot Don blesses us with is that it’s a browser-based software which means you don’t have to download any installation files and use it on a limited number of devices. Robot Don’s AI-powered nature allows it to learn and adapt to new trends which means more accurate writing inspection.
