Technology is now part of kid’s lives. But there are still millions of young kids around the world being taught the way their grandparents were taught. The educational system is outdated and every kid gets educated in the same way.
Every kid should be able to learn and get educated based on their learning ability and interest. That’s why we created Roybi Robot.
Roybi is an AI-powered companion robot for kids 3-7 years old in early childhood education and language development. Getting children to engage with educational robots early provides educational, social, and emotional fulfillment that lasts until adulthood.
It has been proposed that robots will become indispensable to educators in the next decade, helping them revolutionize the teaching profession. That being said, how are teachers now taking the advantage of robots in their classrooms in preparation for the trend toward educational robotics? One technique educators of today are implementing in pre-school classes and beyond is the use of robots for tracking the educational growth of young learners. Despite a few drawbacks, like misuse of student data and demand for cybersecurity, tracking learning progress with state-of-the-art robotics is invaluable to teachers. The three, glaring benefits of using educational robots to track student progress include fortifying pedagogy, enhancing curriculum design, and improving student evaluation.
