This is so strange! I’m not sure what purpose the robot serves? Can schools program it for each new lesson? It seems like a total lack of authority in the classroom. I couldn’t imagine working alongside a robot. The finished product looks like its more for show than for function. I wonder how school children have taken to having a robot for a teacher!
