From the perspective of a K-5 tech teacher, this is an exciting time. Everyday new tools come to market. The newest robot I know of is Codie.
Codie looks like it will be easy for kids to program and one of the first functions they highlight is the ability to program it to dance.
Overall, I am pretty excited to see how Codie can support learning in technology and other classes. With the accelerometer and gyroscope I wonder if the data is exportable. If it is I could see using Codie in science and math class.
The coding interface looks like a flow chart, and I wonder how quickly my kids will take to it.
