Plobots are an example of what is coming in terms of active learning in coding and programmable technology at home and at school. They run on smart cards. One advantage is they decrease screen time so that technology in schools is not just about computers and tablets and students learn about how to make technology function. Robots are the future. They are here now in some places in the world and they are going to become more visible. If we want them as a good part of our life we need to get the next generation to engage with coding and develop ideas. Plobots are one way of starting this. The official Plobot Facebook page has a lot of helpful educational ideas which are not wholly centred on Plobots. The page looks at the wider issues and ideas with technology in education too. You can also follow Plobot on Twitter.
