Could the student read to the robot and have it correct them?
Could be useful for vowel sounds and pronounciation.
What will the cost of having a robot in our class be?
Could a robot read to a student?
Making a Plan
finding cost of a robot
Robot upkeep - having the skills to programme it
what schools use robots that we could visit?
research current literature on use of robots to help literary and numeracy
Investigate funding available
Funding the cost of ongoing PD for someone/teacher to run it?
Is the technology available?
Organising to be completed within a certain timefame
Karin - is the technology available and what is the cost? Visiting another school that use the technology.

what robots are there out there that can do task - looks to incorporate them in teaching program
Robotics will enhance the current learning but not replace actual instructional face/face interactions.
Sharing using robots in the classroom with parents/community/sponsors
Sharing product/process with others
Reflection, what went well, what would we do differently, what were the problems, what questions arose from the process? Where do we go now?
Technology isn't available currently in NZ however, there are robotic products that will enhance literacy and numeracy eg Sphero, Beebots,
Peer and self review - Bob was crap he didn't do anything?!
Stop and work out where we are at
Is this actually feasible now, doesn't look like the technology is there yet?
recap what we have learnt
do we have any further questions
