Coding and robots tend to be two of my popular blog topics at present. Why? I personally feel that we will see a rapid increase in both in education, in the very close future. As long as we are aware of the possibilities, when they become available to us through our school budgets we might not find the concepts as overwhelming as we sometimes find new technology. Meet Yana ($59 AUS) and Bo ($169 AUS) below.
I like the fact that they are both programmable with SCRATCH and Blockly software which is used in many classrooms already. I also predict that we we be seeing many more, affordable robots on the market soon.
