I have been thinking about @DJ focus on schools and robots in education. The obvious benefit is kids learn about robotics but this is a change in curriculum for schools so is a hard sell. I was wondering if there is benefit in focusing on how robots can help with existing curriculum. The idea of JD as a teachers assistant I think would resonate well with schools.
Flash cards are used extensively in school to teach 5+7 3*8 and learning words with pictures (Dog, Watch etc). Reading flash cards through visual recognition (or checking answers, keeping score) would be a good use case. Although QR codes maybe a better way for computer to get 100% accuracy.
Face recognition for the kids with an individual dance (hand shake etc) they each make up would also be cool. I am sure you have seen the videos of teachers who have separate hand shake for each kid. (They can also take attendance).
Language Translation maybe another good use case. Speak in English it translates to French, German etc. Show a picture of an object and it says in different language.
What other use cases could we come up with for robots in schools?
