“What would happen if robots were a part of your everyday life—at school and beyond?”
Latitude, an international research consultancy, asked nearly 350 children in Australia, France, Germany, South Africa, the UK and the USA to draw a picture and write a story that answers the question above.
Through this task researchers aimed to take a closer look at the following issues: What intersections exist between learning, play and creativity, and how might
technology facilitate all three fluidly; What kind of relationships do children hope to develop with and through robots?; What are the specific opportunities for robots and other technologies to ignite and encourage children’s learning and creativity?
