More robotic education

Robotic Education is an excellent idea. There are a number of very good things about it.

The interaction could be unsupervised by a human adult; "unsupervised playtime" is supposed to be an essential component to boosting creativity and critical thinking. I'm not sure whether a somewhat un-intelligent robot counts as supervision.

The robot could get an excellent idea of the state of development and potential for growth of the child. Specifically tailored education could result.

Constant availability to answer questions and instruct is a huge bonus. Rather than dumping kids in front of televisions, they will interact with an educator, and like it.

A stronger interest in engineering and robots will appear.

Last but not least: dance lessons.
