Play-I Robots that Teach Coding

Play-I Robots that Teach Coding

My kindergarten teacher has a sore throat. Daddy had to check with her to see if the parent-teacher pow-wow was still on for tomorrow. It is.

But what if my teacher never ever got a sore throat. And was always on time. And could get me interested in technology on all levels. Maybe even teach me to code … or dance … or play songs … or interact with other kids … or become comfortable with technological gadgets … or all of them!

There’s a company Play-I that has an idea and now more then $360,000 to further develop it. The goal is to get kids from the get-go interested and relaxed with technology here in Silicon Valley. And to not just play but get the logic behind how things work.

Watch a Video report about Play-I here.

The robots can be controlled via a touch-screen device.

There’s a new R – reading, wRiting and aRithmetic – pRogRamming.

Kids ‘tell a story’ that is equal to programming but they don’t realize it.

Programming is to be a fundamental skill of the current school-aged generation = think little people like me.


Where can I buy one of these?

In my tiny little school, we are still learning the King James language.

I wonder if looking backwards sometimes can be as important as looking ahead?
