Education technology is a crucial element of the modern classroom, with interactive technologies such as blogs, wikis, mobile devices, whiteboards and more gaining prominence. It’s not surprising that robots might not be far behind. A new project at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology is using $100 million in grants and over 300 researchers to build and deploy an army of robots to deliver English instruction to South Korean school children. This has led to some interesting stories from the students and prospecting career opportunities. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, computing related occupations will account for almost 60 percent of all new science, engineering, technology and mathematics jobs by 2018. Computer careers are the wave of the future, and robots are surfing that wave towards a school near you.
