That’s right! Robots are attending school for children who are homebound or ill in the hospital according to a CNN article. Technology is making it easier for students to stay connected with their teachers, classmates, family and friends and hospital/medical staff. Part of this technology is donated to children to help them keep connected on behalf of a child named Graham, who was ill and passed away at the age of 8.
“He would lend other sick children his toys or act silly to make them laugh,” Morissette said. “Graham’s special spirit is what kept me going. He helped me have the energy and the strength to fight with him.”
