As the summer months wind down and September approaches, students and faculty prepare to return to school and get back into the routine of another academic year. However, as students and teachers get back to school, they also get back to the threat of infection posed by dangerous germs and pathogens that are commonly spread in educational facilities, such as those that cause respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), rhinovirus, enterovirus D68, and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), among others.

Hundreds of educators have contacted us in the past weeks, asking for resources to teach remote, while schools open online only, or hybrid only.
RobotLAB got you covered!
In this video, you will learn how to use Google Expeditions while being remote. It is easy, it is free, and it is full of places to go to, even if we can't physically do it.
Watch the video below and learn how to do it in three simple steps
Only 20% of schools offered rigorous, technology-based remote instruction while school buildings were shut down this spring, according to a new report from the American Enterprise Institute, and students in K-12 districts with a majority of high-poverty or low-achieving students were less likely to receive rigorous instruction at a distance.
In August 2018, Jorg Duitsman started his teaching position in the departments of Mechatronics and International Engineering at Summa College. Jorg is a long-term lover of technology and maker education. Like any other technology teachers, Jorg was eager to find a better way to teach problem solving, critical thinking, and other important 21st century skills in classrooms. That’s when he started searching and found DOBOT. Later on, he purchased 20 Dobot magicians and two Dobot m1 for his school.
The Milan Malpensa International Airport in Italy is a major airport that welcomes over 20 million passengers each year. Their customers' safety is crucial, especially in these unprecedented times. To help protect travelers from contaminants such as COVID-19, they've decided to implement Connor UVC robot to systematically disinfect the Airport to help prevent the virus from spreading.
The Milan Malpensa Airport is the first Airport in Italy to deploy robots to clean and disinfect airport terminals. The Connor UVC Robots have already been tested and are actively at work targeting bacteria that are both in the air and on surfaces.
Coding is enormous in education right now.
No wonder. Coding offers so many academic benefits that schools cannot ignore its significance. Sequential processes, computational thinking, and creative problem-solving all make up coding. It’s the new literacy in schools. There’s so much to like about coding that coding academies and boot camps are springing up everywhere.
As calendar days tick by, summer are right around the corner. And with more sunshine and better conditions in sight, that means outdoor activities and camps are on the horizon.
Artificial Intelligence is no longer just contained in science fiction films. It is increasingly becoming a significant part of our everyday lives. We already use tools like Siri and Amazon’s Alexa and are just beginning to see the possibilities of AI in education. And, we should expect to see more. The Artificial Intelligence Market in the US Education Sector 2017-2021 report suggests that experts expect AI in education to grow by “47.50% during the period 2017-2021.”
With the expected growth of AI in education, here is a glimpse into some of the roles it will play in the classroom.
Tips and projects that teachers can share with parents and caregivers to guide children in any grade through project-based learning—with or without technology.
Distance learning has left a mark on schools worldwide. Even now that educators are getting ready for a gradual reopening, it is clear that they will not allow the efforts made to adapt to the crisis to go to waste: the next phase of the plan for the return to a new normal is blended learning, and it just might be here to stay.
But this combination of distance and in-person learning may leave some teachers unprepared, so let’s take a look at what to expect.
