5 Educational Paths Influenced By Virtual Reality  | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

Closing one’s eyes and seeing something that doesn’t exist in one’s current reality is a skill that many people throughout time have had to develop in their learning paths. Now, virtual reality is taking imagination a step further and allowing people to experience augmented situations in a very practical way.

Kids, AI devices, and intelligent toys – MIT MEDIA LAB – Medium

Kids, AI devices, and intelligent toys – MIT MEDIA LAB – Medium | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING | Scoop.it

The dichotomy between machines and living things is narrowing. Today, artificial intelligence (AI) is embedded in all kinds of technology, from robots to social networks. This affects the youngest among us as we see the emergence of an “Internet of Toys.” The trend is what prompted us to explore the impact of those “smart,” interconnected playthings on children.


Beyond ethical and security issues, the emergence of these devices raises serious questions about how children’s interactions with smart toys may influence their perceptions of intelligence, cognitive development, and social behavior. So, our long-term research objectives are motivated by the following questions: How could exposure to, or interaction with, these smart bots affect children? What are the short- and long-term cognitive and civic implications? What design considerations could we propose to address the ethical concerns surrounding these issues?
