Tangible Tech Collaborative: It was great fun to get a tour of the lab at Tufts University DevTech Research Group and see what’s in development there. Shown here is their hand-made KIBO puppet being created to help inform children about the many interesting functions of the real KIBO Robot (being produced by KinderLab Robotics).
The DevTech Research Group’s website explains that “Prof. Marina Umaschi Bers and her students in the DevTech Research Group examine the role of computational technologies that are developmentally appropriate for young children and that help them learn about new things in new ways.” We appreciate the helpful and inspiring tour offered by Marina Umaschi Bers. Thanks again!
