Going to School by Way of a Robot

I read a very cool article in the New York Times last weekend about the VGo Robot and how it had enabled homebound students to "be" in a classroom with their peers.

I'd read about telepresence robot being used in hospitals and factories, but this was the first I'd heard of them being used in education. It is such a creative solution.

If you are interested in more in depth student experiences about attending school virtually, there are several on the VGo website.
