Region 10 Education Service Center has a remotely operated robot which can be sent to schools in place of students who are hospitalized or who cannot attend school on a fairly long-term basis due to health issues, etc. The robot has a video camera, microphone, and a screen. The student can control the robot’s movements from their computer at home, and can listen to the teacher and interact with their teacher and classmates.
