What we could hear from most of the interviews with various primary school teachers was that even now, in the age of digitalization, the use of digital media in the classroom is still not sufficiently covered, although thanks to numerous existing learning software, work is already being done quite regularly on computers or on the Internet. The world of digital media offers many facets and dangers, especially for newcomers. Avoiding technology cannot be a solution, so we wanted to support teachers to prepare primary school children for their first contact and possible dangers at an early age.
With our robot Benjamin we not only create an emotional bond with the students, but also a safe and interactive environment for the first steps into the World Wide Web. Thus, teachers and students are relieved and can dive into an exciting universe of digital media with Benjamin.
