I am passionate about the possibilities that voice devices bring to the educational landscape. As of now, I believe that the Kids Edition Echo Dot creates offers:

Economical solutions to digital equity issues.

The ability for teachers to personalize for both individual students or their classroom as a whole based on "Just In Time" needs

Creates an interface with information that does not add to screen-time usage and allows for communal communication with less chance for off-task behavior

If you are interested in learning more about using Voice in Education, contact me for a consultation. I would love to help you roll-out a plan, and introduce your teachers to the concept.
