Unlikely classmate will join students in their lessons

Students in Kingsbury will be joined by an unlikely classmate this week as part of a drive to promote new technologies and develop teaching and learning.

The pupils, from Kingsbury High School, in Princes Avenue, will become the first in London to host NAO, a robot who will demonstrate how he can engage with and inspire students.

The school’s Head of Technology, Chris Carver, is currently working in partnership with John Pinkney from the Warwick ICT Development Service.

The robot entranced students and staff with his dance routines and charm.
