Don’t be scared! The advance of robotics is not turning out to be the Terminator-like experience of the movies: Schools still exist and they are not teaching our kids how to protect themselves from the Arnold Schwarzenegger type androids prophesied in The Rise of the Machines. The dystopian nightmare scenario is not how things are playing out at all. In fact, the future is looking pretty good for humankind’s collaboration with Artificial Intelligence. In saying that, it would be foolish to entirely ignore the cautionary tales contained in Isaac Asimov’s: I, Robot. Why we see so many Popplets about Online Safety, maybe.
We know all about our bright digital future because of the increasing number of popplets that we see featuring Automation, Robots, Artificial Intelligence, and society’s ever-widening use of new technologies. This is the future – no doubt!
So, are you ready for the future as glimpsed on Popplet? – Engage!

One area where Popplet has continued to gain traction over the years is with the parents and educators of learners on the Autism Spectrum. Of course, individuals on the autism spectrum, like all individuals, vary in terms of learning requirements and no single app could possibly meet the whole range of their needs. As a multipurpose app, with a user-friendly interface, Popplet does tick a few boxes according to educators and other professionals who devote their time to working with their students to help them reach their learning goals.
