How Does Alexa Help Kids Learn?

Instructors can use Alexa to get ready for a lesson, and administrators can use it to get vital data like enrollment figures quickly

College students naturally use voice technology to communicate with instructors, the campus, and educational resources

Alexa facilitates user engagement, expands the reach of EdTechs and learning companies, and enhances student learning

Alexa is being used by Lancaster University in the UK to help students get around campus and in their academic careers

According to Amazon, households with children under the age of eight interact with Alexa twice as frequently as other users

Although children may be the target audience for Amazon’s marketing of Alexa, using the voice assistant is not always beneficial for them

A majority of 66% expressed interest in purchasing a voice-activated smart speaker that can foster abilities such as curiosity, focus, and enhanced communication
