From the USA Weekend story: "For the past decade, Okita, 38, has used that understanding in her research, creating computerized avatars and robots in a quest to produce “the ideal peer learner” for children... 'There’s something about being able to share the physical space” with a lifelike tutor that makes a difference to kids,' she says."
