This week LEGO unveiled a new robotics kit designed to teach elementary school students the basics of coding and engineering. And it's super cute.

WeDo2.0 was launched at CES 2016; we're into the initial reports. Sounds like the 280-piece set comes with corresponding cirriculum and troubleshooting exercises. Mini Milo (pictured above) is the sweet one-eyed bot students will be programming with. You can catch more details on the launch in the stories below. 

We also collected some good reads on Khan Academy's new brick-and-mortar school, as well as an EdWeek blog about personalized learning, everyone's favorite buzzword.

Enjoy the weekend and the reads, edtech friends.
