Caption: Reportage on the Avatar Kids project, which allows children and teenagers who have to be hospitalised to be present in the classroom through Nao, a robot manufactured by the French company, Aldebaran Robotics. Nao replaces the sick child in the classroom during their time in hospital. The robot is controlled by the child who keeps his or her place in the classroom and can take part in the lessons. Jonas, 7, is suffering from leukemia and is the first child to test the Avatar Kids project with his class. He has to have chemotherapy which prevents him from attending school. He can now follow the lessons through Nao's eyes that he controls remotely using a tablet computer.
