Can a robot REALLY teach my students?

Posted by TinyEYE | May 27, 2014 11:55:00 AM

 

This is a picture we’ve held in our minds for over a decade. Some of us picture the classic TV show “The Jetsons” where Elroy’s class is taught by a robot. Others picture the scene from “The Matrix”, where upon downloading the information into his mind, Keanu Reeves announces “I know Kung Fu!” But aside from these futuristic examples, our real-life experience with robots has been limited to our household appliances and remote-control cars.

So, why can these robots teach our children where none could before? Simple. They aren’t just robots.

4 Common Misconceptions of Online Therapy: Busted

Posted by TinyEYE | Apr 11, 2014 11:49:00 AM

With the increased adoption of technology within schools across North America, it leaves one to wonder how this is impacting our youth. It seems that everywhere we turn there’s no getting away from there is a new technology. Like it or not, the future is here…along with the list of critics opposed to this shift. For those who have already opened their doors to online therapy (also known as telepractice), the ability to serve students with speech and occupational therapy disorders has shone through as paramount. It is our hope that the Speech-Language Pathology and Occupational Therapy community become educated on the vast benefits this new form of delivery provides through the use of traditional telepractice, as well as the next generation of telepractice in introducing robot doubles to the classroom.

Q & A: Robots in Schools - Your Questions, Answered

Posted by TinyEYE | Apr 4, 2014 11:51:00 AM

A couple weeks ago, we asked what you want to know about the TinyEYE robot. You had some great questions, and we have done our very best to answer them!

 

I wonder if the robot would be used for 5th grade and higher?

Yes. Much like our "traditional" remote therapy service, the robot can be used for any age group. The robot is as flexible as the therapist running it. We work with you to develop a plan for your service, and maintain a constant relationship with each school to ensure that the program is meeting and exceeding expectations.
