Photon is the world’s first robot to develop with its owner. Thanks to this robot, children gain new knowledge and experience from the world of technology. With a photon robot, it is possible for a child to develop basic skills in a modern way. With the help of a robot, it is possible for children to develop their creativity, develop logical thinking, etc.
The robot is intended for children aged 5+.
The set includes:
2 x Photon robot (robots come with a USB cable for charging)
Set of masks
Access to study materials
The study material included in the Photon SEN kit is a total of 50 hours. 30 of them target children with autism spectrum disorders, 20 social and emotional competences. In our blog you can see 5 trial hours, which are available here.
Photon methodology approach:
In the case of the Photon SEN kit, the SEN teacher initially uses a Photon robot. Yes, in this case the SEN teacher guides the robot to the map. It may seem easy, but the first step is to find contact with a child with autism. In the second stage, the child is given the opportunity to lead himself. The photon creates an emotional connection with the child. Then the Photon is used to get an answer from the child.
To get started, you need:
To start working with the Photon robot, you need a smart device (must support Bluetooth and Android / iOS / Amazon Fire / Chrome OS) and the corresponding Photon applications (Photon EDU, Photon Live).
Footon Robot does not speak Estonian and any other human-readable language, it speaks its own emotional language – it expresses itself through various pronunciations. In addition to Photon, you can record 5 phrases with a length of 3 sec. The user interfaces of the applications are not yet in Estonian, but Estonian children understood intuitively.
The Photon comes with different applications:
Each application gives you a new way to use it. Photon Robot and Photon EDU are used for the HEV program.
Photon EDU – an application that includes Photon coding functionality and Photon education lessons. The Joystick functionality included in both Photon EDU and Photon Coding applications can be used to easily control the robot.
Photon Coding – the application allows programming.
Photon Rivals – an application that can use several robots at once.
The photon is a universal learning tool and can be used, for example, with an interactive floor. Where there are 50 games and they have already been translated into Estonian.
Charging the photon robot battery:
Only the USB battery charger cable is included with the photon. A USB port on a computer or a smart device with a USB type A port on the charger is suitable for charging.
