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 value of the Photon SEN set consists of methodological materials, a learning mat, 194 learning cards, and a Photon robot with 11 different sensors.
The Photon SEN robot kit includes:
- Photon robot
- Access to digital materials in Estonian or English
- Play map
- Estonian language study flashcards
- User manual in Estonian
The study material included with the Photon SEN kit is a total of 50 hours. 30 of them are aimed at children with autism spectrum disorders, 20 at social and emotional competencies. 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 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.
What you need to get started:
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, he speaks his own emotional language – he expresses himself with different sounds. 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 can be used with different applications:
- Photon EDU
- Photon Robot
- Photon Coding
- Photon Rivals.
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.
