This Valentines, we're sharing 5 things partners LOVE about Virtual Avatars, celebrating the excellent ways they engage learners!
1: Access to All Characters
We know your students love Milo, but have they gotten to meet Veda, Carver, or Jemi yet?
Using Virtual Avatars provides teachers the opportunity to personalize learning and encourage student choice. Before beginning a lesson, ask your student which character they’d like to run lessons with today!
Although Robots can be utilized in a variety of settings, Virtual Avatars help create endless opportunities to unlock student success.
Lessons can be ran at students desks, in small groups, in sensory rooms, during circle time- whatever works best for your learner! All you need is two devices, and you're ready to go.
Did you know RoboKind's Virtual Avatars were first created in 2020 to create access for remote learning? Students can access RoboKind's curriculum through the Web Companion from home, and Teachers can pair their devices to deliver lessons remotely. This is a great option for delivering evidence-based curriculum to remote learners, or students that have to be away from the classroom for an extended period of time.
4: Gameify Your Students Learning Experience
We know that we can light up the brain when students have the opportunity to learn-through-play! Virtual Avatars create an engaging learning experience that makes learning critical social, behavioral, literacy and communication skills fun.
RK Controller works with Virtual Avatars too! Use the RK Controller to program your robot's speech, movements, and chest screen, as a tool to personalize student learning and enhance generalization opportunities.
