What are the benefits of having NAO in class?
NAO has qualities that are extremely well-adapted to the context of special education: he is engaging, predictable, tireless, but also multi-interactive.
NAO is humanoid technological interface who naturally attracts children. He helps to create communication bridges between the child and the people around him.
He is easy to interpret, helps to reduce the children's anxiety, and minimises the risks of over-stimulation.
NAO offers constant encouragement and never tires of repeating instructions. This helps to win the child's trust who will be happy to pursue his efforts.
Whether through touch, voice or vision, NAO also offers an extremely wide range of possible interactions.
What is the goal of the ASK NAO interface?
This dedicated interface makes for easier use of the ASK NAO solution, by making it both accessible to everyone and upgradable.
Even with no prior knowledge in software or robotics, the interface enables users to take control of the robot easily and at any time.
Teachers, parents and Special Needs teachers can exchange and easily update information relating to each child.
This interface enables users to personalise sessions based on the profiles of each child and provides access to analysis tools, such as tools for recording data, automatic performance analysis and the creation of graphs to measure the progress made by each child.
What are the available applications?
The educational applications offered with the interface are directly inspired by approved behavioural models and approaches (ABA, PECS, TEACCH, DENVER, SCERTS).
They can be personalized, and you can select and customize activities based on the learning goals, motivations and individual personality of each child.
These applications cover a broad range of varied and complementary skills: interpersonal communication, knowledge of everyday activities, vocabulary lessons, the recognition of emotions, etc.
