OVO asks questions about mathematics and children respond by saying the answer aloud. The use of a robot does not require any special knowledge. The child can use it independently after a little instruction.

Robot is based on automatic speech recognition (ASR) and natural language understanding (NLP / NLU).

  • Helps children learn and remember by repeating things which needs to learn.
  • Basics of mathematics
  • Foreign language words and dialogue exercises
  • Repetition is needed to keep learned things permanently in mind.
  • The robot helps you to learn the lessons through the conversation.
  • In this way, even quieter or more shy students will be able to speak out and react.
  • The teacher can follow the progress of the children through a web browser.
  • The robot adapts to the child’s own skill level and thus automatically provides individual teaching at the point where the child needs repetition.
  • The robot also gives immediate feedback after each task. 
  • OVObot mukautuu oppijan omaan taitotasoon ja kysyy kysymyksiä juuri niistä asioista mitkä olisi hyvä seuraavaksi oppia.
  • robotti antaa myös palautteen jokaisen vastauksen jälkeen. Näin oppija pystyy hahmottamaan omaa editymistään.  
  • robotit eivät ole erehtymättömiä, joten harjoittelu ja annettu palaute auttaa myös kyseenalaistamaan ja oppimaan kriittistä ajattelua. Lapsetkin usein huomaavat jos sanoivat oikean vastauksen mutta robotti kuulee tai tunnistaa vastauksen väärin. Tämä osaltaan auttaa oppimaan, sillä oppija joutuu välillä miettimään antamaansa vastausta ja siihen saamaansa palautetta. 
  • Robotin avulla oppija kuulee selkeää ja täydellistä ääntämystä jopa halutulla murretyypillä. Näin voidaan harjoitella vaikka brittienglannin ja intianenglannin eroja. Savo ja Rauma ei valitettavasti ole vielä valikoimissa mutta saa nähdä mitä tulevaisuus tuo 😉

The use of a robot does not require any special knowledge but the child can use it independently after a little guidance.

Teachers are also not required to have specific ICT skills. If the teacher wants to modify the questions, then basic excel skills are enough.

Robot questions can be easily modified and their difficulty levels changed. You can change the questions by logging in to the teacher’s own website.

Children’s progress can be monitored by logging in to the teacher’s own website.

The training is started by pressing the big GO button on the robot screen. OVObot asks for a name so you know and remember who to ask questions to.

The robot compares the said name to the name on the teacher’s control panel and if said name is found in the student list then you can test your skills.

The student list on the teacher’s control panel shows which students OVObot identifies when introducing themselves. The teacher can add or remove names as needed.

  • The teaching content includes basic concepts, times, mathematics, and vocabulary and discussion exercises.
  • In own language, the exercises are suitable for 5-10 year olds and in a foreign language also for older as part of language learning.
