OHMNI FOR SCHOOL
Ohmni is being used today by schools for their homebound and hospital students who can’t attend school physically. Long periods of school absence can be a big problem for schools, parents and students who may miss school due to a medical condition, illness, or accident. Robotic telepresence gets the student back in the classroom so that it’s like they are there. Unlike something like skype on a laptop, it is operated in real-time by the student (not the teacher or an aid) so they feel independent and less sick. And unlike, on-line learning, the student is learning socially too - engaging with friends, teachers and everything that makes up the school environment.
In addition, Ohmni can used by teachers, visiting lecturers, and special ed staff who may not be able to come to the school physically, but who can deliver an animated lesson from a far.
Parents tell us that the biggest benefit is that their child receives the same instruction as their peers - they are not disadvantaged. For the student, it’s fun to drive themselves to the scheduled classrooms, socializing with their friends in the hallways as they go. Students could use Ohmni daily for long term absences caused by disease or a chronic illness. A student also could use Ohmni while they are out temporarily while recovering from a sickness or accident. In addition, Ohmni can used by teachers, visiting lecturers, and special ed staff who may not be able to come to the school physically, but who can deliver an animated lesson from a far.
