How do I disregard such a procedure?

In response to Our pitch:

Can you explain a bit more how your solution will help to support teachers and educators, not just students? This will help to align your application with the Challenge's target demographic: teachers and educators.

Carlos Pereira

Hi Sara, thanks for your feedback. This is a very good question. Should I answer it here or should I edit the solution to add the answer?

Carlos Pereira

Hi again Sara,

I am adding my answer here and I will also edit my application so my answer is in there, too.

Here you go:

Clarification on how Livox helps teachers and educators:

Inclusion is a very important thing these days.

By "disabled" on the text below we mean people who have any kind of impairment that prevent them from having proper education. This impairment can be either visual, motor, auditory, cognitive or mixed. So these issues include people with Autism, Down Syndrom, Cerebral Palsy and many diseases and disabilities that prevent them from learning at the same pace as the classroom.

However it's a big challenge to have a person with a disability or learning impairments in a clasroom. It's even harder for a teacher when a student is non-verbal! How do you know if he/she is learning? Did he/she understand? How to evaluate his/her progress?

Many schools and teachers are not ready to deal with these challenges.

First for non-verbal people with disabilities: Livox helps teacher and educators by allowing these students to talk. In this way a teacher may evaluate if the student is learning and can even explain again if this student is having a hard time.

One of our new technologies (Livox Natural Conversation) enables dynamic conversations between a teacher and a non-verbal disabled student. It's possible to create a keyword in Livox and by SPEAKING this keyword, Livox starts listening. Just like "Ok Google" or "Hey Siri". We recommend it to be the name of the disabled student. So, imagine a situation where a teacher just read a book for a classroom and among the students there's a non-verbal child named "Tom". So, in the situation described here, the keyword to activate Livox is "TOM". By using Livox the teacher can say something like: "Tom is this book about a dog, a cat or a rabbit?". Livox uses Natural Language Processing to show these three options DOG, CAT and RABBIT on the tablet screen so "Tom", can select the option he may think it's correct.

There's no need for the teacher to memorize sentences or to create paper cards with possible answers. Usually that's how they do it today.

This approach is very interesting because the teacher feels compelled to actually TALK to the disabled student.

Besides that, the teacher can create ANY content on Livox. So imagine a situation where a severely motor disabled student needs to answer questions for a Science test. By using Livox a teacher can easily create these tests and this student (even though he can't grab a pencil and a paper) can answer the question with his eyes, for example.

Livox also provides evaluations to track the improvements of students. In this way, special education teachers can see in what areas a particular student needs to improve.

We are also finalizing an new section on our portal where professionals will be able to upload and download pre-made contents for their students. So, even if a teacher has no idea on how to set up a Math test in Livox, for example, they will be able to just download it from our portal and it will be ready for use.

So, Livox helps teachers and educators to face the challenge of having a student with a disability and/or impairment in clasroom by fostering communication between them and by providing tools to help teachers to evaluate and teach these students in an easier way.
