Gritwel Research & Technology center in The Netherlands is developing a state-of-the-art artificial intelligence based technology for earlychildhood education.

 

The technology is aimed to teach and illustrate rhymes, alphabets, simple arithmetic etc., to children using familiar tones or voices and colourful animations. It is aimed to be used as teaching aids with conventional technologies (I.e. Tablets, Smart boards, Computer, Smart phones etc). Psychological responses of children to familiar sounds and colourful stimulations form the basis of this new development.

 

The technology is based on the fact that foetus can start to hear and react to sounds from weeks 18-20 of pre-natal period; responding to sound signals. Our idea is to increase the concentration span of children by attracting them with sounds familiar to them, and colourful graphical animations, hence improving their cognition development and intellectual ability in the early years of life. Such advanced teaching method would also be a useful tool for improving learning abilities in growing children, and serve as smart teaching aid for educating children with special needs.
