Overviews of some of our current apps:
Face2Face guides the user to pay attention to faces, and makes a rewarding game out of eye contact. Users earn points and exciting cartoon rewards when they look toward a partner (e.g. teacher or parent) while wearing the lightweight computerized glasses.
In Emotion Charades, users tilt their head to choose the emoji that matches their partner’s expression, strengthening their emotional literacy. The two-player game creates a dialogue via prompts for the teacher/parent to read. Prompts assure deeper levels of emotional processing, and foster a connection with the student.
Transitions to new locations and routines cause many students stress and anxiety. This app provides an immersive 360-degree experience, with gamified rewards for exploration, which help familiarize users with new places before visiting them in real life.
Human-Centric Use of Technology
The technology is the enabler, and the gamification provides structure and motivation, but the real focus is the human-human interactions we foster and the confidence that succeeding in them brings.
“This student definitely has some attention difficulties normally, but when he put those glasses on, he immediately started focusing. The hands went quiet, his feet weren’t moving, and the focus was dead on.”Sara
“Typically with technology – iPad and iPhone – the child is looking down for the reward. With Empowered Brain, the child is looking up. And looking at you!”
“It has worked out very well [in our school]. … They love it. … It also has not been a distraction. Even though I am spending some quality time with the student, before and after playing the game, I am able to address the other students as well.”
