Smart Kids Programs
BView is a platform consisting on hardware devices (like a Portable Tactile Vision System scientifically proven) and Software modules that reduces limitations that people may have in their lives due to their physical or mental conditions. The aim of the platform BView is to help people visually impaired to integrate into society.
The complex mixture of scientific knowledge, technology, sociological and pedagogical features allow carrying out a challenge to humans: integrate children with visual disabilities to be integrated into school programs. The goal is to teach children with severe visual impairment or blindness to interpret and understand the environment autonomously to get them to integrate naturally with their classmates.The concept is based on transmitting through a built-in goggles blind person camera, the received image to an array of dynamic points that trace format highlight the image to encourage the person to recognize their environment through passive touch.
The core learning process of BView is divided in three different phases: the first one is based in "Stimulation" Students receive passive tactile stimulation through the tactile stimulator in order to identify his environment, the second is base in the student's "Feelings" Students feel the stimuli through the touch and process and learn in his brain the process acquired from the stimulation phase, then the last is integrating the information and is called "Perceiving" Students organize the sensation and provide them with a meaning and are ready to recognize shapes and features.
To be part of the program, you only need to have this two admission's criterias:
