We look forward to getting to know the teachers and students at the PS 94Q David D. Porter School in Queens, New York for the next leg of our pilot program in May (Exact Date is still TBD). Our pilots are a great way to both introduce teachers to the ways Abii can support them in the classroom, and to gather feedback from students and parents on how Abii performs. This type of feedback from the educational community will be critical in the development of our smart robot tutors, and we would love to include you! To bring Abii to your school please fill out the form here.
Here is an excerpt about them from an education ranking website:
“Just a few blocks from the Long Island border, PS 94 hums with activity and purpose. The science room has more animals than we’ve seen just about anywhere, and the organized principal and staff know how to target lessons to students at all levels.
Rather than one-size-fits-all instruction, teachers try different approaches with different children. Children have a choice of activities and tasks for reading and math, depending on their interests and level of skills: one child may work on a puzzle, another may write words with magnetic letters, while a third may read to himself.
“Teachers understand we can’t teach the same way to everyone,” said Laura Avakians, principal since 2014.Located in a middle class neighborhood of one-family homes where most children walk to school, PS 94 could easily hold its own with neighboring Great Neck, widely considered one of the best schools districts in the state.
“You can taste the learning from the minute you walk in the door,” is a quote posted in the entrance from the Department of Education’s 2016 Quality Review.”
