Education scale-up Prowise will participate in the world's largest tech fair, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, starting on 5 January 2022. The 70 most innovative start-ups and scale-ups from the Netherlands will present themselves during four days to more than 170,000 companies and investors from around 160 countries.
Prowise follows, together with other Dutch participants, a training programme of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Change, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency. The Prowise Touchscreen Ten, presented at CES 2022, is the only interactive flat panel display in the world to combine the strictest privacy and cyber security certifications with an integrated solution for home schooling and learning through motion.
Learning through motion
It is widely recognized in the world of education that some children process information better when they actively participate with their whole body. Learning through motion aligns with the way children experience the world around them. On top of that, it is healthy and improves the learning outcomes. TheProwise MOVE camera allows you to play educational games without physically touching the screen. The camera with Intel® RealSense™, in combination with in-screen technology, captures the movements made and links them to on-screen movements. The games developed by Prowise itself (from geography to maths) trigger pupils to move a lot while they are engaged in cognitive learning activities.
'MOVE is a unique solution on the market. The first to integrate Intel RealSense technology to create a completely new top-quality learning experience based on gestures and aimed at improving the learning outcomes for pupils, regardless of their learning style', can be viewed in this case study by Intel.
The COVID-19 pandemic has definitely put distance learning on the map. The Prowise Touchscreen Ten provides a complete and secure solution so that teaching can continue at all times. The webcam functionality of the MOVE camera and installable apps such as Teams, Meet, Skype and Zoom, together with the 2.1 Dolby Audio soundbar and 6 wide area microphones integrated in the touchscreen, ensure that students can always receive education without any additional investment from the school. As a result, continuity of education is always guaranteed.
To guarantee privacy and the security of personal information, student data and test results, for example, cyber security is of the utmost importance during the learning process. Especially now with the COVID-19 pandemic, communicating and sharing information remotely has become commonplace. To offer schools a safe and privacy-friendly learning environment, Prowise develops all hardware and software in-house. This vision is recognized worldwide by independent certificates: ISO 27001 and AV-Test Institute ‘Tested IoT product’.
