Introducing your new favourite edu app – Photon Magic Bridge
Photon Robot is a product dedicated to teachers and students. That’s why its key characteristics, such as the ease of use, universality, and most importantly: effectiveness, are so important. The device was designed to be effective at teaching, and on keeping children focused.
On all phases of development, we consult our products with educationalists, parents and most importantly – children. Thanks to that, we gain more adequate feedback, and our products respond to the most vital needs, that modern schools have.
All these iterations and meetings have led us to a simple conclusion – we need something, that will make lessons easier for teachers, more interesting for children, and make use of the resources available to the school. With that in mind, we decided to increase the positive impact of studying with Photon Robot, while making it all more affordable. Nobody wants to pay for additional app integration, software or educational equipment. This is how the Photon Magic Bridge app and the Magic Dongle came to life.
Photon Magic Bridge gives you new possibilities
Scratch is a free app, that allows people to code by connecting blocks. It’s often used at schools all over the world. It’s simple, has lots of potential for coding exercises, and is really universal. It also has a strong and unique community. Scratch connects users from all over the world, so that they could exchange experiences and knowledge. It’s the correct approach, that we value a lot at here at Photon.
All interactive class tools in one
Additionally, Photon Magic Bridge cooperates with a tiny device called Magic Dongle. It allows connection between a computer and 8 robots in your class – at the same time! The comfort of usage by students and teachers is increased dramatically. Let’s just add, that Magic Bridge can, by the help of Magic Dongle, be connected wirelessly to an interactive whiteboard. This allows showing the app view on a big screen during classes as well as using it as a large tablet.
What does it all mean for the teacher? First of all: flexibility in his or her work, thanks to the simple access to many different apps. Children will learn more, and do so through more diverse means. That’s valuable even for 14-16 year old audiences.
All apps available through the Magic Bridge are free and don’t require additional investments. What’s important: the only investment you have to make, is getting your own Magic Dongle, that will allow Magic Bridge to connect your computer to multiple robots. The dongle is priced at EUR 19,99 and is available both on our store, as well as at your local distributor.
How to start using free Magic Bridge application at school? It’s easy. All you need is a Photon Magic Dongle plugged into a PC, the app from our website and at least one robot. An interactive board would also come in handy, as well as our educational mat. These will increase the range of topics you can cover by miles. We also encourage you to make use of our lesson plan templates, and creating your own, which you’ll soon be able to share… How? Stay tuned for more info!
