Evoke Education (Moe the Monkey) has worked in the education sector for 20 years and has been proactive in supplying new technologies to schools. We feel that this year will see the emergence of interactive technology such as VR, AR, 3D and holographics.
We have developed an interactive avatar system that has the ability to see and hear children. It can respond to its audience in pitch altered voice. Children that have seen the monkey are fully engaged and respond in a more open and friendly manner than they would with their teacher, even though their teacher was driving the monkey. It was suggested to us by an executive head teacher that due to the “cuteness” of the monkey it could conduct a non-threatening interview if used by a professional child counsellor.
