Beam Remote Presence Device Installed at East Elementary

Beam Remote Presence Device

Photos of Beam Device at East


A Beam remote presence device has been installed at East Elementary for a student that is unable to be at school.  This is a joint pilot effort between The Ohio State University and Nationwide Children's Hospital to enable remote learning for students.. The student is able to control the robot remotely in the classroom via an iPad and stay connected with school work and classmates.  The student can see, hear and talk like they are in class.  The robot can also go classroom to classroom.  The iPad was delivered to the student's house yesterday and the student and family were really excited!  The student immediately began to control the robot around the classroom and said "this is cool."  If you see the Beam going down the hall at East Elementary you’ll know why.
