I would like to purchase some ABiis for my school. How many students can typically use each robot?

During a typical school day and after school program, we recommend 1 robot for every 10-15 students, to allow for at least 2-3 sessions per student, per week.

How long is each lesson?

Each lesson is approximately 10-15 minutes long, depending on difficulty level.

What subjects and grade levels does ABii currently offer?

ABii currently comes with 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade math.  Reading curriculum for K-2 will be released Fall 2020!

Will ABii offer other subjects and grades?

Yes!  Certified K-5 teachers are currently working on national standards-aligned K-2 reading lessons.

How can I get new lessons when they are released?

Once you set up the wifi on your ABii robot, ABii will automatically update her own software each time she powers up, or when you click the “SYNC” button.  This includes any updates to new lessons, robot behaviors and user information.

Why does ABii stop moving in the middle of my lesson?

ABii goes to sleep after 3 minutes of inactivity.  If the student does not interact with the screen continuously for 3 minutes, a window will pop up asking if you need more time.   If no answer is received, the app will automatically log out the student and ask you to close the browser tab.

ABii just logged me out

If you do not interact with ABii for 3 minutes, she will display a message asking if you still want to continue. If no response to that message is received, ABii will log the student out due to prolonged inactivity. To avoid, please respond to ABii’s message with a “yes”.

 

How do I shut down ABii?

You can either navigate to the dashboard and click the “Shut Down” button, or just turn the switch on ABii’s power cord to OFF.
