Togi Identify tested

I went to Seton today and tested the Identify version of Togi.
The kids seemed to react even better to this version which explicitly tells them what to do (TOUCH the pizza).
One great idea that came from this session was to look at evaluation tests/mechanisms that the occupational therapists use with the kids.
With these different levels, Togi could be used to evaluate the cognitive level of kids by changing the question you ask the kid – very similar to what I was intuitively doing when creating the different levels for Togi:
1. Identify – can the child identify objects on the screen
2. Decide – can the child decide if the object on the screen is the same as the word being spoken
3. Associate – can the child associate adjectives with actions (hungry->eat – tired->sleep)
From the evaluation methods and procedures I will sure be able to come up with several new levels that could aid in the process, or at least make it a little more fun.

TOGI with Levels

Togi now has 3 levels:

1. Identify – Togi encourages kids to identify objects by pointing/touching them – PLAY
2. Decide – Togi asks kids if object show is what he is saying “Is this a pizza? Yes or No” – in development
3. Associate – Togi is tired therefore needs to sleep… hungry therefore eat. – PLAY

The idea is to add levels adding and subtracting complexity to the game.
