A Turtle is a part of the educational software LOGO. It has both a virtual and a physical form. The software dictates the action and the physical robot simply does as it is told.
Roamer is not a Turtle, because it contains its own "intelligence". It is self sufficient and does not need a computer.
What value does a real Turtle have over a virtual one?
Valiant is planning to develop a number of interfaces to existing accessible technology. Contact us and tell us what you would like to interface to and we will try and make it a priority . priority.
Though the original design impetus came from work in SEN, Roamer-Too has developed into a more general educational tool. Its current focus is biased towards mainstream teaching situations. However, Valiant remains committed to SEN issues. If we are to create first class tools for use in the area, it is essential we combine our skills with those of SEN specialists. We would like to encourage anyone in this field, interested in this project to become RoAD Partners.
