Use of AV1 in Lessons

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Re: Use of AV1 in lessons.

You’re receiving this letter as one of your child’s classmates will now be attending school from
home, with the use of an AV1 robot. We’d like to take a moment to explain to you what the AV1 is,
how it will fit into the classroom.

AV1 is a personal avatar that allows children suffering from long-term illness, to partake in the
education and vital social aspects of school from home or the hospital bed.

The AV1 sits in the classroom and allows the home-based child to partake in lessons. From asking
and answering questions, to working on group projects with classmates. Using a oneway video
stream and two-way audio stream, the AV1 allows the child to be able to see, hear and
communicate with teachers. The child and the teacher will interact with the AV1 in the same way as
they would with any child; by talking to it.

We would like to offer reassurance that the AV1 meets the most stringent child safety standards,
achieved through using multi-level security protocols. The AV1 is password-protected, uses
encrypted video streams, is accessible in real-time only, and locked to a single device. In addition to
this whilst the child accesses the device, they are unable to take screenshots.

More information about the device can be found here at

If you would like more information please do not hesitate to contact the school.

We thank you in advance for your support and understanding in this matter.

Yours sincerely,
Mr C. McArdle
Assistant Principal
