THE FLASH CARD OF THE FUTURE: Electronic, Interactive Learning System Helps Kids Learn with Customized Audio and Visuals

Students learns better when lessons are repeated. As the great Roman orator, Cicero, once said thousands of years ago, “Repetition is the mother of all learning.”

Building on this wisdom of the Ages, Hamilton Electronics has introduced the Study Buddy, an electronic, interactive and customizable learning system. Perfect for use at home and at school, Study Buddy lets kids from pre-K through high school create their own curriculum flash cards that use visual and auditory cues to reinforce learning.

“Study Buddy is a terrific tool,” says Sheldon Goldstein, former teacher and President of VCOM International Multimedia Corporation, the parent company of Hamilton Electronics. “By changing visuals and auditory cues, entire lessons can be stored or changed in just moments, making even complicated instruction easy to digest. This is truly the future of learning.”

Study Buddy uses dry-erase pens, photographs, graphics and/or original artwork that is prepared on reusable electronic cards. Parents and children can record an accompanying voice instruction that is unique for each card. Simply slip a photograph or artwork into one of the electronic cards, insert the card into Study Buddy’s card reader and record up to 10-seconds of customized audio that can be played back instantly. Until it is changed, each card corresponds exactly with its own unique audio segment.

The Study Buddy comes complete with 36 two-sided reusable, laminated cards that provide a total of 72 individual 10-second recordings which can be used over and over again or changed for years of learning fun and reinforcement.

Study Buddy can:

– Stimulate young children and assist with object identification, sorting and story writing skills

– Make math easier by showing a visual problem and including an audio with the equation and the answer

– Reinforce public safety issues such as identifying a stop sign with an audio segment saying, “This is a stop sign. It means to stop and look both ways”

– Assist grade and high-school students in learning and reading a foreign language

– Improve vocabulary in students of all ages by providing the word and a recorded definition

One-touch play and record makes the Study Buddy easy to operate for children of all ages, and its “record protect” feature keeps the recordings safe from accidental erasure or tampering. Available online at www.hamiltonelectronics.com and at select teacher stores nationwide. The Study Buddy runs on three AAA batteries and has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $69.75.
