The Black Belt Community Foundation and Hatch Early Learning unveiled a new high-tech device for kids last week to improve their learning skills.

The Hatch Early Learning Ignite Tables is an innovative new educational tool that uses artificial intelligence to assist young educators through a partnership with the BBCF., serving four counties: ChoctawDallasMarengo, and Wilcox.

Taquila Monroe, Director of the Black Belt Community Foundation Head Start Program, is excited about the program.

“The table has those performance-based measures embedded within it,” Monroe said. “This collaboration with Hatch Early Learning represents a major milestone for our community. The introduction of broadband and the implementation of the IgniteTable solution will revolutionize the way our students learn and provide our educators with powerful tools to inspire and engage young minds. We are grateful for Hatch’s support in advancing our educational initiatives and making a lasting difference in the lives of our children.”

“It’s a multi-touch table,” said Marion Soare with Hatch Early Learning. “It has 80 touchpoints. And it has embedded a recording of audio and video which helps the teachers observe while children are interacting with the table.”
