Abstract
(EN)
Apparatus and methods are provided for controlling education and amusement use of a television. The apparatus includes a switch (300) for switching an output between amusement input (306), and an education input (304). The output is coupled to a television input (216). A measuring device (322, 324), measures the amusement input when it is switched to the output. A controller device (320) controls switching of the educational input to the output when the measuring device measures a predetermined value for the amusement input, the controller keeps score of a user's response to the educational material displayed on the television, and controls switching of the amusement input to the output when the user attains a predetermined score.

La présente invention concerne un dispositif et un procédé de commande d'utilisation éducative et ludique d'un téléviseur. Le dispositif se compose d'un commutateur (300) basculant une sortie entre une entrée 'mode ludique' (306) et une entrée 'mode éducatif' (304). La sortie est couplée à une entrée téléviseur (216). Un appareil de mesure (322, 324) mesure l'entrée 'mode ludique' lorsqu'elle est basculée sur la sortie. Un contrôleur (320) commande la commutation de l'entrée 'mode éducatif' sur la sortie lorsque l'appareil de mesure trouve une valeur prédéterminée pour l'entrée 'mode ludique'. Le contrôleur garde le résultat des réponses de l'utilisateur au matériel éducatif présenté à l'écran, et commande la commutation de l'entrée 'mode ludique' sur la sortie lorsque l'utilisateur atteint un résultat prédéterminé.
