TR-0 as Coach: Section 3

Page 1 of 1: Drills 1-3

You're a coach for a while.
  1. Sit in front of the computer screen. These drills are similar to those in Section 2, except that each lasts fifteen minutes. Refer back to Section 2 if you need to. By watching the movie carefully without letting your attention wander you will see three code-words, such as "dear", "little", "puppy". Check for the link (in this case) of
    http://fzglobal.org/robot/TRs0-4/dear_little_puppy.htm
    by typing the words into the address bar (you only need to change the end of the address). If you got it right you'll know it.

  2. As coach, say "TR-0. Start".

  3. Play the first movie and flunk the student and write down the words as you see them over the course of the fifteen minutes. If you missed a word watch the whole movie again. Once you have got the first set of three, close out that movie and go on to the second one.

  4. Each word is onscreen for exactly half a second, appearing in red over (not above) the character's eyes. He will "smile" at the same time for exactly half a second. A blink lasts about 1/11 of a second on average. Persistence of vision will allow you to capture the word if you pay close attention, even if you blink.

  5. The words onscreen are all in upper case letters (capitals). Change these to all lower case when typing the web address, as before, i.e. "dear_little..." and not "DEAR_LITTLE..."

  6. At the end of your drilling, end it off by saying aloud, "That's it".

  7. Hit "Rub" and do the usual rub thing for a minute or more until any unexpressed yawns are discharged.

  8. Hit "Next".
