Kinect-based games shown to have positive impact on children with learning difficulties | Wired UK

Kinect-based games shown to have positive impact on children with learning difficulties | Wired UK | Matthew Jorgensen's World of MicroSoft Learning | Scoop.it

A company called Kinems is using personalised, video game-based learning to improve the skills of children with motor impairments and learning difficulties.

 

Working with Microsoft Kinect, Kinems develops unique educational games designed to help children with a variety of learning difficulties including dyspraxia, autism, ADHD, dyslexia and dyscalculia.

 

The games have been designed in conjunction with educators and therapists in order to mimic exercises the children already have to do as part of their education or therapy. The idea is that by integrating them them into computer-based gaming activities, the exercises increase children's attention, motivation and pleasure during therapy sessions, which in turn will speed up the rate at which they acquire skills.

 

In line with existing therapeutic protocols, the games have been designed to improve a range of skills, including hand-eye coordination, short-term memory, attention span, following directions, sequencing and problem solving. Each game is completely customisable, so can be adjusted to suit the preferences and ability of an individual child. The games also record each child's results, giving therapists, parents and teachers the ability to track and analyse their progress.

The template consists of 4 Focus Areas. Each stage of the SAMR model consists of 4 focus areas in the template, that support vision, planning, and evaluation in activity and task design as well as a professional development framework."

If you are considering using the SAMR model to design lesson plans/units you should consider checking out this post. There is a very detailed template that helps you walk through the steps and consider how to best design your lesson/unit. The template is detailed and you may download it as a pdf. An example is included.

Many are turning to the SAMR model as a guide to integrate technology into their curriculum. If this model is new to you search this Scoop.it or type SAMR in your favorite search engine and you will find a wide variety of resources.
