Kinect in the Classroom

Kinect in the Classroom | Educational technology | Scoop.it

One of the most interesting ways game-based learning (GBL) is being implemented is with the use of Microsoft’s Kinect. Kinect specifically is an accessory to the Xbox 360, where motion and gestures control game functions. From sports games, to “hack and slash,” the Kinect physically involves the player in gameplay. But why use it in the classroom? And how should you use it in the classroom? Today I present not only a great rationale for use the Kinect in the classroom, but also some specific ideas and resources for doing so.

Interesting that this author thinks that the real breakthrough this year for AR apps could come from those apps designed for museums,zoos and other fun places . Matmia are working on an AR app for a popular theme park to be released very soon - hopefully it will be a big part of the massive growth in the use of AR this year. - HK

Plethora of educational gaming sites that are geared towards elementary students. I've used http://funbrain.com and http://abcya.com before with my Kindergartners. A center-orientated system could be effective in getting kids to rotate from computer to computer, entrenching them in different subjects such as reading, writing, spelling, and math.
