i am researching whether the xbox 360's kinect will be beneficial in education. In particular the physics discipline. I need some help in answering a few simple questions to see your opinions on whether it would be effective...
One of the most important attributes that adds value to the Kinect is the quality (functionality) of the product that differs from competitors. Through 3D depth sensors and RGB camera, the product enables customers to play controller-free and transform the body to be the controller. These highly developed sensors help identify and track the userís body motion inside the play area. (Xbox support) Further, Kinect sensors can automatically turn up and down when necessary. It turns down to find the floor, and then up to see the user in the play area (Xbox support).
From this and what you know about the Kinect could you answer the following questions...
Would you find it useful?
Who would you use it for?
Do you find students donít engage in certain areas of science?
What areas of learning in science are difficult for students to grasp, and the Kinect technology would help in?
Are you a parent?
Would you find using the Kinect-education useful to use at home?
Any other areas of study that it would be useful for?
In your opinion what would be the most appropriate age group to target for the Kinect-education?
i would really appreciate any help!
