XBox Kinect and 'Best Practices' for Student Learning

If you want to better understand how to redesign your courses for future students, you need to play Dance Central 2 on the XBox Kinect. Here's why:
  1. Personal Learning plans for students with a wide variety of experience levels
  2. Intermediate 'assessments' that reward and encourage in a safe environment
  3. Information is presented in a variety of ways to allow students to build skills they need, and skip those they have already mastered
  4. Collaborative learning environments both face-to-face and virtual.
  5. Fun and creative ways to practice skills combining music and visually appealing graphics
There is a lot of information on Game-based learning and Gesture-based computing, but I believe that just playing Dance Central for 30 minutes will help you understand these theories much better.

  1. It's a nice way of putting theory into practice. Actually practical practice.
