Special Video Report: Gestures & Learning - Kinect/XBOX Experiments

For the past few days, we have been exploring Gestures & Learning as we experiment with the new Kinect system that is part of Microsoft’s XBOX game console.

There are incredible implications for the use of Gestures: directly learned gestures, facial reactions and body movement feedback, as well as gesture screen control. We have been experimenting with these systems at The MASIE Center Learning LAB and with a group of college students at Skidmore College.

Watch a short video report on Gestures and Learning and read several reports on the “affordances” that Gesture technology may provide for learning designers.

We are quite interested in your feedback and thoughts as Gesture technology evolves. How can we direct and encourage the creative use of this in future designs?

Yours in learning,
Elliott Masie
