Taking it Globe–Shout Webinar–using the Kinect SDK to create applications for learning

Want to give your students a voice? A voice of leadership? A voice that needs to be heard? Help them shout! Shout connects educators with rich content, tools and expertise that get students to take action on global issues.shout

This year the Shout programme have started doing technical sessions. UK Partners in Learning and TakingitGlobal will have it’s first session on Thursday, Feb 2 and you can learn how to program and create interactive Kinect games which are relevant in the classroom.

This year I have been given the opportunity to showcase some of the work that I have done with students at Lodge Park Technology College. I will be showing you some of the developments and I will also be giving you some tips on getting up and running with the Kinect. Kinect is a webcam-style add-on peripheral for the Xbox 360 console.
