Kinect in de Klas
Enjoyable education for and with children
Creating your own game and learning whilst doing so. Kinect in de Klas (Kinect in the Classroom) makes it possible. The system is developed together with Beam It Up and Van Alles Wat Ontwerp.
The basic games are filled with drawings the children made a few minutes ago. Backgrounds, helmets, swords; name it, draw it, photograph it and upload it. The Microsoft Kinect camera is used to place the player in his of her freshly drawn world on the tv or beamer. It’s up to the teacher to decide the theme of the game; the Egyptians, the future, the desert.. Whatever the theme, the children quickly engage with the subject and are allowed to move intensively during class. Game’s on!
