Wii and Weather
The Wii now uses current weather conditions for regions to control the weather in certain games. I’m just thinking of all the cool things that you could do with games that incorporate real data on the fly. Want to create virtual labs that use real data being generated in space?
Makes you wonder how long education can continue to ignore the power and possibilities inherent in these gaming platforms. My goal is to never again complain about education.Â It’s up to me to change things.Â What I should have asked is how am I going to start using gaming platforms?Â How am I go to convince teachers around me to start using them?Â It’s also a pretty powerful argument for focusing on creating data that can easily be reused by multiple applications.
