Overview of CPS KINECT


The CPS Office of Instructional Tools and Technology is conducting a pilot program to evaluate the effectiveness of the Xbox KINECT game system to promote quality implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and other learning standards. We anticipate that this system will provide additional options for teachers to integrate educational technologies while promoting strong student engagement. By leveraging the Xbox Live Avatar KINECT platform, we will also examine the system's applications for supporting CCSS via virtual reality applications and videoconferencing. The pilot phase is expected to extend through the 2011-12 school year. Check this wiki for updates and artifacts provided by our pilot schools.
