Kinect Integrated with Mobile Devices: The New Classroom?
If you’re looking for ways to further explore the use of mobile devices in education, you’ve found it.
Last month, I wrote a post featuring ways to integrate the Kinect in the classroom. Kinect hackers – and even Microsoft themselves – are now exploring ways to integrate mobile devices with the Kinect; specifically, the iPhone, iPad, and Android tablets. Below are videos featuring the integration of the Kinect with these mobile devices.
How educators will implement this in the classroom is yet to be discovered. This is very, very preliminary but still showcases how educators can further capitalize on the use of familiar devices already in the hands of students. Furthermore, it’s very clear that a setup like this virtually eliminates classroom walls while still maintaining the necessary structure required to operate a school. Stay tuned for further updates!

Kinect and Android Tablet Integration (very early stages, but showing it’s technically possible)
