    How about using it to teach people English?

    If your school is anything like ours, there are going to be a lot of EAL/non-English speaking students.

    If you can make it to Bett in the next couple of days there was a stand showing off the Kinect in education - i didn't go over but from a distance looked good.

    If you are interested in Kinect in Education then the MS Education blog and the MS Partners in Learning blog has a fair bit on it from the K-Team ... For some more direct ideas then I would recommend Ray Chambers' blog.

    Ray will be at BETT tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday ... but others in the K-Team are also around.

    THere are a lot of pupils from eastern europe and asian background so that could be an idea to discuss with schools.
