Sony PSP as an education tool?
Yesterday morning, I heard an interesting news from BBC News on the radio. One of secondary school in Birmingham (UK) named Holyhead Secondary School is in a trial, using PlayStation Portable as a device to support learning process in school 😀 At first, it will be used in French, History, and Geography lessons. The trial will be finished in the end of the school year. And if this plan succeeded, it will be extended and maybe PSP will be used all over UK’s schools.
French languace teacher of that school who used to work for Sony said, “The console is just like a mini-computer, but fast, and you can use it to tailor-make lessons for pupils who need support or stretching”. The students are not allowed to run any kind of games on the console 😛 (could we do this? lol)
