I was lucky enough to be invited to a demo of LTScotland’s Consolarium earlier today. The Consolarium is the brainchild of Derek Robertson and focusses on the value of learning through games. Derek has (in a relatively short time) initiated a number of case studies with impressive results, including the use of:
- Dr Kawashima’s Brain training with P4 pupils
- Guitar Hero as the focus for a primary / secondary transition
- the use of role playing games.
Talk about motivation!
