Kinect and the Worldwide Telescope

I have been talking to Teachers about the Microsoft Worldwide Telescope for a few years now. The feedback and reaction from all of those that have be using it is unanimously extremely positive. What I’ve been waiting for since the pre-Christmas launch of the Microsoft  Xbox 360 Kinect is to see how the Kinect can be utilized in the classroom.

This is one of the 1st videos I’ve seen that is starting to show this power of this device for a learning environment. I admit that it’s not of the greatest quality but it gives you a good idea of where we’re heading.
