Pioneering use of PSPs - but they're not allowed to play games?!
Games Digest and the BBC reporting on a Birmingham school which is doing "pioneering work" in the use of Sony's PSP gaming console in the classroom - but forbidding kids to play any games on them. What? Talk about missed opportunities:
"The big key is independent learning," she 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." [Yes, looking good so far...]
And she is sure any attempts to run games on the consoles would soon be found out.
"You are talking about access to all kinds of resources, but it would be very obvious if anyone tried to load games onto them." [how will they know?]
