  • There are a significant number of commercially available titles that have great application for use in the curriculum – educationally valid, and having a significant impact on the engagement of the pupil in their learning.
  • Our games design work has also really started to take off and authorities from all over Scotland have really bought into the initiative which will provide support and resources for a progressive 3 -18 which we hope will develop and equip Scotland's next generation of games makers.
  • …or indeed games like man hunt where you suffocate people with a plastic bag (another Scottish classic!) becomes available on a new generation of consoles…
  • … such as Project Natal (launching in Q4 2010) where you don’t need a controller as it has full body recognition creating real immersive game play allowing you to act out complex sequences and violence.
  • Health Warning
  • Thank you.
