I am wondering (like this link) if there is anything to be gained by using Little Big Planet in primary schools. I think it may be the game itself or the preparation or follow up that relates to the game. Even Obama thinks there might be something in it. They have been called contextual hubs like work with Myst from a number of years ago.
My difficulty is that I struggle to see how we can ration the time withe game so everyone gets a go but also that the learners have long enough with the game to move on and be motivated.
I think there might be something in it if we could only scale the solution to class sizes. I have a similar hunch that animal crossing on the Wii with Wii Speak might also be good for Early Years learners.
