Using A Wii in the Classroom

Another great Edutopia article, this time on using the Nintendo Wii in the classroom. I suspect this is for the younger grades, but the author shows interesting ways to utilize some of the sports games t reinforce math concepts. There are apparently also some features on the Wii that might allow kids to do work in geography and meteorology.

I have to say that the Wii seems a bit on the silly side, but the article does make the case to at least consider using it as a tool to engage kids. I don't know that there's much here for Middle and Upper School kids, but who knows?
