Top Applications for Kinect in Education

The results are in! After compiling results, these are the top application categories educators would like to see “Kinectified” with key bindings for use in their classrooms:

I could focus on specific applications (with the exception of Google Earth), but my intent is to decentralize control and have the community determine the direction of a lot of these initiatives.

The key binding contributions for each of these application categories have been placed in the community forums.

A couple of guiding suggestions:

  • - Determine what the most appropriate software is within each category
  • - How to compartmentalize efforts so contributors are working on unique components (meaning each person’s role is to focus on key binding gestures for specific features.

Contributors will be acknowledged in credits when this project is presented to Microsoft (official press release coming soon).
