Kinect is continually proving to provide instructors and learners with new ways to engage with content. One innovative tool harnessing the power of Kinect is Nuvixa’s StagePresence. StagePresence provides plenty of justification to purchase a Kinect for any classroom implementing podcasts. Using StagePresence and Kinect, the “flipped classroom model” can be taken to an entirely new level.
Any instructor implementing podcasts or videocasts (“vodcasts”) needs to consider using this tool to leverage the time they’re already spending creating supplemental content. StagePresence allows viewers to actually see the instructor solving the problem. Traditional podcasting methods typically only allow for a screen recording of a problem being solved. While that’s effective, I would highly speculate that the viewer (learner) is more engaged when they can actually see their instructor solving problems.
I plan to use this to create daily video instruction for my students and parents to view on their mobile devices or computers.
You can download a “Sneak Peak” of StagePresence from Nuvixa’s website. Check out my video example below for a visual example and imagine students being able to load similar content on their mobile devices and other accessible technology. In addition to what I show here, there are many other features of this software that I will showcase in the near future.
