Not sure what we are just yet! Just looking to create a great visual repository of resources for Kinect in Education! Jun 5
Students, educators, and enthusiasts are creating amazing things with Microsoft’s Kinect for education. While new Kinect development resources are constantly emerging, here are 9 people-driven and digital resources that offer assistance for developing Kinect applications. Channel 9 has projects, guides, and people to help create future software for classrooms. Channel 9 describes themselves as a community that brings forward people behind Microsoft’s products and connects them with those who use them.
9 Excellent Programming Resources for Kinect
Today's inspirational project is one that you just have to see to believe. It shows how the Kinect, melded with a projector can make learning (and more) into something fairly amazing... The Spatial Augmented Game Environment, known as S.A.G.E., is a project that marries the spatial recognition of the Xbox 360 Kinect and a projector to create a completely unique learning experience.

Put down the measuring tape. Using the Kinect to find your height | Coding4Fun Kinect Projects
When I saw this, the first thing I thought was just how cool a thing an amusement park could build with this. Gone could be the days of the "You must be taller than this bar," instead replaced with an interactive, themed for the park, height measurement experience. Image standing there with a virtual Mickey or Donald or Bugs Bunny and using the Kinect to measure your children's height, compared to them? (Can't you just see Mickey holding up his virtual hand over a child's head and saying, "Great!

This site is not directly related to Kinect, but the Brain Rules Ideas fit in with what the Kinect can do for the brain if applied in a classroom. There are some great videos and the book is available there too. by Sep 17
Get Students Engaged: Learning through Motion with Kinect for Education Easy to use and instantly fun, Kinect gets students’ whole body—and attention—into learning fun. Students can use their arms as the hands on a clock to form the correct time, or play a game where they read “red” on the screen then vigorously pop all the red balloons. Students can even collaborate on projects using avatars. For more than 100 classroom and after-school activities, click the School activity plans tab on this page.

(Credit: James Martin/CNET) LOS ANGELES--If you thought Microsoft's motion-sensing controllerless technology Kinect was going to take a back seat this year, you were wrong. In the minutes leading up to the press conference's start, I first noticed a trio of Kinect sensors slyly facing the stage. It would be a telling premonition of what was in store for the world's fastest-selling electronic gadget .

Cheryl Arnett is an elementary teacher from Craig, Colorado. In 2010, she was a winner in Microsoft’s US Partner in Learning event. I had the opportunity to meet Cheryl this past summer and have maintained contact with her through an initiative we are working on together with to develop Kinect activities .

9 Incredible Developments for Kinect in Education
For those of us raised in typical school settings, the memory of straight-row desks with little activity is all too familiar. As we’re all aware, the Kinect has the potential to evolve classrooms beyond this 18 th century model of learning to a structure that’s aligned with brain research and the benefits of active learning . With the release of the noncommercial Kinect SDK, several new Kinect applications are emerging. These range from simple apps (such as creating “3D air drawings”) to more complex applications (such as sign language recognition). Regardless, every single one of these developments has the potential to drastically enhance teaching and learning in all learning environments.

*If the infrared beams that power Kinects and Leaps can penetrate that elastic fabric, we’ve got a very interesting haptic interface here. Imagine this with sub-millimeter accuracy. *In some ways it’s even more interesting than a “Corning day made of glass” — because it’s a day made of silk.
