Microsoft Europe – Students with disabilities eliminate barriers with Kinect


An article written by me and professor Marco Medeiros for the Microsoft Europe site about our experience with Kinect in the classroom.



“With Kinect the students were no longer limited to a chair plugged to a table, they were dancing with their peers in front of the screen and in this way also practicing their motoric and coordination skills. This dynamic allowed us to shape the game according to the student´s needs, adding extra rules etc. and in this way we could continue to develop the students´ skills.”
