You probably have a Nintendo DS game console or a family member does
(most likely your child). Today, Nintendo unveiled a classroom
solution utilizing the Nintendo DS with a turnkey solution which
includes the software and the server components to make it possible to
use the Nintendo DS to deliver education called Nintendo DS
Kyoushitsu. The premise is that you load a computer with the server
software, and pop in the classroom cartridge to the DS and the game
consoles connect to the computer using the client and server software
which can accommodate up to 50 DS consoles per 1 server. Since the
game console has wifi, everything is done wireless as well and local.
There are planned activities for kanji, math, civics, physics, and
history, but new activities can also be added with a spreadsheet
interface. The product and service offering is expected to be released
by Feb 2010.
