Children at a secondary school in Birmingham, UK will soon receive a variety of tailor-made lessons via PlayStation Portable
. Teachers have been trained how to use the PSP to watch videos, download pictures, and play their own podcasts
. The trial begins just after Easter and will continue through the end of the year. If the experiment is a success plans are to extend it to more schools in the area.
Think students will start sneaking games into class? The teachers disagree, saying it would be "very obvious if anyone tried to load games onto them". They're right. It's hard to sit through long load times
without breaking furniture.
