very gently and quietly...I think Anderson is talking about shoot-em up games and feeling the shots! And feeling what it is like to blast the smithereens out of a virtual character.....awesome but not for education Ryan...we need to agree on that OK
But the idea of a joystick-timely, nice and adds to choice as opposed to the arrow keys/mouse...I am thinking the Xbox controller is obviously a winner in terms of minecraft popularity for sure-very accessible for kids.
I do think a control something like the one above, would allow greater interaction for the learner to get into the game/virtual engagement certainly in terms of engaging different ways of experiencing a learning situation....would something like this enhance learning?....am not sure. I would need to see it in action or read a spec first....I like the topography affordances for sure.....so it is a question of curric mapping again to really know the potential of this/joystick-type hardware/addition-going to post on the other thread next....and so links might be apparent there too....
