I saw this while looking for Microsoft Kinect's educational applications. It's a program which uses voice recognition via the Kinect. In the article it's used to navigate through computer programs, but imagine if we could use it to navigate through a lesson. Even better, imagine using this idea to create a study partner that would teach, ask questions, guide, correct, and maybe even evaluate students... No need to get a supply, just have GlaDOS take over for the day! So many possibilities...
