Finguistics: An Educational Game for Surface


A UK-based educational software company called RM has a Microsoft Surface game for students in development meant to show how the computer can be used in an educational setting. There’s now a (long 10-minute) video of this game in action which is available for viewing here on YouTube. The video gives you a behind-the-scenes look at how the application was put together by RM, Lightbox, Infusion and Microsoft UK. “Finguistics,” in you’re wondering, is a word play application for Surface where students ages 5 and up, spell short words, make sentences, or play puzzle games in English, Spanish, and French. It sort of reminds me of magnetic poetry, I have to admit.

    Awesome. I'd love to see the Surface with special teaching/gaming applications for high school subjects.
