    Hi all,

    As some of you know I was off in the US last week taking part in a training course for media studies tutors who want to start incorporating games into their courses.

    And we played games in between and after the work…they had a lot of diff stuff available for us to try out…PSPs, XBoxs, PS2s, dance mats, EyeToy, World of Warcraft etc..

    We ran a kind of wiki all week which has some useful resources on it….
    Also might be useful as a resource for running something similar over here…

    The URL is long…sorry..

    PS. and another crazy pic with me in it!
