Hi all,

I work at a school who are looking to use the Nintendo DS and some of the educational software with students to help boost things like basic literacy and numeracy skills.

I am basically asking for help from anyone who has experience with this software or experience of using DSs in a school environment... What is the potential of this project?

I would welcome any advice ranging from suitable software available to the logistics of looking after and charging a class set. ... Can feedback from a class set of DSs be sent to a teacher?

Please - if you have any knowledge or experience that you think we would benefit from however small, it would be much appreciated.

Have started to experiment with Nintendo DS Big Brain Academy (http://www.bigbrainacademy.com/) and  am quite impressed from a motivational perspective but 'tasks' can not be modified to suit individual needs. Woudn't it be great if there was a framework that allowed modification of parametrs and individualisation?
