Making Sense of the Solar System with SONY PlayStation

Mark Sutton, Assistant Curriculum Leader for Design and Technology and lead teacher for the development of new technologies at Soar Valley Community College in Leicester has found a way to get students to grasp this often confusing concept using the SONY PlayStation Portable (PSP). Using an augmented reality program called SECOND SIGHT which works on a PSP, Mark worked with a group of year 7 and year 10 students to work through the concept of space, time and infinity in the solar system. Using reality as the canvas the software allows for interactive elements to be “superimposed” over what the camera sees, therefore enhancing what the students see and experience.
