What is the new technology?
I chose the Wii as my technology. It integrates fun and active learning by getting you up and moving.

How is it used in everyday life for communication or creativity?
It promotes active video games making it easy to have fun and stay fit. There can be internet acess and daily weather and news forwarded straight to it if you want it. Some games have focused completely on education or fitness.

Where do you get it and how much does it cost?
Most electronic stores will sell it and it usually goes for about 300 US dollars. Some stores provide them in different colours. Also, you can by them on Amazon is you do not mind wating.

What are the brands or models available?
Though only Nintendo sells this product, it comes in special editions. You may be able to find a different colour, but they are usually limited edition. There's a rumour that they may start selling different skin colours for them. That gives you the chance to personalize them.

How can the Wii be intergrated into school?
The wii provides fitness and fun for students. It's scientifically proven that kids learn much better when they do something fun to learn it. Wii does just that. There is a game completely dedicated to education, and this game is called Brain Academy. Using it will create fun activities and rewards for students. If the school really wanted to go far, they could create a program for the Wii, and the Wii will do the rest.

There you go, the Wii. An all around school helper. :D
