The Amazing Wii

What tasks can it be used for in school?
The Wii can be used in math because the whole class can participate coming up with multiple choice questions, with the curriculum on a disc. It makes it more fun the sitting in desks answering questions all day. Also, in any class that needs a waking up, in P.E. even! In P.E. you can practice for a sport before you really play it. Or as a warm-up.
Would all students need one?
No. Students could come up, and take turns using it to answer questions. Anyways, they could be at the front of the class and all students participate in the course. There is no need for everyone to have a separate one.
How could the use of the technology add value or improve the lesson?
It would make it much more exciting and fun for the teacher and the students. One of the best ways to learn is by doing, so wouldn't students learn better if they were having fun? I sure would. It would improve the overall memory of the lesson. Like, "Oh, I remember fractions! That was the day I got to answer a question on the Wii!" As a fellow student, i think that would be great.
