PlayStation®Portable (PSP™) in Education


PlayStation® in Education

Over the last 3 years, PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) has been purchased and used extensively by thousands of students in hundreds of UK educational and training institutions. The combination of the PSP system’s games heritage and its ability to capture and play open standard educational digital content via audio, video, and internet has made it a compelling mobile learning platform.

Students can now use existing ‘games based technology’ platforms like PSP to access real and engaging educational content. In the UK there are now over 3.6 million PSP systems in circulation and 56 million world-wide. The PSP 3000 provides students with a low cost, easy access route to rich media and compliments the new ‘high end’ PSP™go as well as integrating with the new slimmer PlayStation® 3 (PS3™) games and media console.


SECOND SIGHT on PlayStation®

Second Sight is a new ‘augmented reality’ programme for mainstream education and training, that enhances student and teacher’s access to audio, video and interactive educational content on PSP. This ground breaking new technology works with traditional printed content to trigger audio, video and interactive 3D images. Second Sight enables teachers to blend the use of their established text books, display materials and audio visual content in a way that has not been easy to deploy in the classroom before. Using Second Sight teachers and practitioners can easily create their own content for use. Second Sight comprises a PC based content creation suite and a second sight viewer UMD for the PSP.
