Japanese students schooled with Nintendo

Reuters: Nintendo is banned everywhere but the classroom at Tokyo Joshi Gakuen school in Japan as the ubiquitous DS consoles become the latest tool in English instruction.

Junior high school teacher Motoko Okubo has used the handheld DS and textbook software since May in weekly sessions focusing on vocabulary, penmanship and audio comprehension. With years of games such as Super Mario on the prohibited list, she says students weren't expecting the Nintendo welcome. (Industry, Nintendo DS, Wii)

And of course, nobody pays attention to good things like this. All attention is focused on games like GTA IV. Video games are so bad for kids! I need to go send out an army of gnomes to bite the keecaps of all video game haters.

Microsoft teaches young children to be racist.
if you have small children in your home do not let them play xbox360.
you dont know what you might hear as they seem to hunt for small children and tell them to stfu until your balls drop, that seems to be a xbox live must say.

Microsoft have you any Shame?!?

So lucky
The teachers at my school dont even know what the stuff we have does. So they take it all saying we could cheat on tests with it. Why dont they watch us while we test instead of sitting in their chair saying "keep your eyes on your own paper."
