It's amazing the people you meet in the education business and particularly at conferences. I was sitting blogging in one of the breakout rooms at Handheld Learning 06 yesterday when I got chatting to this guy, Renaldo Lawrence.
We got talking about Flash and and I told him that I liked to dabble in it and that I had taught undergraduate teaching students how to begin using it. We had a look at my Game for Going Native article on the LTS website and then he showed me his Flash stuff from his website www.rllearning.com.
It turned out that Renaldo was from South Carolina in the USA but that he made his life over in England and was a teacher at St John the Baptist school in Woking.
It seems that Renaldo is very keen to get in to the Flash training market and his site is rather cool in terms of how he has nicely packaged together a range of learning materials within the Flash interface. What really appealed to me though was the fact that he has packaged up a number of his learning materials so that they can be downloaded in mp4 format to the Sony PSP. This seemed to have been quite a common thread in this conference. The ability that games devices such as the PSP and the DS have as storage devices or as web browsers.
This helps when promoting consoles in education because the more than just gaming argument can be pushed. But hey, what is there more than gaming?!;)
