Filmed in conjunction with the Torfaen School Board as a part of Microsoft's UK Surface launch, the Infusion team demonstrates the Infusion Education Suite for Microsoft Surface.
March 2009 - Torfaen, Wales, UK

Infusion has developed a set of educational activities for Microsoft Surface. These learning tools are designed for primary school students to help teach essential skills such as multiplication tables, basic language translation, or animal species classification. Each activity in the suite promotes a collaborative element that encourages the students to learn the presented material while interacting in a cooperative manner.

The application can be easily modified to include additional games or new content for existing games via the simple addition of an XML file. The Infusion Education Suite also includes a set of tags that, when placed on the Microsoft Surface, allow teachers to manipulate game dynamics and difficulty.

In addition, players each receive game tags that are used to identify individual students for the purposes of accumulating score and achievements. Each student's tag is associated with a custom in-game avatar they create. An attract screen allows students the opportunity to draw directly onto the Microsoft Surface and have their art appear as the background during games they play.

The Infusion Education Suite is a tool for students and teachers to deliver curriculum and concepts in a simple and enjoyable format. Infusions core capabilities in software development and user experience design mesh seamlessly to create a highly effective teaching application.
