Abstract

This paper presents the preliminary findings of a larger project aimed at identifying the potential of the new generation of games consoles to support learners with disabilities. The Nintendo Wii represents an innovation in the method of interaction for players with games through the use of a remote control device that provides a more intuitive and realistic means of control. Taking selected simulation, team and adventure games and evaluating them with focus groups of students with particular types of disability, the objective is to evaluate and identify the accessibility of this type of games console and the associated games and to explore its potential for supporting disabled learners in an educational context.
