MS Subverting The Japanese Youth

Classrooms in Japan will be getting some Xboxes, but not for their typical purpose of playing games. Microsoft announced today that it will be donating Xbox consoles enabled with video chat capabilities to all elementary and junior high schools in Tokyo's Suginami ward for educational purposes, starting in late June. A total of 80 Xbox units will be given out to 44 grade schools, 23 junior high schools, and eight other public facilities in Suginami. Microsoft hopes that its donations will help educate the children to become more IT literate. The consoles will allow Microsoft to teach the students how to use videoconferencing to take online classes and communicate with other Xbox Live-enabled schools. "Microsoft has been supporting teachers and students to become IT literate in the current education system that is advancing toward the use of IT. Our donation of the Xbox is one of our activities to strengthen the IT environment to schools," said Microsoft in its press release. "We hope this will become a good model case where TV video conferencing is used effectively in the education system."
