We are planning to use Kodu as a tool to teach some programming at KS3, and I would really like a class sets of joypads for students touse. The Xbox pad for Windows is around £20, meaning to fill 2 rooms would be £800+, students sharing would still cost £400 or so. A few questions I am hoping someone will be kind enough to help me with: Does anyone know if cheaper pads (unofficial) work with Kodu? Do M$ offer any discounts on this sort of equipment? Is it worth becoming a M$ Academy with the view they might be able to support with this?
