A novel use of the Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP). Releasing front line staff for training can be expensive and can cause operational difficulties. In addition, the effectiveness of classroom style training is open to question. When Keith Quinn, Senior Education and Workforce Development Adviser with the Scottish Social Services Council, saw a demonstration of how the Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) console could be used in education, he quickly saw its potential to deliver on‑the-spot training in the workplace. In this episode Keith explains how it works, the potential cost savings and the impact on the quality of the learning.
