Britain’s teenagers lead the world in hand-eye coordination, a survey revealed today. The in-depth study which was sponsored by leading software technology company Nintendo puts the UK’s youth firmly in the international top slot when it comes to visual tracking via thumbpad controls.
The news comes as little surprise to Education secretary Michael Gove who already has plans to introduce a new BTEC in hand-eye coordination from September.
It’s believed that the BTEC Level 1 in Hand-Eye Coordination will be marked by online continual assessment, with no need for tutors. Students will be able to complete the course at home in their spare time. The £39.99 courseware will be available from the recently appointed specialist educational courseware supplier GAME.
Once students have successfully completed their course they will be able to return their completed courseware to receive their BTEC Level 1, or go on to complete more levels. Those who complete all 250 levels will be able to trade in their BTEC for a set of Pokemon cards or a traineeship in Poundland.
Nintendo spokesperson Mario commented: “Wa-hoo!”
