I tried out using Minecraft in my 8th grade algebra class a few years ago.

Thanks for the comment Mike.

One of the things that I always try to consider is whether a technology integration strategy is replicable by other teachers. My guess is that you’re good at making connections between real-life and course objectives in all sorts of situations. Would you recommend Minecraft to a colleague who is less adept at this though?

I’m simply speaking against “flavor-of-the-month” pedagogical practices that require most teachers to spend large amounts of preparation (in skill acquisition, cost, and technical rollout) when the payoff is disproportionately small.
