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.
