@EdTechCaitlin I’m thinking “Makers’ Club” - that way we can integrate coding, & more… What do you think?

@RossCoops31 I think I’ve decided to call the club “Makers Club” - that way app creation can be included too! h/t @kamtonnes

@EdTechCaitlin virtual builders might work… any other suggestions?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to EdTechCaitlin

@jokay ok super - thanks for the virtual intro to guru & club sponsor @Ajnin123 :-)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jokay

@jokay we certainly could do that. What would I call the club, then? It wouldn’t B just “Scratch Club.” Scratch isn’t just gaming…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jokay

@jokay Well I can’t do 2 days a week, just 1… We could call it a gaming or coding club & let students do either one?

@WoWandMintTea thanks for the tip to invest in Minecraft Explorer Pro HD app itunes.apple.com/us/app/minecra…

via Twubs

ISTEMLN @kzenovka How do we teach Ss when it is appropriate or not? What are consequences for griefing other?

@VivienTuckerman how did you handle discipline in this virtual setting / situation?

via Twubs in reply to VivienTuckerman

@knowclue I think that’s a gr8 question. Too often we’re pursuing gamification as Ts like “chocolate brocolli” (to quote @EdGamer)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to knowclue

knowclue IMHO, this is critical Q for teachers- will we use to TEACH, or will we LEARN 2 trust the learning embedded in the play?
