I am interested in how to create resources that encourage students to use the same quality of thinking and effort in their schoolwork as they do in their computer game play.

We have attempted to bring some of these elements into materials we have designed or are currently designing. I would be happy to present these and get feedback. 

I would like to hear from others about their successes and failures in transferring computer game and online behaviour into academic work.

Oh my god.. what a great idea...

instead of fighting them about it... use them! Great! Let's talk about it!

I've used texting as a way of getting feedback from students during a presentation on internet safety and it was great. I'd love to use Facebook too, but it is blocked in our network.

See you tomorrow!
