The Youth Digital Mod 1 course is teaching my son how to mod minecraft. He loves it and is using Java at the same time. This is my review.
Two years ago, I visited a school in Brooklyn called P-TECH, the Pathways in Technology early college high school, which seemed very much like the future of education to me.

My hiring policy includes finding out if teachers have tweens at home. If not, they'll not be able to keep up. 18 year olds tend to be "over the hill" when it comes to new technology. Give me a new teacher with a 6, 9, and 12 year old, and I'll be comfortable knowing that they'll be able to address the "tech challenge" in education for at least a decade.

Can you teach grit? The research has teachers abuzz about this term. Let's explore and learn how to teach it and talk about it.
One of things I've learned about motivation is about intrinsic rewards over extrinsic rewards. as having more impact on grit-like qualities in people. When you are only focusing on your own interests, rather than what you will get from others (they will always disappoint), you are more willing to take risks to achieve the goals. Your goals are more important to you. some research even suggests that extrinsic rewards take away power of your intrinsic rewards. This may be the true danger of "selling out", something that is not necessarily a sign of immaturity but an insight into the relationships of intrinsic rewards to extrinsic rewards and autonomy.

Not hard to imagine a Heavenly Father who is a Creator. "Making" things seems to be hardwired into us. This propensity is a challenge to address with classes of 30 students, but sometimes just as challenging when there is only one. Many are finding an outlet in virtual worlds such as Minecraft. I have my reservations about that particular platform for a number of reasons, but other platforms such as Active Worlds can be far more powerful and practical, both at school & and home. See my Instagram page for examples of this http://instagram.com/gordholden or Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/80069060@N06 or
