Today my daughter stayed home sick. I think now I have a problem, Fortnite. I can totally see why the kids talk about it, watch videos of other people playing and can’t wait to get home to play again.
That got us thinking… what if we offered a summer class for teachers? Maybe have them play things like Minecraft and Fortnite, then explore various social media sites. The big idea is to learn a little bit more about the lives their kids lead.
Would this make a difference? Would knowing where your kids are at and investing time exploring those worlds might help make new connections.
It is kinda like showing up at one of your student’s sports games.
Then again maybe it is just a way for me to play these games at work and call it research.
