  1. Hi Jason,
    I am brand new to the world of blogging, although I have heard many other educators use this outlet to inform and discuss important topics. I will consider this further now. Technology has become the expected supplemental activities’ form in classrooms everywhere. You’re right though; technology needs to be purposeful, not just be incorporated to say it was. Minecraft is huge nowadays. I am also going to research how to use this in my classroom.
