I am so excited for the coming April release of the Nintendo Labo. It’s one part google cardboard, one part Mario brothers, and all parts forward thinking. I was already eyeing a Switch the other day as part of my growing acceptance of gaming in my children’s lives. (Something I will have to write more on soon). The point is that gaming, that formerly dirty habit of lazy, non-productive peoples, is moving firmly in the direction of authentic education. Education should be a game and games should be educational. And I am ashamed to say that many smart people saw that connection a long time ago. I’m just glad to see it while I a) have young kids and b) still have 20 years left of teaching in me.
