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.
