Creating Gamertags
I have a few names that I have used repeatedly as I hop from one computer game to another.  There are two names I use most often; both from my days playing W.O.W., but I have had other names in other games too.  Most of my friends and family have one gamert...

Online Gaming and Digital Citizenship
I have been thinking about this for some time.  I was planning to see if I could find articles about digital citizenship as it relates to gaming, but I never got around to it.  So I will just share what I think based on what I have heard from people, experi...

Yesterday, during our Minecraft club, the one wooden bridge (out of 5 bridges) finally caught fire.  I was surprised that it took almost a year before it happened.  Although it is entirely possibility it has happened before and was fixed using the same materials.  As we watched it burn 2 of the grade 6 students sang "This bridge is on fire!"
