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!"

Lately, when I have been talking to other teachers about how I and other educators in the TDSB, namely Liam and Diana, have been using Minecraft in our classes.  I hear a lot of people say: "I would love to do that, but I'm n...
