I watched a presentation by Lucas Gilespie a few years ago at an ISTE Conference, ( I think the last time it was in Philadelphia). At the time he talked about using World of Warcraft with his students, which was about as trend setting as it gets back then (and even now!). Following from afar, I see he is still pushing the envelope with W.O.W but is also using Minecraft and more. I invited Lucas to the show to catch up on his latest and greatest ideas. What I admire about Lucas is not only that he is willing to break educational barriers, but that he has the background knowledge to put his pedagogical practice to best use.
