About a month ago, I had the honour of speaking with the legendary Howard Rheingold about the GamingEdus Minecraft project I launched with some amazing teachers and the folks at EDGE Lab at Ryerson University.

Our chat was for a larger piece for DML Central, about Minecraft and it’s power for learning.  You can read the article on the DML Central blog. You can also watch the video embedded below (aren’t you lucky?)

So what do you think about “Messy Learning” in Minecraft? Would love to hear your thoughts or ideas about using this game with students in the comments below.

And thanks to Melanie McBride for setting up the interview and all the people at EDGE Lab for making the project possible.
