One Response to Podcast423: Mystery Skype, Minecraft, iPad Digital Portfolios, & More with Shelly Fryer

    A big thanks to both Wes and Shelly for this podcast. It’s inspired me to try out Minecraft for two of my classes for the next school year. I’ve already learned how to set up the Minecraft Edu server (relatively easy) and starting to learn how to play the game (much harder!). Mystery Skype and Hovercraft are two more great resources I learned about. It’s nice to end a school year with some ideas I’m excited about to get to in the next one.Thanks again for taking the time to do this and sharing these great ideas.
