    Thanks for doing a presentation around gaming. I need to come back to listen again, but I hope educators are thinking of how to help their students make the shift from player (consumer) to creator. I do worry about the commercialization of the gaming process, but I also see it as a unique learning experience, for much of the same reasons that you do. My sixth graders are now in the midst of a science-based game design project, and they are fully engaged in many ways.
    Sincerely,
    Kevin
