  21. 21. Our son, Nicholas loves coming to lunchbox club. He has found the KODU game engrossing, so much so, that he does it during class time, when he thinks the teacher isn't watching, at the pick up zone (doesn't see me coming), any spare moment he can access his computer, and particularly at home, sometimes waking in middle of night and logging onto it. He has now had 2 luchtime detentions, one of which is today, for this infraction, and today received a Friday detention for playing a game (possibly today not actually the KODU) while his English teacher was talking to the class. So I have no choice, but to ban the game for him. I think it is too tempting at the moment to have such a readily available game on his tablet computer. I will get him to delete the game from his computer tonight I am not sure if it is best that he be banned from lunchbox club altogether, or whether he can just be banned from the game. I believe you do other interesting things in your club. What do you suggest? Thankyou Questions along the way

WHERE TO NEXT?  QSITE/ educational group connections  MeetUp connections  Maker Faire connections  Uni/ QUT/ STEM School connections  Networking outside the TL environment  New teaching relationships across campus  MORE DEPTH TO OUR ACTIVITIES IN LUNCHBOX  STRONGER CONTEXTUAL CONNECTIONS IN CURRICULUM
