Is Fortnite in your school?

Greetings all,
I found this article on Education Week: **Decoding Fortnite: 5 Things Educators Need to Know About the Hit Video Game **

  1. The game can be played across different devices, which may allow students to have access in school.
  2. Keeping Fortnite out of classrooms may not be as simple as blocking it on the building WiFi.
  3. When web filtering solutions aren't 100 percent effective, there are low-tech options available for removing distraction.
  4. Some educators are looking for ways to incorporate the game into instruction.
  5. Even without integrating the game into lessons, teachers can leverage students' interest in Fortnite as an opportunity to build connections.

Here is a link to the full article: http://blogs.edweek.org/edweek/DigitalEducation/2018/05/fortnite_five_things_educators_need_to_know.html Please share your comments below.
Best,
