Myst in the classroom

Well, since I just posted a story about video gaming for journalism students, I had a quick look on YouTube for videos about Myst, one of the most famous problem-solving video games ever.  And I found this wonderful example of a teacher using Myst in his K-12 classroom, to teach students how to use similes and metaphors.

The level of engagement is terrific–they actually groan when they have to leave to go to lunch.

Great example of how a really talented teacher can use technology effectively in a classroom!
