    Press/Media: Other


    In November 2016 the prominent education figure Tom Bennett wrote an article where he questioned the efficacy of the game Minecraft as an educational resource in schools. As a result of this I was approached by Henry Hepburn, the editor of the TESS, to write a response to his article. My article highlighted what I was finding in my recent research project in Dundee primary schools much of which challenged Mr Bennett's claims.
