Fantastic ideas! Thank you for sharing:)
I like the concept, "why not use this familiar and appealing tool to engage your students," I can't wait to see what my admin things- smile. You give a very convincing rationale.
Interesting idea to incorporate something the students are very familiar with into the classroom.
