To celebrate five years of Daily Edventures, we’re sharing some of our favorite posts. This Daily Edventure was originally published on September 6, 2012.

“We’ve worked with laptops, mobile phones and tablets and I feel that no matter what the device is, students are always motivated.” – Paula Vorne, Finland

“It is essential to reflect on how and why technology is used in the classroom. As educators we cannot throw gadgets at kids and expect grand testing results. Innovative education is purposeful, designed, and reflective.” – Sarah Collins, USA

“The motivational power of video game play for education lies not so much in the technology – the ‘video game’ – but in the way people approach and interact with it – the ‘play.’” – Sebastian Deterding, Germany

“When teachers collaborate together, the best ideas combine together.” – Alice Leung, Australia

“Dare to use media and technology. Communicate with your peers in education and their students and create alliances with other innovative teachers, nationally and internationally.” – Walter Marin, Colombia

“It is very difficult to be innovative when you are working alone; it is much better to bounce ideas off other people. This is how ideas grow and is vital for moving education forward.” – UK
