Minecraft in the classrooms
Minecraft has great potential for use in education for these three reasons:
- Being an open world creativity can fly, and our students can build anything, even mechanisms.
- It is a multiplayer game and therefore facilitates team, cooperative and project work. Playing is not isolating, it is teaming up, supporting each other, having fun, completing adventures and building together.
- The game can be modified to the point that a teacher could design an adventure focused on the theme of their subject to create a story or laws through which the student can learn content of the curriculum.
