How I Use It
Setting challenges for students in Minecraft EE has allowed my students to effectively problem solve, show leadership and peer support, extend their learning to higher levels. The use of the NPCs allowed my students to make a timeline of historical characters and relate to their stories!
My Take
The EE version of Minecraft along with the Classroom app and the new coding add on has allowed me to explore a much larger range of STEM topics than I did with traditional Minecraft. The lesson plans and maps available keep me inspired to let the students try more.
